Success PDF Print E-mail

How do we define success?

43-10...that's the combined win/loss record of the C-Hawk varsity basketball teams this year.  What an amazing accomplishment for our coaches and players!
The soccer and basketball teams had 10 players earn all league honors.  Our winter athletic teams had a league MVP, a defensive MVP, a Coach of the Year, and league sportsmanship award!  
For all this success, we give thanks to God for all the blessings he gives us.  But, we can celebrate more success than games won and honors earned.
Success to me is the positive attitude that I witnessed in our soccer team this season.  Success to me is when a player offers a hand to help their opponent up off the ground in a semi-final basketball game.   Success to me is when players can look each other in the eye after a game, knowing that they played their hardest.  Success to me is when players leave the locker room with their hearts on their sleeves and their heads held high.  Success to me is seeing so many supporters of our school travel so far and so often to cheer on our players.
Thank you for helping make this winter sports season a success.  I pray that God continues to bless the efforts of our coaches and players during our spring sports season!

Welcome to California Lutheran High School Athletics!  I love when we have newcomers enter  our gymnasium.  The comments that I hear from them usually sound like this: “Wow, this is a pretty cool gym?  How many people are in your school?”.  They are right.

We may be a small school, but we boast some of the more impressive athletic facilities in our area, especially for a school of our size!  I’ve been in many gyms in the Southern California, yet I haven’t seen a gymnasium and concession stand area that rivals what we’re blessed with.  Our athletic facilities are a wonderful example of the dedication and generosity from hundreds of people who support our school ministry.

These facilities are just a small part of the CLHS athletic program.  Our entire school program is blessed with amazing and dedicated student-athletes, parents,and fans.  I’m blessed to work with a supportive faculty, staff, and administration.  Your coaches are dedicated and work tirelessly to improve themselves.  They strive to provide a quality, Christ centered teaching in the classroom and on the playing fields.   

Enter into our gym, and you’ll read this passage next to a cross on a wall, “Whatever you do, to it all to the glory of God” (1st Corinthians 10:31).  Athletes at California Lutheran will learn to put this passage into practice.  I pray that our student-athletes experience success on the playing fields and courts.  The banners and championships are temporary.  The lessons learned in athletics will live on in their lives of service to Him.  Most importantly, the lessons learned from  God’s Word will live on in eternity.  

In His Service,

David Peter

Athletic Director

Welcome to Cal Lutheran Athletics, the home of the C-Hawks.

California Lutheran High School has had a long and storied tradition in athletics over the course of our thirty-five year history.  As a coach and as the athletic director at CLHS I’ve seen some great individual and team successes on our playing fields.  I’ve been blessed to witness and to be a part of numerous league and state championships.  At CLHS, we as Christians know that these blessings begin with and revolve around our loving and merciful God. 

Winning championships are great, but the aspect of our athletics program that I am most proud of is the Christian character displayed by our coaches and student athletes on the playing field.  We honor Him with our time and talents, by our words and through our actions, understanding that all we have is solely a result of His grace.

Although we all fall short of leading the perfect life of our Savior, Jesus, C-Hawk coaches, teachers, and students strive to reflect Christian virtues demonstrated by Jesus in His ministry.  By exhibiting compassion, forgiveness, honesty, and love for others during practice and competition, we pray that our students are being molded to be the Christian leaders of tomorrow.

It is not easy to be a student athlete.  The rigors of the classroom coupled with the trials and tribulations experienced on the playing fields can at times be overwhelming.  It is the responsibility of our C-Hawk coaches to help guide and direct our student athletes through these tough times.  The comforting guidance and motivation our coaches and students have is found on the wall of our gym, “Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” (1st Cor. 10:31). 

We want all students and parents to have an enjoyable experience as part of our athletic program.  In order for this to be rewarding, keep in mind our motivation in life – to glorify GodShould Christian athletes and coaches want to do their best and strive to win?  Absolutely!  God expects no less than our very best efforts to use the gifts He has given to us.   God expects excellence!  Excel through the One who was perfect, Jesus!  Serve God with your gifts and He will bless those efforts!

It is my prayer that God would continue to bless the C-Hawk athletic program with quality coaches, hard-working athletes, supportive fans and plenty more banners to adorn our walls.

To Him Be the Glory,

Dave Peter
Cal Lutheran Athletic Director
