King’s High School Athletics

The King’s High School Athletic program is committed to building champions in life – on and off the field. Our first-class coaching staff strives to equip our student-athletes with tools and skills to serve and lead in their communities.

We encourage multi-sport athletes at King’s High School. Coaches work together to ensure every athlete has the ability to pursue their interests, developing into a well-rounded individual. At the high school, we offer sports for every interest and skill level. 

Most of our coaching staff are alumni and have once been in their athletes’ shoes before. Our coaching staff offers far more than just coaching the athletes in the skills of their sport but are there to mentor athletes as they become young adults serving Christ.

King’s High School offers a variety of sports

Our boys’ sports teams include football, basketball, soccer, baseball, and golf. For girls’ sports teams, we offer basketball, soccer, volleyball, cheerleading, tennis, and golf. Track and field and cross country are both co-ed teams at King’s High School.
