Athletes for Sea Beggar men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball arrived on campus on Saturday, August 6 to begin their two-week training camp before the start of the fall semester. With 38 new faces joining the teams this fall, training camp is in full swing as the athletes prepare for the second season of NAIA Intercollegiate play and the first season of NCCAA play.
This summer, Providence joined the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) for two primary reasons. The first is the opportunity to play for the National Christian College Championship and the second is the experience to partner with and identify with the other great Christian Colleges from around the country. Providence Athletic Director, Dr. Chuck Ryor is excited for this development. “This is another great step forward for Providence Athletics. In addition to our involvement in the NAIA, Sea Beggar student-athletes will now get to compete in an atmosphere that is intentionally Christ-centered while also being highly competitive.”
Sea Beggar Athletics will be easier for fans to follow this year with a few new components that were made available to the college because of our affiliation with the NAIA. The first is the new athletics website with schedules, rosters, stats and all things athletic that are easy to find in one place. Go to www.seabeggars.com to check it out!
The 2016-2017 school year will also feature something that Sea Beggar families will especially like…LIVE STREAMING of all home athletic contests! Stretch Internet will provide the service, which gives a live video feed and real-time scoring and statistics for all home games.
“We’re very excited to team up with Providence Christian to provide their fans, parents, alumni and supporters a new and dynamic way to follow their athletic programs,” said Stretch Internet CEO Ryan Ermeling. “As the official streaming partner of the NAIA, this is a natural partnership, and we’re thrilled to work with the Providence team.”.
