Athletics

Our athletics extend the walls of our classrooms. We consider athletics to be extensions of our classrooms—perfect opportunities to learn about each other better as individuals, to explore and encourage one another’s gifts, and to experience Christian community and life struggles together.

But we also love healthy competition and rejoice in well-executed games and meets, and see them as opportunities to influence sports culture positively for Christ. Our coaches are fellow Christ-followers who love the students and the sports they coach, and who not only thrive on teaching and improving skills, but forming Christian disciples through the structure of sports and life on a team.

Holland Christian competes as a member of the Michigan High School Athletic Association for our regulations and postseason play and in the Ottawa-Kent Conference in the Blue Division for regular season play along with Allendale, Coopersville, Fruitport, Hamilton, Spring Lake, Unity Christian and West Catholic.

High School

Athletics are not our main gig as a Christian school, but as parents ourselves, we realize how influential and transformative Christ-following coaches and quality athletic opportunities can be. With 21 in-house athletic teams for boys and girls including mainstream sports like soccer, basketball, swimming, and lacrosse, we’re proud to also offer a variety of additional sports like bass fishing, Dutch dance, and sailing with local schools and quality organizations.

Middle School

We think middle school is a great time to try new things, explore talents, encourage community. Furthermore, we believe that healthy competition, learning to play, striving to win and lose within the rules are all means of learning how to serve God in His kingdom. Towards that end, our coaches seek to develop the athletic gifts of students by stressing commitment to team members, sacrificing self to a larger goal, and graciously accepting both victory and defeat. Our four sports seasons are relatively short to help students identify their abilities, while still encouraging anxiety-free participation!

Unified Sports

Our HCS Unified Sports teams, like all Unified Sports teams nationwide, join males and females with intellectual and/or physical disabilities–the official athletes–and students without disabilities who are the partners on the same teams. The idea behind Unified Sports is not only to give kids with special needs a normative experience, but also to use sports as a quick avenue to friendship and understanding.

All Athletics Opportunities

Although athletics are not our main gig as a Christian school, as parents ourselves, we realize how influential and transformative Christ-following coaches and quality athletic opportunities can be. And as education becomes more individualized, our athletics and after school programs are too. Hence, along with our mainstream basketball and volleyball teams, we’ve added things like volleyball for high school boys, coed sailing opportunities, and coed unified bocce ball.
