Emmanuel Christian Academy provides a competitive athletic program which includes Elementary soccer and basketball, girls and boys Varsity soccer, girls JV and Varsity volleyball, boys Varsity flag football, and girls and boys JV and Varsity basketball.
These games provide for great family fun and memories as our school families enjoy the competition and events surrounding the athletic season. The students enjoy pep rallies, spirit weeks, tournaments, and athletic trips throughout New England to compete against other Christian schools.
Our home games for basketball and volleyball are played at the Mortensen Community Center, located in the Newington Town Hall; our home soccer games are played at the field at John Wallace Middle School. ECA is also a member of the Connecticut Association of Christian Schools (CACS) sports program which holds state and regional tournaments for its eight-team membership.
Summer Sports Camps
Throughout the summer, Emmanuel hosts summer sports camps for soccer, volleyball, and basketball for both Elementary and Secondary students. The sports camps, led by Coach Adrian Torres, will be focused on skill development, and campers will be grouped into two sections: 7-12 year olds and 13-18 year olds.
Mr. Adrian Torres is a teacher and coach at Emmanuel Christian Academy, and has a huge passion for developing young athletes. Mr. Torres has been playing soccer for 19 years and basketball for 15 years. He played for Pensacola Christian College’s soccer team where he was named Team MVP his junior and senior year. During his senior year, Mr. Torres was also named National Player of the Year while leading his college soccer team to winning the National Championship. We have seen first hand his skill and passion for sports when he coached the varsity girl’s basketball team, leading them to the regional championship game and finishing the season with a winning record. Mr. Torres understands the importance of developing skills and fundamentals during the off-season and would be thrilled and honored to help your athlete grow and improve!
