Eagles News · Please Read for Fall Sports!


Dear Student-Athletes and Parents,

My name is Eric Dall, and I am now the Athletic Director at Scottsdale Christian Academy. I am very excited to return to SCA after spending the last 5 years as an Athletic Director at various schools in Phoenix. SCA is a very special place to me. I attended high school here as well as taught and coached here after college, so it feels a bit like coming home to be back on campus and see all of the familiar faces.

I am very excited about the 2017-18 school year. We have many teams with potential to compete for League, Region and State Championships. I have met with many of the coaches and am truly impressed with the caliber of coaches at SCA. I would like to thank Coach Chuck Gibbs for his hard work in the athletic department and for helping to ensure a smooth transition this summer. Additionally, I would like to introduce Mr. Matt Bottoms. Matt is the Assistant Athletic Director and brings with him many years of experience as an Athletic Director and a skill set perfect for our athletic department.

Below you will find a list of pre-participation paperwork and obligations that student-athletes must complete and have on file to begin practice, as well as fall practice and coach information. Please contact the coach listed to get further details. More information will be given at team meetings scheduled by coaches at the start of the season.  For those competing in fall sports, Sports Participation Packets are due now in the Athletic Office.  A student is not permitted to practice or participate in competitions until the following items are on file in the Athletic Office:
