The Eastside Christian School athletics program prides itself on representing Christ well in the way that we practice, compete, and treat our fellow athletes, coaches, and officials. As a school, we recognize the value of sports and the learning opportunities that sports provide to our students. We utilize athletics to foster spiritual growth, character development, and physical fitness.  This is achieved through hard work, discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and, of course, fun!  

We encourage participation by having a “no cut” policy and ensure that every participant has an enjoyable experience. Our coaches treat all athletes with respect and have the student’s best interest at heart. Coaches encourage athletes to develop their God-given talents and abilities through competitive play, while stressing the importance of playing in a God-honoring way. All skill levels are welcome. Coaches work to meet the needs of the athlete playing for the first time as well as the athlete aspiring to play at the high school level. 

Eastside Christian School is a member of the Cascade Middle School League, which consists of 17 private schools located in the greater Seattle and Bellevue areas. The values listed by our league constitution are as follows: 

  • To provide healthy and fun activity through competition, good fellowship, and sportsmanship among the schools in the league 
  • To provide a compatible level of competition 
  • To meet the diverse needs of this age group through sport 

At Eastside Christian School we offer the following sports: 

  • Cross Country

I invite you to cheer on our Eastside Christian Eagles at an upcoming sporting event! My hope is that you will see our tremendous young men and women glorifying God in the way that they carry themselves both on and off the court.

I, Alex Goedhard, am a child of a God. I feel God has blessed me with the gifts of discernment and mercy. It seems like just yesterday was my first day joining a new school, called Eastside Christian. It felt like more than just a school; it felt like a family. I was treated kindly and Christ-like by staff and students. I learned about Jesus Christ and how he died for our sins, and that if I believe He did so, I may have eternal life.  I felt so loved by God, and I decided to let Christ into my life. Sure, when I was younger I went to church and Sunday school, but I never took God seriously until I can to ECS. When I interact with others I like to talk in quiet environments without others around.  Some of my passions are baseball, and studying geography and the history that comes with it. With the gifts of discernment and mercy, and the passion and talent for baseball, I feel God may want me to be a genuine teammate and leader guided by God in my baseball career who makes the right decisions on and off the field.
