Realizing the importance of athletics, Christian Life School offers a wide range of sports activities for its students. Participation as a CLS Eagle offers the student many opportunities for growth in key developmental areas such as focus, discipline, responsibility, self-esteem, and spiritual growth. Team play and practice also offer the physiological benefits of a carefully monitored exercise program and good physical conditioning.
As a Christian school, we are committed to the belief that our Christian faith and ethics are as important to the development of an athlete as the skills needed to play the game. Athletics can then be viewed as an opportunity to express and demonstrate Christian values and witness for the Lord Jesus Christ. The coaches and advisors have been selected to provide a program of athletics that encourages the development of skills within the framework and expression of Christian faith.
Our high school athletics teams are members of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA). As a mid-sized school of nearly 270 students (high school only) we are in Division III of the conference. We are a member of the Midwest Classic Conference. With ten private or religious schools, the Midwest Classic Conference is one of 47 conferences in the state of Wisconsin.
As an athletic department, it is our hope that our athletes realize that they do not only represent themselves on the playing floor or field, athletes represent their team, coach, school, family, and most importantly, Jesus Christ. Our actions, then, should promote a Christ-like spirit of “Praise Performance” directing the glory to God, good sportsmanship, a wholesome attitude, and loyalty to both the team and school. Our goal at all times should be a testimony for Jesus and our athletic competition and sportsmanship to be used by Him to win others to Christ.
