ATHLETICS

CHAMPS

CHAMPS (Christian High Athletics Membership Project Supporters) is a group of volunteers who work to promote fundraising projects for needed equipment and facilities for all sports at all levels and to promote greater interest in the total Holland Christian and Zeeland Christian athletic program.

Educational athletics play a key role in preparing students to be effective image-bearers of Christ in their everyday lives. Pursuing excellence, exhibiting integrity, balancing priorities, communicating with a team, and serving others with talents are lessons our student-athletes learn on the athletic field and are valuable preparation for their career field in the future. We invite you to continue or start a partnership with CHAMPS and Holland Christian Athletics in equipping our student-athletes to impact the world for Christ. Below are some reflections from student-athletes.

 

“I loved the relationships that were formed and made so many friends with people I didn’t even know.”

“Being able to compete in God-honoring ways is a valuable lifelong lesson.”

“It meant a lot to me because of all the good times and fun I’ve had. I’ve made new friends and been able to bring glory to God through the way that I play.”

“It helped me grow as a person and grow in my faith.”

“…relationships, memories, and life-long lessons and skills which shape who I am today.”

“Athletics are so much more than the simple thrill of competition… I learned how to be a team member and a leader… life lessons such as hard work, discipline, and perseverance were impressed on me… I won’t remember each goal, but more importantly I will remember the relationships developed and lessons learned.”

 

CHAMPS enjoys partnering with community supporters to assist the athletic department in seeking excellence in programming. We have a variety of opportunities for you to get involved. Linked below is our donation and sponsorship insert with details for you to look over. Due to the number and diversity of spectators attending, our events are an attractive option for many of our sponsors marketing needs. All donations are fully tax deductible.
