“You don’t have to play soccer at a World Cup level to love the various components of a sport that Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich famously called the “ballet of the masses.”
Boys’ and Girls’ Varsity and Junior Varsity Soccer, which takes place every Fall, has enjoyed a 30+ year history at SCS. Our soccer players have competed at the New York State regional level as well as going on to play college level soccer. Both our Boys’ and Girls’ soccer teams have been honored with the NYSPHSAA Scholar-Athlete Team award for consecutive years. In addition, both SCS Varsity soccer teams have made it to the final four of New York State championships and have won the honor of NYSPHAA’s “School of Distinction.”
The most important skills in soccer are ball control, passing, and receiving the ball. Other key fundamentals for soccer players are footwork, dribbling, shooting, precision, and positioning on the field. Some general athletic abilities that are essential for soccer players are stamina, speed, and discipline. At SCS our coaches mentor athletes not only with passion but faith for the challenges ahead both in their sports and in life.
" 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."
