The philosophy of the Zion Lutheran School after-school sports program is an extension of the overall philosophy of the school. Through athletics we hope to prepare students for full participation in their adult lives. We, as coaches and school officials, seek to develop the values which determine the athlete’s relationship with self, others, and ultimately with God.

Participation in Zion’s organized sports program is voluntary. It is a privilege, and a participant has the responsibilities of courtesy and sportsmanship on the playing field and at school. Zion sees the organized sports experience as a platform for developing athletic, social, and spiritual skills. Students in grades five through eight have numerous opportunities to participate in after-school athletics.
