Announcement Regarding 2017 HS Football Season
After intensive effort and numerous meetings, Village Christian School administration has been left with no other decision than to cancel the 2017 high school football season.
VCS has experienced a tough combination of declining interest and a high number of transfers. As a result, and in looking out for the safety of our students and their best interests, the current number of participating student-athletes is simply too low to field a high school team.
We have already begun searching for a new Director of Football to lead us through this next chapter.
Our football program has been integral in the school’s culture for decades, and we are committed to doing everything we can to re-establishing the program’s rich tradition. Understanding that this decision will affect programs and students campus-wide, we will do everything we can to add spirited and engaging events to the calendar this fall. Homecoming activities, including Non-Fire, spirit (dress-up) days, and the Homecoming Dance will be held as planned.
Thank you to all the families that have come alongside the school and the football program over the years. Your dedication and commitment to the student body has had a tremendous impact on generations of Crusaders.
In 2017, we will focus our efforts and coaching staff on developing our middle school athletes into a competitive program that will lay the foundation for the future of VCS football. With more than 50 students signed up, we remain encouraged and believe the community will be experiencing Friday night football games again soon.
We are so blessed by this supportive community and are devastated by the sorrowful weight of this decision. We will communicate further updates as they become available.
