St. Louis Christian College had a long history of athletics, with the Soldiers first competing in men’s basketball during the 1960-1961 season. The Soldiers competed in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) from 1978–2009. After leaving the NCCAA, the Soldiers joined the Association of Christian College Athletics (ACCA), as well as the Midwest Christian College Conference (MCCC). The 2017-2018 academic year was the final year of competition for the Soldiers.
