Activities and Sports
Bethlehem Lutheran School students actively participate in extracurricular activities. We know that children who are actively engaged in doing good things are happier, healthier, and more accomplished individuals. We emphasize loving our neighbors and showing good sportsmanship on and off the field and in all our endeavors.
Sports we Offer
We are happy to be able to offer our sixth through eighth grade students the opportunity to participate in inter-scholastic sports. Bethlehem is a member of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) and the Mid-Columbia League.
We offer various sports throughout the school year according to the season:
Am I Eligible to Play?
In order to participate in our athletics programs, a student must be officially enrolled in Bethlehem Lutheran School and attend classes on at least a half-time basis. Some of the eligibility requirements for participation in BLS sports programs are listed below. For more detailed information, please see the student handbook found in the Quick Links on the Home page.
- Students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and have passing grades in core subjects. Core subjects are: Christian studies, math, literature, science, social studies, spelling, physical education, writing/grammar, and Spanish.
- Students must pay sports fees prior to the first practice.
- Students must pass a physical examination by a doctor and provide confirmation of the examination prior to beginning practice. Students must submit a physician-signed physical form and a parental permission form prior to beginning sports practice or participation. One physical examination is valid for the whole school year.
