Trinity Christian School has become known around the state for excellence in athletics. During the past ten years, Trinity Christian School has produced:

One National Championship Team
Nine State Championship Teams
Seven State Championship Runner-up Teams

Results are important, but Trinity Christian School understands the real importance of athletics. Athletics teaches discipline, the importance of hard work, the setting and attaining of worthwhile goals, responding to authority, self-sacrifice, humility and composure under pressure. Through athletics, students learn to face adversity and challenges with a steady eye, a courageous spirit, and reliance upon the ultimate authority – Jesus Christ.

As part of its commitment to provide a complete educational experience for the student body, TCS provides diverse opportunities for athletic involvement for both men and women. The focus of all TCS sports activities is to cultivate character qualities that prepare the student for successful Christian living after graduation. Coaches are committed to modeling Christian virtues both on and off the athletic field.

TCS is a member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools, Division 3A (TAPPS). All schools compete within the guidelines and abide by rules established by TAPPS. For a complete schedule of all Trinity Christian School athletic events for the 2015-2016 year, you can review our full online Athletic Schedule in “Events” section.
