The WHY Behind CCS Athletics

The Cascade Christian Athletics Department strives to use the vehicle of sport to teach our student-athletes to be servant-leaders. Just as Jesus did not come to be served but to serve others (Matthew 20:28), we encourage our student-athletes to lay aside their selfish ambitions and instead serve their teammates. Christlike servant-leaders …

  • are motivated by love to serve others (John 13:1),
  • possess a security that allows them to serve others (John 13:2-3), and
  • initiate servant-leadership to others (John 13:4-5).

Fall Sports

Fall sports are in full swing! On the high school side, we have six sports currently running. This is the third week of competition, and it has been an absolute joy to see parents and family members back in the stands this year to support their Cougar athletes!

In the junior high, this week marks the start of competitions for our four fall sports. What an exciting time for our younger athletes! We hope you can make it out to support them.


This past school year was completely unusual in the world of athletics. Seasons were delayed/shortened, spectators were limited, and HS basketball games were played AFTER graduation! I’m incredibly proud of the way our athletes, coaches, and families adapted and overcame that adversity—talk about being unshakeable!

This year, I’m hoping for a whole lot more of “normal”; but even still, there are few environments that create adversity like athletic competitions do. I’m thankful our student-athletes will be taught all year how to be unshakeable—in faith, in sport, in life.
