Girls in 4th and 5th grade are encouraged to join Girls on the Run, a fitness/learning program that combines training for a 5k run with lessons on self-esteem. At Hudsonville Christian, we are committed to educating the whole child, and we think a program such as this can help prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living based on their awareness of being created in God’s image. Girls on the Run is not just an athletic program. It is an uplifting program that uses group activities, stretching and running to help girls process, together with the instructor, how all of these components come together to live a life of healthy self-respect honoring God.
5th grade Game time is an after school fun time of playing games both indoor and outdoors. 5th grade students play Matball, Jeninga Ball, Gagaball, etc. for 5 weeks on Monday and Wednesdays from 2:45-4:30 for the months of September and October. Please check out the pictures and see how much fun we had playing games together.
Boys and girls in grades three to five have the opportunity to attend an after-school basketball clinic led by Mr. Los, the elementary physical education teacher. These clinics are held for 3 weeks at various times of the year.
Hudsonville Christian Middle School interscholastic and intramural sports include soccer, cross country, basketball, golf, swimming, volleyball, wrestling, fast pitch softball, baseball, track and tennis.
In keeping with our curriculum structure, sports programs follow an intentional progression from sixth to eighth grade. There are no cuts in sixth grade and the emphasis is on participation and exploring new interests. Interscholastic competition is introduced in seventh grade, with every effort being made to avoid cutting interested students. Participants at this level enjoy similar amounts of playing time.
In eighth grade, students will see increased competition, with coaching emphasis focused on developing higher-level skills. In most situations, one team is formed for each sport and cuts may be necessary. Playing time will vary from player to player, although every effort will be made to ensure each team member participates in each contest.
Hudsonville Christian Middle School is a member of the A.O.K. Christian Athletic League, which also includes Adams Christian, Byron Center Christian, Calvin Christian, Dutton Christian, Heritage Christian, Hope Protestant Reformed Christian, Jenison Christian, Legacy Christian, Moline Christian, West Side Christian and Zeeland Christian Schools.
