Youth Wolfpack

 

You could be a part of Western’s next State Champion!

Champions are made of Desire, Determination, and Hard Work. The Western Christian High School Junior Wolfpack program offers a variety of activities that students can participate in. These are awesome opportunities to get involved and try different sports, meet students from different schools, and to be challenged to be the best in a God centered environment!

Baseball
Junior Wolfpack baseball is a great way for boys to develop their fundamentals and love of the game.  The season runs from the end of May to early July.  There will be multiple practices and games each week.  Home games are played at the Hull city fields.  The boys are split into two teams.  7th-8th grade are in a league with surrounding area teams.  5th-6th grade is available for those who cannot play on their home town team.  8th graders will also have the opportunity to make the JV high school team depending on participation numbers throughout the entire baseball program.  Information flyers will be sent to all the schools in March.  Baseball is a great way to get out and enjoy God's creation and glorify Him.

  Boys Basketball
Your son is invited to participate in Youth Wolfpack Basketball.  This is for boys in grades 5-8.  Practices will begin in October and we will participate in 5-6 tournaments which run January through March.  Most practices will take place at Western Christian. The goals for our youth basketball program is to introduce the boys to proper fundamentals, work together as a team, develop lifelong friendships and play for the glory of God. Come and be a part of the tradition!!

 Girls Basketball
This opportunity is for all girls going into grade 5-8. This year approximately 56 girls are involved in this exciting program. Many coaches are parents of the girls involved and have expressed interest in coaching and mentoring the girls in a positive way. The season for Youth Wolfpack Basketball runs from mid-October through mid-January, and includes a weekly practice and participation in 5-6 tournaments. The goals for the program include working on the fundamentals of the game, while maintaining a positive attitude at all times, hopefully fostering a love and passion for playing basketball. The coaches are also encouraged to give each participant a specific goal or skill to work on throughout the season.

 Cross Country
Western Christian Junior High Cross Country is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and learn more about running.  A typical week for our Junior High XC team is one practice per week as a team, one meet, and three practices on your own.  The season starts the last week of August and runs through mid-October.  We have a lot of fun but we also work hard as we usually finish in the top three teams each meet we participate in.  The coach will send out the information in April and again in May.  If you would like to know more about Jr. High XC at Western contact Coach Lems by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

 Football
Youth Wolfpack Football is an established program for 7-8th graders from the area schools. Registration for the program happens in May, after letters have been sent out to area Christian schools. Registration includes a parent meeting, signing of consent forms, and fitting for equipment. About 50 students participated in the program in the past season. All coaches are volunteers, with practices starting in early August, games starting in early September, and final games of the season by the 3rd week in October. Both the 7th and 8th grade teams had six games in their schedule this past season. Western's Youth Football program is excited to be a part of the growing tradition of state champions at Western Christian!

 Softball
This program is open to all girls going into grades 5-8. Informative flyers are sent to area Christian schools and the same information is posted on Western's website. The season typically runs from May to early July, usually finished by the Fourth of July each summer. The younger Wolfpack softball teams scrimmage and play a couple games, the older teams enter 4-5 summer tournaments in area communities. The goal of the Youth Wolfpack Softball program is to build a foundation for fundamentals and a love for playing the sport. Parents and volunteer coaches emphasize using one's talents to glorify God and keeping God #1 in all areas of competition and life!

 

Volleyball
We send information out in early December. The opportunity to play AAU volleyball is for girls in grades 5-8. Practices start at the end of December and practice is held once a week at Western.  Tournaments are held on Saturdays and start late January and go through Mid-March.  We believe AAU is the building block for our success at the high school level.  The goal of our program is to enhance individual volleyball skills, meet new friends, and have fun!! At the end of the season there is a State AAU tournament in different locations.  5th is in Cedar Falls, 6th is in Marshalltown, 7th is in Ankeny, and 8th is in Indianola.  This is always a very exciting and anticipated event to conclude the AAU season!
