Smithtown Christian School Long Island Athletics


“I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should." (1 Cor. 9:25)

An SCS athlete’s worth, identity, and life’s purpose is found in God. Athletes and their coaches and fellow players begin practices and games in an attitude of prayer and devotion to God. Plus, SCS Athletes train and grow amidst a fun and joyful school spirit that’s 40+ years strong!

After school sports involve a significant portion of the SCS student body. Sports are offered at the Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Junior High levels. Students can choose a sport in 7th grade. Opportunities are offered for junior high students to test into Varsity level athletics. Our athletes enjoy a Student Athlete Fitness Room between seasons.

In accordance with New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Section XI, SCS athletes compete against both public and private New York State schools in various leagues. SCS, part of Conference 4, has participated in NYSPHSAA since 1995.

Transfer Student Athlete Eligibility

Please note these Transfer Eligibility rules as per NYS Public HS Athletic Association and Section XI for incoming transfer students that have participated on a High School Varsity and/or HS Junior Varsity teams:

Any incoming student who transfers to SCS without a corresponding change in residence is not eligible to participate at the Varsity level in any interscholastic athletic contest in a particular sport for a period of one (1) year if as a 9th -12th student he/she participated in that sport during the one (1) year period immediately preceding his/her transfer. The rule says, if you played in a particular Varsity sport (e.g., Varsity soccer as a 9th grader) last year, you will have to sit out for that Varsity sport in your first year (10th grade) at SCS.

However, the rule also states that students in grades 11-12 will be allowed to practice with the teams; they are just not allowed to participate in a scrimmage or game at the varsity level. Also, students in grades 7-10 shall be eligible to participate at the HS Junior Varsity level and practice at all levels.

This was provided as an overview. Specific questions or clarifications of athletic information, eligibility concerns (for transfer students), or other questions should be addressed to the school’s Athletic Director, Mr. Pat Nieto. Mr. Nieto’s email address is: / phone: 631.265.3334 ext. 209.

Competitor's Creed

I give my all – all of the time.
I do not give up. I do not give in.
I do not give out. I am the Lord’s warrior –
a competitor by conviction
and a disciple of determination.
I am confident beyond reason
because my confidence lies in Christ.
The results of my efforts
must result in His glory.

  • ​" The service-learning program at SCS goes hand and hand with Christian education. Students learn about loving Jesus and helping those in need. Then, they practice what they learn by going out and being the "hands and feet" of Jesus to their communities. "
    Dr. Anna Ramos, SCS parent

  • " Knowing that our children are going to school and learning about Christ and hearing biblical truth that is not altered has confirmed to us over and over that SCS is the best choice we could make for our kids' education. "
    Doug & Kelly Jansson, SCS parents

  • " If you aim for heaven, you might get earth thrown in, besides. Aim for heavenly values by sending your kids to Smithtown Christian School, even if it means sacrifice. "
    Daniel Buttafuoco, SCS Grandparent

  • "SCS has been an incredible blessing to our family. Knowing our children are in a Christ-centered environment where they are loved, nurtured and prayed for by their teachers and other members of their school family is so important to us. "

    Rachel Cardwell, SCS Parent

  • "It's impossible to enter this school without coming into the presence of God. It's the only thing that can change lives and because of the faithful teachers, staff and culture of SCS, it changed mine."
