In our small-school environment, students are supported not only by their teachers, but also by coaches and peers. Through participation in Zion Lutheran School’s robust athletic programs, we put God first in all circumstances. Zion athletes learn that being a responsible, caring selfless teammate is important not only to our team’s success, but also to our school, our athletic program, and to our church and school ministry.
Our athletics program strive to instill a sense of fair play and good sportsmanship while encouraging fitness and nutrition habits that can last a lifetime. Displaying a positive Christian attitude to fellow athletes, coaches and officials is expected. Above all, our student-athletes get to be what they are – God’s people.
A ZLS student athlete will conduct him/herself in such a manner as to be recognized not only as an athlete but also, more importantly, as a Christian (II Timothy 2:5).
Zion Lutheran School participates in the Lutheran Sports Association of Illinois (LSA) and has won multiple conference championships and state championships. Additionally, our programs regularly compete in the National Lutheran Sports Association competitions.
