Traverse City Christian School – Athletics


Our Athletics department strives to embody a distinctive Christian character in all athletic activities.  Participating in TC Christian athletics represents an opportunity for young men and women to build the kind of self- discipline that comes from attentiveness, obedience, patience and hard work.  Students on our athletic teams work together to achieve maximum team performance, learn to control mind, body and emotions, respond in a Christ-like manner when character weaknesses are exposed, develop leadership skills, and compete aggressively while exhibiting the highest level of good sportsmanship.

 “It was a pleasure to play against  TC Christian. Your fans and players were without a doubt the most fun and courteous football crowd we’ve been with…. today was exactly what a sport should be – fun.” ~ One Proud Papa

Middle and High School Athletics


More than eighty percent of our high school students participate in at least one high school sport.
Our goal for Jr. Varsity is that students gain the knowledge and skills to compete at the high school level.  At the Varsity level students should have the knowledge and skills needed to compete.  Play time is based on skill level and the level of play of the individual game.
Middle School (6th, 7th and 8th Grades) sports teams serve as a “skill development period”, focusing on player participation and opportunities for all participants. Player skill development will be emphasized first and foremost.
