Athletic Director's Corner

From the Athletic Director
James Van HookAt Northland Christian, we believe athletics is a proving ground for building and growing the next generation of Christian leadership.

We have built a team of coaches with high-level technical skills in their sport. We strive to train our athletes as if they will compete at the collegiate level. This includes intense physical training, as well as concepts that are utilized at the collegiate and professional levels. Our coaches have the highest expectations for the athletes on campus, and Northland Christian athletes deliver time and time again.

We aim and build for championships, but championships don’t define us. Trophies and medals lose their luster, but the character development that occurs through hard work, playing through adversity, and being a contributing member of a fiercely competitive team with a common goal is lifelong.

Our coaching staff is proud to graduate student athletes that are prepared to take on the challenges of college, the workplace, and the ever-changing world. Our student athletes graduate with lifelong memories, lifelong friends, and the tools to be scholars and leaders with a Christian worldview.
