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 God. Should 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,
Cal Lutheran Athletic Director
