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.
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.
