“Although winning is important, the program is committed to teaching the proper motivation for excelling: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17.”

— Kevin Roth, Athletic Director  

The Columbus Christian School Athletic Program seeks to develop student athletes into spiritual leaders who bring glory and honor to God and who will make an eternal difference in the lives of others.

It is our desire to not only develop and improve physical skills, but encourage growth in Biblical values and strong Christ-like character. Our coaching staff is committed to investing in student athlete's character by actively teaching humility, integrity, hard work, commitment, discipline, obedience and a healthy competitive spirit. We believe that these values learned through athletic competition provide life training in a challenging world.

Did you know our Athletics programming at CCS is self-funded?

 Crusader coaches and staff are volunteers! Here is what that means for all of us...

  • Each year, our athletic department requires $68,000-$72,000 to cover costs for things like: referees/officials, equipment/maintenance, uniforms, tournament entry fees, off-campus facilities, athlete awards etc.

  • Participation in athletics is FREE for all CCS students. We can offer this because of our on and off campus fundraising efforts…staffed by you!

  • Each athletic family is required to volunteer for a total of 6 athletic events and one volunteer fundraising day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and IU Home Football Games. 

If your student is participating in ANY sport this year (volleyball, basketball, mini-cheerleading, cheerleading, baseball or softball), we need your help to staff our concessions and admissions stations during the fall and winter months. Please consider volunteering during another team's game, so all Crusader families have the opportunity to see their favorite athlete compete. 

In an attempt to streamline this process, we have created a sign-up for all of our scheduled home events to date (volleyball and basketball). Please note: These dates are subject to adjustment/change based on team and facility availability, weather etc. When you have signed up you will be notified automatically should your shift change.
