Athletic Program Overview

Elyria Christian School’s athletic program is designed to stimulate and guide students in their spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional, social and physical development through the acquisition and use of knowledge in the athletic arena.

  • To develop athletes whose character and play glorify God and not the athlete.
  • To have a well-rounded program in which every student has opportunity to participate.
  • To place great emphasis instilling the “will to win” rather than a “win at all cost” concept.
  • To teach unity through team play, obedience through the player-coach relationship, and disciplined commitment through required practice.
  • To assist each individual in achieving his/her maximum potential in the development of a strong, healthy body and an alert mind.
  • To promote good Christ-like sportsmanship amongst the spectators.
  • To represent our membership in KSHSAA and the Wheat State League.
