Athletics Play a Major Role in Spiritual Development

Christian responsibility encompasses all aspects of our students’ lives, including athletics. On the field or the court, our coaches and staff demonstrate to student athletes how Christianity is an essential component of our young men and women’s development into adults. The athletic experience is included in our overall mission to emphasize the priority of Christian values and service. Sports are not only a fun and engaging outlet for your children, but they are also a way to sharpen their skills, understand the importance of being active and strengthen their emotional muscles to better connect with peers. No matter what sport your child is interested in, athletics teaches accountability to others while attaining personal accomplishments. Opportunities for interscholastic sports at Illiana include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis, track, volleyball, wrestling, cheerleading, and softball.

What Makes Our Athletic Offerings Exceptional

No matter where your children play sports, they will discover the benefits of hard work and pushing toward personal success. There is a myriad of opportunities to see examples of following the Lord’s footsteps while they are out on the court or field. In a sports setting, teaching Christian values reinforces a foundation for applying these principles to real-world situations.

As a parent, you will be happy with:

  • The connections made between sports and faith by our experienced coaches in a constructive environment.
  • The priority given to encouraging Christian values, such as humility, discipline, self-control, and kindness.
  • Coaches that teach sportsmanship, self-control, and grace, including how to handle strong emotions in a competitive setting
  • The life lessons acquired that can spark from being on any sports team, such as respect for others and the need for physical activity.

How Our Sports Create A Close-Knit Community

Our community leads by example through the support of our student-athletes. This encourages our students to show support of others. Our more than 9,000 alumni take with them a vigorous school spirit that was first ignited by their time on the court or in the stands as spectators. Our coaches understand how enriching a positive athletic experience can be to young men and women.

Our fans enjoy: 

  • The opportunity to be a strong supporter of your children’s sports activities by being a role model and mentor.
  • The ability to watch your children enjoy a recreational program while continuing to find their way as servants to the Lord.
  • The sheer excitement and fun of coming together to support a team as a fan in an energetic atmosphere. 
  • The all-encompassing attitude that encourages all of the team’s players to be their personal best.
