Athletics is more than competition. Participating in athletics is an opportunity for health, safety, self-discipline, fitness, movement, and sportsmanship. Physical education, strength training, yoga, and fitness are part of every school day. We cheer when the Cedar Crest Academy Timbers play soccer, volleyball, and basketball and participate in track and field.
