Welcome to the 2013 Seattle Lutheran High School fall athletic season. Each game, match, cheer or meet is a special growing experience in the lives of all students participating. Athletic events provide a social opportunity for the entire student body, parents and friends.
Student athletes put in many hours of practice developing skills and building a team. Coaches dedicate many hours of teaching skills and preparing athletes for competition. In each contest, athletes have an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and character while under the pressure that is part of athletic competition.
We may provide important support for our athletes by cheering with our cheer squad and being a positive encouraging spectator and/or parent. Applaud athletes when they do a good job and encourage them when they make a mistake.
The goal of Saints Athletics is that competition be an important step in the lives of our student athletes and that our Lord, Jesus Christ, will be honored by the action of each student, athlete and spectator.
Bob Dowding – Athletic Director
A Message from our Head of School
Athletics are a terrific way for all of us to glorify the gifts God has given. Having been involved with coaching for over 22 years, and understanding the lessons acquired in sports participation, my appreciation for the many skills needed for competition is immense. One of the most important lessons learned by student athletes is to take a risk without fear of failure. This is an important life lesson, because it’s how we grow.
At Seattle Lutheran High School we encourage our students to embrace challenge on the field and in the classroom. God is great and has blessed us all with many talents and gifts; it’s our school’s job to help our students recognize and utilize their talents and gifts.
Thank you for supporting our student athletes.
Dave Meyer – Executive Director
