There are many ways you can help to support HCS and ZCS athletic programs. Volunteers are always needed: from one-time commitments in the concession stand, to joining a committee, to being a part of the CHAMPS board, there is a way for you to plug in. Your partnership helps CHAMPS provide the necessary facilities and equipment for our athletes to seek and perform at their best.
CHAMPS Athletic Boosters
We need your help! If you have a passion for affordable athletics in a Christian context, we have a spot for you.
Dear Partners of Holland Christian Athletics,
CHAMPS takes great pride in empowering athletes with upgrades to athletic facilities and equipment. There are exciting facilities upgrades happening this summer and many of you have been on campus to see some of them! We are currently in the midst of a substantial upgrade to our stadium and re-located track & field with the “Striving for the Goal” campaign. This capital project provides significant enhancements to our facilities and athlete experiences. CHAMPS is also leading in the following auxiliary projects this summer: relocation of the weight room, addition of batting cages and synthetic turf in the shed facility, installation of sheltered benches for soccer and lacrosse, addition of promotional windscreens to our outdoor facilities and building a new ground level press box for the middle school fields. Each of these CHAMPS funded improvements, along with the capital project, will significantly enhance the athletic experience for all 600 plus athletes in developing Christian character, pursuing sport, caring for teammates and displaying courage in competition.
You are invited to support CHAMPS, the fundraising arm for both Zeeland Christian and Holland Christian athletics. There are three key fundraisers led by CHAMPS for you to participate in:
- Concessions are offered at many of our events. Parents of athletes serve as volunteers in providing this hospitality. We are thankful for the many dedicated parents who commit to staffing concessions. For those of you not assigned to your child’s event, please email Jennifer Bieri (email@example.com) with your interest in volunteering on occasion.
- Our Coupon Book is a staple in the greater Holland area offering discounts to restaurants, golf courses and other local businesses. CHAMPS also now offers all of the coupons digitally on your mobile device at www.champs.hollandchristian.org. Both options offer a $15 summer sale right now good through December 31, 2022.
- CHAMPS Donation and Sponsorship Opportunities provide a way for individuals and businesses alike to contribute to and partner with our athletes. The variety and number of spectators attending our events provide local businesses great marketing value in our community. We hope you can either become a member of the “Maroon & White Club” or participate in our events with a sponsorship. Details are on the form included.
We are excited in anticipation of our upcoming athletic year and thankful for the many ways our athletes are blessed through CHAMPS. Please pray for our coaches and athletes as we prepare our programs for hundreds of individual athletes to have positive educational experiences based on Christ as our king. We hope for each athlete to develop a more meaningful relationship with Jesus as an athlete and we seek to use our athletic teams to influence sports culture through Christ. Thank you for your ongoing partnership with our athletic programs at Holland Christian. Go Maroons!

Ways to get involved with CHAMPS
CHAMPS Coupon Books are again offering a digital option for all the same great coupons, and are again always with you on your mobile device! Like the paper coupon books, the digital option includes an account that can be shared with each coupon allowed to have one validation. Both are selling for $30.
To purchase the digital CHAMPS Coupon Books, visit champs.hollandchristian.org/ then click on “Purchase ’22 CHAMPS” at the top of your screen. (Once you access the site and purchase the digital coupons, you will be able to add an “app” icon that links directly to the digital coupons on your home screen of your mobile device by clicking the box with the arrow.)
The restaurant, playtime and golf discounts in the Holland/Zeeland area pay for themselves after only a few uses. CHAMPS coupons have been a staple fundraiser for about 50 years supporting athletes at both Zeeland Christian and Holland Christian Schools, purchasing sports equipment and improving athletic facilities at both schools.
If you prefer the paper coupon books, they are available at each school building and several area businesses–including Russ’ and Quality Carwash locations–and through TRIP at both ZCS and HCS for $30 by cash or check. Either way, you save money and support both local businesses and student-athletes at the same time!
Thank you for supporting our partnership with the local community and athletics at both Holland Christian and Zeeland Christian Schools!
We are always adding to our concessions team! There are a variety of ways you can help, depending on your interests and the time you can commit. Contact Jennifer Bieri at firstname.lastname@example.org to be emailed a concessions volunteer sign up, or call her at 616.820.2916.
There are a variety of ways you can either directly donate to CHAMPS, or sponsor almost anything from a particular sporting event to custom water bottles sold at our concessions stands. To read more about these various ways of sponsoring, check out our CHAMPS Opportunity Sheet.
