Athletic Staff

Our Holland Christian athletic staff are mentors as much as coaches, fellow Christ-followers who love both the students and the sports they coach.

We are grateful for this crew of good people who thrive on teaching and improving athletic skills, but also, and more importantly, in forming Christian disciples through the structure of sports and life on a team. They teach our students how to do Christian life together, as well as how to work hard, be disciplined, and remain encouraging both on and off the fields and courts.
