Enrollments of CCS member-schools, grades 9-12, are used for determining division play for playoffs in most sports. The CCS Bylaws for each sport describe how these divisions are determined. Based upon our enrollment, these are the current divisions that TKA participates in for CCS Playoffs:
- Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country – Division IV
- Soccer, Baseball, Softball- Division III
- Leagues are not set up by division, therefore we play teams from Division I to Division V, in league and non-league competition.
The King’s Academy plays a variety of schools from all divisions in non-league and league play. The majority of our competing teams are from the Central Coast Section, but we do play in tournaments and games out of the section. The leagues that we participate in are:
- West Bay Athletic League (WBAL)
- Peninsula Athletic League (PAL)
- Central Coast Section (CCS)
- Santa Clara Valley Athletic League
