Lightning has Impact

The Lightning Athletics program develops student-athletes who glorify God through perseverance and work ethic, commitment to teammates, serving their community, and pursuing excellence and achievement in sport and life, both on and off the field of competition.

As a core part of our identity as a school, the athletics program forms a rich part of our history and is part of our legacy in the community. It is an essential element for building unity with alumni, parents, students and community sports partners like local schools and club programs.

Each level of athletics development K-12 serves as a progression for students – moving from an emphasis on participation and physical literacy toward specialization and championship competition.

Elementary Goals

  • Physical literacy and movement

The elementary athletics program is focused on participation and is supported by a robust physical and personal health education curriculum. The aim is to get young children moving while helping them develop healthy attitudes about sports. We offer after-school clinics in volleyball and basketball and run co-ed intramurals during lunch and breaks. Grades 4-5 basketball and volleyball teams are run during the school year with teams competing against local schools and local Christian independent schools. Many students participate in Cross Country and Track & Field.

The middle years athletic program provides a transition from recreationally and participatory athletics to more competitive activities. Grades 6 and 7 students continue to be part of local cross-country, track and field, volleyball and basketball teams (there are no cuts). In grade 8, student athletes are selected to represent our school in local and regional competition including the Eastern Fraser Valley Championships. The primary focus of the program is to extend athletic participation for as many students as possible to ensure we have a roster of talented athletes for our junior and senior teams.
