Sports Activities

Sporting activities can teach our children many valuable lessons, including self-discipline, healthy eating habits, respecting authority, and playing with integrity. Our coaches train students using Biblical principles and expect players to maintain high standards in their interactions with others.

Concordia is proud of its many athletic accomplishments. Our 7th-8th Boys Basketball teams won Lutheran State Championships in 1999 and 2000. The 2000 team went on to the Final Four at the National Invitational Tournament in Valparaiso, Indiana. The 7th-8th Girls and 7th-8th Boys teams have qualified numerous times for the LSA State Tournament in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Soccer teams have claimed many league championships. Basketball teams of all ages have claimed numerous tournament championships. Concordia has had individual participants win State Titles in Track.

Our athletes are recognized at Sports Banquets held throughout the school year.
