Atonement Lutheran School encourages students to participate in activities outside the classroom and strives to provide an array of options. We strongly believe that being involved in your community has many benefits, and we want our students to have a well rounded experience here. Participating in activities allows students to discover and explore new talents, pursue hobbies that increase learning and growth, push boundaries and challenges them to try new things. Involvement teaches students to work as a team and learn how to be coached. And, of course, physical movement is always beneficial!
Atonement has a comprehensive school sports program. We regard academics as the primary function and a secondary goal to offer a full sports program. Eligibility for any of the team sports is dependent upon maintaining grade and disciplinary requirements. The primary emphasis of our sports programs is on building a winning and cooperative team spirit. No players are cut from the team roster and all players see action in the junior games. Senior teams have starters and reserves.
- Flag Football
- Soft Ball
- Cabbage Ball
