Program Overview

The Lighthouse Christian Athletics Track & Field program is designed to guide all students to improve as individuals physically, mentally and spiritually through the sport of Track & Field. Our primary objective is to teach them how to glorify God in their actions, words and character by using the gifts in which God has given each of them.

We are committed to acting in a manner that reflects Christ. How we act off the field is just as important as how we act on the field. Our main physical goal is to improve ourselves from where we begin to where we end in the season. We can do this by consistent practice and competing with others that push us to compete at a higher level.

This program can be used for self-improvement as well as competing at a higher level with a more serious focus. The coaching staff is committed to assist each individual with their goals along-side the encouragement from the parents. Communication is key with the coaching staff in what each athletes’ goals are for the season.
