Lakewood Park Christian School is a member of the IHSAA with Varsity teams that are listed above.  In addition to these Varsity teams, we also have Junior Varsity teams, Junior High teams (7th and 8th grade) and 5th/6th grade teams in most of these sports.

Mission: The Lakewood Park Christian School Athletic Department exists to glorify God through shaping difference makers for Christ by providing life-on-life discipleship opportunities through athletics.

Core Values: The core values we hold and seek to instill in our student-athletes have been summarized in our Christian Athlete’s Creed:

The Christian Athlete’s Creed:

Jesus Christ is all that matters.
I will play for His glory and the Fame of His Name.
I will play for the Audience of One. 
I don’t need to play for approval or significance because in Christ I already have the approval of the only One who matters and I am infinitely significant in His sight.
I am committed to excellence in all I do.
I will be a leader on my team and in my school. When necessary, I will use words.
I will work hard in practice, preparation and play.I will strive with all my might to win, but will not confuse winning with success. Success comes when I give my best with a good attitude.
I will be a good team member who submits to my coaches’ authority, understands  and fulfills my role on the team, and loves, serves and encourages my teammates.
I will treat my opponent as my friend, not my enemy, because our competition brings out the best in me and gives me a chance to put my hard work and preparation to the test.
I will graciously submit to the decisions of the officials, following the example of Jesus, who, when faced with imperfect authority, continued entrusting Himself to Him who judges justly.

More information about our beliefs and policies can be found in our Athletic Handbook.
