BCA Basketball Teams Rise to the Top

The Burlington Christian Academy showed its dominance in Christian basketball circles again this year.

The girls’ team, coming off three undefeated seasons, had a younger, less experienced team this year.

Despite that, in three tournaments this season (CAASO, HDCH Invitational and Guelph District) they finished second, third and first, respectively, going 12-2 overall.

The BCA boys, meanwhile,  flexed their muscles this year, going undefeated in all three of their tournaments.

BCA boys faced 15 different Christian schools from across southern Ontario, highlighting their wins with exceptional defence and timely baskets.

Both teams are looking forward to next season as the majority of the players on the  two rosters return.

“It has been great to see our basketball program continue to develop young students to ensure our teams are consistently near the top,” BCA athletic director J.D. Collier stated. “Many elementary schools go through a boom-bust cycle. However, through the dedication of our volunteer coaches we have been able to develop individual player skills and an excellent team system.”

Burlington Christian Academy Students Finalists at TIFF Kids Awards

Students from Burlington Christian Academy (BCA) were proud to be on the short list of finalists at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival 2015 and a top three finalist for the TVO Kids Choice Award.

Using iPad technology, the group of 12 grade four students directed a short film entitled The New Kid, a story of a girl who daydreams about making new friends on her first day at a new school.
Their great showing at this competition meant the BCA students were able to see their work shown on the big screen at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto.
“We’re very proud of our kids!” said Karen Besseling, parent volunteer at BCA’s computer class. “They used their own creativity and team spirit to develop, shoot and edit this film. The whole experience reinforced the teaching, but going beyond the classroom also made it fun for them.”
