Philosophy


“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.”  Colossians 3:23-24


At Southwestern Christian School, we believe that our athletic program must seek to instill the reality of this passage in the hearts and lives of our athletes.  It is our prayer that through the discipline of athletic practice and contests, Biblical sportsmanship will be developed in our athletes.  We want to honor and serve the Lord Jesus Christ through each contest, whether winning or losing.  Athletic teams at SWCS are to be: (1) ambassadors of Jesus Christ and (2) representatives of our school.


League Competition


Southwestern Christian School is part of a league for team competition involving fifth through eighth grade students.  The schools involved in our sports league are; Yuma Lutheran, St. Francis, Immaculate Conception, Harvest Preparatory, San Pasqual, and SWCS.  Some of our sports teams also participate in tournaments that include teams from schools outside of our primary league. The annual girls’ sports are; softball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.  The boys’ annual sports are; football, soccer, basketball, and softball.  Students are invited to participate in our sports program but must meet eligibility requirements to play.


The team sports that we offer are dependent on volunteers who commit to serving as coaches and referees.  Our sports program has equipped many students to be able to participate in high school sports.  Our graduates are actively

participating in the local high school sports program at all levels of competition.
