Zion Athletics

Col. 3:23 & 24 (NIV) says, 'Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.'

The mission of the Zion Lutheran’s Athletic Department is to develop a first-class athletic program committed to excellence, while building strong Christian character in our student athletes. In addition to excellence, we value professionalism, discipline, fairness, mutual respect, high expectations, good sportsmanship, accountability, and passion.

All middle school students are allowed to compete in our athletic program. All fifth through eighth grade students who participate are placed onto junior varsity or varsity teams in football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and track. Zion is a member of the Austin Christian Athletic Association comprised of area private schools. For more information visit www.acaaathletics.org
