A Message from the Athletic Director
Linden Christian School is the home of the Wings. Our teams strive for excellence and serve as ambassadors for Christ on and off the field or court. Our excellent coaches have led the LCS Wings teams to over 182 championship banners, including AAA Boys and Girls Provincial Basketball Champions, AAA Boys and Girls Provincial Volleyball Champions and Provincial Boys Curling. A growing number of our graduating athletes are competing at the college and university level. The success of our program is not based on winning alone. We want our athletes to be champions in all aspects of life. We credit our success not only to superb coaching and talented athletes, but also to the fact that our Athletics Program is grounded in four key principles that are meaningful in sports and in life. At LCS, we:
- Work hard
- Play as a team
- Strive for excellence
- Serve as ambassadors for Christ

At LCS we encourage each student to develop a life-long love of physical activity. Team and individual sports, as well as three fitness academies, are available outside of physical education classes.
Successes and failures in all kinds of situations, including athletics, develop character. We focus on sportsmanship, teamwork, along with perseverance towards individual and common goals.
Participation in athletics at Linden is wide-ranging and promotes many skills and interests. Opportunities include taking on the role of captains or managers of teams or working as student coaches or referees. Students can also participate in organizing specific athletic events such as the annual Terry Fox National Run.
In June, we recognize Senior Years students who have made significant contributions in the areas of leadership and character at our Athletic Awards.
