Athletics

The Mount Dora Christian Academy Athletic Program is used as an outlet for students to grow and develop as athletes and Christians.

MDCA offers a variety of athletics teams to students starting from 6th grade. Our experienced coaches not only teach athletes the fundamentals of their sport but also emphasize teamwork and time management skills to help students maintain their grades and manage their classwork. Our coaches strive to build strong relationships with their student-athletes, serving as positive role models and mentors both on and off the field. We believe that athletics provide an excellent opportunity for personal growth and character development, and we are committed to fostering a supportive environment that helps our student-athletes excel both academically and athletically.
 

At MDCA, we believe in providing our students with comprehensive healthcare services, which is why we have a dedicated full-time athletic trainer on campus. Our athletic trainer is highly qualified and possesses the expertise needed to recognize, diagnose, and treat various injuries and illnesses. They also provide continuous care after diagnosis from a physician and offer daily rehabilitation services to aid in the recovery process. In addition, our documentation and reporting system ensures that all injuries and rehabilitation services are documented and reported effectively. We also have an onsite return-to-play protocol that ensures the safety of our student-athletes when returning to their sport after an injury. With our athletic trainer, MDCA is committed to providing the best possible care for our student-athletes.
