East Lake Academy, Chicago's Premiere Private Catholic School, Offers Athletics Opportunities
Administration and LCCC Participation
East Lake Academy is a Lake County Catholic Conference participant, which means sports teams will play teams from other catholic schools in the LCCC. These include St. Joseph's, Home Run Kids, Lake Forest County Day School, Our Lady of Humility, and Anastasia. The athletics department is administered by teachers and parent volunteers.
East Lake Academy strives to offer a positive environment for students who are excited about athletics. Its athletic programs promote Christian values in sportsmanship and competition. Coaches and parent volunteers work together to help students develop a strong sense of self-confidence as they learn to lead others, persevere in tough times, and commit to helping their teammates. The school works to help develop a healthy love of sports and a lifestyle that includes frequent exercise.
As a result of its mission, East Lake Academy provides students with an opportunity to participate in numerous sports:
● Cross Country – Cross Country is long-distance running. East Lake Academy's team is co-ed, meaning both boys and girls participate on the same teams. Cross Country meets occur during September and October and children in 5th through 8th grades are encouraged to participate. Practices occur each week.
● Basketball – Basketball practices and games take place from October through February. There are boys' and girls' teams for 5th through 8th grades, and there is an instructional league for 4th graders interested in joining the team in later years, too. Practices occur each week.
● Track & Field – Track & Field is a very popular sport at East Lake Academy. The co-ed team consists of boys and girls in 5th through 8th grade, and they meet weekly to practice and participate in meets through the months of April and May. Track & Field includes short-distance racing and other events that involve throwing and jumping.
