Athletics at ECS
Emmanuel Christian is excited to “assist the family by providing students with godly, loving training that disciples them to exemplify Christ, make biblically based decisions, and attain academic excellence.” Our athletic department has the same goal in training, coaching, and guiding our athletes. Our teams seek to compete at a high level while striving to please the Lord in all that we do.
Athletically Emmanuel is a member of three associations: the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), the Toledo Area Athletic Conference (TAAC) and the Northwest Ohio High School Soccer League. These three associations provide strong competition, strong interscholastic relationship and increase our own school spirit.
As members of the Ohio High School Athletic Association we will have the privilege of competing in end of season tournament play on both a team and individual level for our varsity sports. EC completed its probationary year in 2014-15 and became full members at the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. As a member of the OHSAA, Emmanuel adheres to the OHSAA by-laws and regulations. Both our school and our individual athletes follow these standards. Note: Michigan students may participate in Emmanuel athletics if they have been continuously enrolled at Emmanuel since the start of 4th grade. Students enrolling after the start of 4th grade are not eligible to participate in Emmanuel athletics for grades 7-12. Please call the office if you have questions about this or other athletic policies and guidelines.
