The Student Experience
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Trinity Lutheran School is proud to participate in the Lutheran School Sports League (LSSL), offering both Basketball and Volleyball at the Varsity and Junior Varsity level for girls and boys in grades 4 through 8.
Crusader Varsity Volleyball runs October to December, while Varsity Basketball runs February through April with practices held 3-4 times per week. Varsity level sports in the LSSL are competitive, with a focus on building higher level team play based on fundamental skills. Playing time in league games is at the discretion of the coach. Although designed for student-athletes in grades 7 and 8, younger students are invited to try out for the team.
Junior Varsity Volleyball runs August through September, while Junior Varsity Basketball runs January through February with practices 2-3 times per week. JV level sports in the LSSL are designed to focus on fundamental skills and developing the love of the game. Playing time in league games is as equal as possible for all members of the team. The JV level is designed for students in grades 5 and 6, but student-athletes in grade 4 are often invited to participate.
We are blessed to have an athletic court on our campus where we hold practices after school as well as host home games; home games are sometimes played at Wahiawa District Gym just down California Ave. Away games are played at the various LSSL members' campuses, including Aiea, Kaneohe, and Pearl City.
In addition to Volleyball and Basketball, Crusader Athletics participates in a competitive Cross Country meet in November, as well as a Track and Field meet in May; both events are for all students in grades 4 through 8.
