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 upgrading athletic facilities and purchasing equipment for athletes. The following CHAMPS projects completed recently include:
Aquatics Training Equipment – Baseball & Softball Batting Cages – Basketball Shooting Machines – Cross Country & Track Sound System & Team Tents – Football Headsets – Golf Indoor Simulator – Lacrosse & Soccer Stadium Shelters & Goals – Tennis Court Resurfacing & Team Room Casework – Unified Portable Bocce Court – Volleyball Net System – Weight Room Equipment – Windscreen Outdoor Branding – Holland & Zeeland Christian Middle School Miscellaneous Equipment Purchases
Supporting over 700 individual athletes through these projects and purchases has only been possible because of the partnership with families and businesses in the greater Holland area. You are invited to continue or begin partnering with CHAMPS through at least one of our three key fundraisers:
- CHAMPS 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. Please sign up early if it is an expectation of your child’s team or contact Jennifer Bieri (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are willing to get involved beyond volunteering for your child’s team.
- The CHAMPS Coupon Book is new and improved for 2024! The production of the book is now contracted through a national fundraising company, SaveAround. In addition to local restaurant, golf and business discounts, there will be regional and national coupons represented as well. Each book also comes with a free code for mobile app coupons for the greater Holland area and across the US based on your location. We hope every family of an athlete participates with the purchase of two plus books. The sample 2024 book and additional information is below.
- CHAMPS Donation and Sponsorship Opportunities provide a way for individuals and businesses alike to partner with athletics. This opportunity is only requested in June each year to streamline the process of requesting support from the community. Thank you for your consideration to become a member of the “Maroon & White Club” and/or participate in the variety of sponsorship opportunities. The opportunities sheet and additional information is below.
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 athletes to have educational experiences based on Christ as our King. We hope for each athlete to develop a more meaningful relationship with Jesus on their team and we seek to use athletics to influence sports culture for Christ. We appreciate your partnership with Holland and Zeeland Christian Schools through CHAMPS.

For over 50 years, the Coupon Book fundraiser has been a staple for CHAMPS and a benefit to athletes, community members and greater Holland area restaurants, golf courses and local businesses.
The 2024 Coupon Book is new and improved! (click to view the sample) The production of the book is now contracted through a national fundraising company, SaveAround. In addition to the lakeshore discounts, our new partnership gives us access to regional coupons. Each purchased book comes with an activation code for 12 months of mobile app coupons for the greater Holland area as well as across the US based on your location. Both the book and mobile app coupons all for $30!
If you represent a business and are interested in placing a coupon in future CHAMPS Books, please contact Aaron Verhagen (firstname.lastname@example.org) / 616.633.7445. Businesses have the option to limit their discount exclusively to CHAMPS coupon book holders.
2024 Books are available for purchase in late August, 2023, at Quality Car Wash and Russ’ Restaurant locations as well as Ditto, Community Restaurant, Holland Christian High School and Zeeland Christian School. Purchase your book through HC or ZC TRIP for a 10% discount! 2024 coupons are valid from when the book is purchased until December 31, 2024.
The books pay for themselves after only a few uses, but raise significant funds to directly benefit our middle school and high school student athletes. Thank you for supporting athletics at both Holland Christian and Zeeland Christian Schools through the purchase of a 2024 CHAMPS Coupon Book!
There are a variety of ways you can either directly donate to CHAMPS to become a member of the Maroon & White Club, or sponsor almost anything from a particular sporting event to custom water bottles sold at our concessions stands.
