Welcome to the 2018-2019 athletic year. Eastside Christian is committed to providing a Christ centered environment for your son/daughter, equipping them as servant leaders in His kingdom. Middle school athletics is an excellent vehicle for the development of individual skills, teamwork, leadership, and competition. It is an extra-curricular activity, not required, so the expectations will be demanding for any participating student.

  • Evergreen School (North Seattle)
  • Renton Christian School
  • Explorer West Middle School
  • Puget Sound Adventist Academy
  • French American School (Mercer Island)

The middle school athletics program participates in 3 seasons: Fall, Winter, and Spring.  All 5th -8th graders are eligible to participate.  All sports are no cut, however, several standards must be meet for each student to participate on the team.

We offer the following sports:

I, Gabby Starkenburg, was put here for a purpose by my Heavenly Father. Jesus has blessed me with the spiritual gifts of faithfulness, service, and leadership. However, sometimes in life, I haven’t been so faithful. One Saturday night in 5th grade, I was seriously doubting God. I had just broken my leg, and it looked like I might have to undergo a surgery. I didn’t think there was a God. If there was, why had this happened to me? I prayed to the Lord that night, “Please show me a sign that you’re real.” The next morning, at church, a girl came up to me. I had never seen her before. She said to me: “I was praying during the service, and Jesus put it on my heart to tell you this verse.” The girl then proceeded to read me Jeremiah 29:11. “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Ever since that day, I’ve had no doubt in my mind that there is a God. As I go into high school, I will be searching for ways that I can use my spiritual gifts. The best way for me to serve God is by showing mercy, love, compassion, and respect to those around me. I am able to go into high school without fear because I know that ECS has prepared me both academically and spiritually for a great high school experience.
