ACA was recognized along with 12 other WNC schools for the National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School award. The award distinguishes schools that strive for their student athletes to compete in a safe environment. Athletic Trainer Heidi Pieper is in her 5th year at ACA and has pioneered the Athletic Training program for the Lions athletic program. In order to achieve this award athletic programs must:
· Create a positive athletic healthcare administrative system
· Provide or coordinate pre-participation physical examinations
· Promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities
· Plan for selection, fit function and proper maintenance of athletic equipment
· Provide a permanent, appropriately equipped area to evaluate and treat injured athletes
· Develop injury and illness prevention strategies, including protocols for environmental conditions
· Provide or facilitate injury intervention
· Create and rehearse a venue-specific Emergency Action Plan
· Provide or facilitate psychosocial consultation and nutritional counseling/education
· Be sure athletes and parents are educated of the potential benefits and risks in sports as well as their responsibilities
Thanks Heidi for working with our upper and middle school athletic programs!
After coming off of a historic season last year, ACA girls varsity soccer is picking up right where they left off. The Lions reached the NCISAA 2-A championship for the first time before falling to Cape Fear Academy in overtime 2-1. The Lions are currently 6-0-2, 3-0-0 most recently beating conference rival Carolina Day School 1-0. ACA has the only undefeated record left in WNC girls soccer.
Come out and support the Hoops for Habitat event Friday, January 23 when ACA’s basketball teams will take on rival Carolina Day School. During game intermissions, students, parents, and fans will be able to purchase bottomless spaghetti bowls to enjoy while watching the event. All proceeds go toward the Habitat for Humanity $18,000 goal that our students have been fundraising for since the beginning of the school year. ACA has raised over $8,000 towards their goal and were recently approved with Carolina Day and Christ School for a $4,000 State Farm grant.
