The Eastside Christian School athletics program prides itself on representing Christ well in the way that we practice, compete, and treat our fellow athletes, coaches, and officials. As a school, we recognize the value of sports and the learning opportunities that sports provide to our students. We utilize athletics to foster spiritual growth, character development, and physical fitness.  This is achieved through hard work, discipline, teamwork, perseverance, and, of course, fun!  

We encourage participation by having a “no cut” policy and ensure that every participant has an enjoyable experience. Our coaches treat all athletes with respect and have the student’s best interest at heart. Coaches encourage athletes to develop their God-given talents and abilities through competitive play, while stressing the importance of playing in a God-honoring way. All skill levels are welcome. Coaches work to meet the needs of the athlete playing for the first time as well as the athlete aspiring to play at the high school level. 

Eastside Christian School is a member of the Cascade Middle School League, which consists of 17 private schools located in the greater Seattle and Bellevue areas. The values listed by our league constitution are as follows: 

  • To provide healthy and fun activity through competition, good fellowship, and sportsmanship among the schools in the league 
  • To provide a compatible level of competition 
  • To meet the diverse needs of this age group through sport 

At Eastside Christian School we offer the following sports: 

  • Cross Country
  • Volleyball 
  • Boys Basketball 
  • Girls Basketball 
  • Track & Field 
  • Co-ed Tennis 

I invite you to cheer on our Eastside Christian Eagles at an upcoming sporting event! My hope is that you will see our tremendous young men and women glorifying God in the way that they carry themselves both on and off the court.

Athletics Director 


I, Tara Liu, am a child of God. I love to travel, spend time with my friends and family, and do gymnastics. God has blessed me with the spiritual gifts of leadership, exhortation, and faith. I’m an introvert, so I usually stick around people who I’ve gotten to know and often don’t go beyond my comfort zone. However, being a gymnast, I am constantly faced with challenges that force me out of my comfort zone. From my experiences with gymnastics, I have become more confident with myself, and I hope to use my confidence to become a leader and an example for others. Being at ECS has helped me identify what my spiritual gifts are and I hope to continue using them in high school. As I move into high school, I plan to use my gifts to be the type of friend who others can talk to and count on, be an example to others, and help others build a stronger relationship with God.
