ATHLETICS AT MOUNTAINVIEW
Warmest greetings from the Athletic Department at Mountainview Christian School. Thanks for visiting our web page. I hope you enjoy your time browsing what we have to offer.
The purpose of the Mountainview athletic program is to provide a setting in which our student athletes can glorify God through the development of personal character, sportsmanship, self discipline and Christ-like attitudes. Our students-athletes are encouraged to do their best and, in victory or defeat, demonstrate both grace and dignity.
Athletics at Mountainview is truly a blessing to students, parents, volunteers and our community. We continue to strive to honor Christ on and off the field, and in every competition. We believe the life skills and character learned in athletics helps provide students with another necessary tool needed to live fruitful and victorious Christian lives.
We appreciate your support of Mountainview athletics. We hope your involvement as a player, parent or fan will be a blessing. Please continue to pray that God will be glorified in the competition of all our athletic teams.
What We Offer
Basketball is probably the most popular of the sports we offer, and our games regularly draw big crowds from the school community. Both our boys’ and girls’ varsity teams have a tradition of success, and both are currently conference champions of IISSAC.
Boys’ JV and JV-B
Our JV boys’ teams compete against local Indonesian schools in friendly games and occasionally in tournaments either at our school or at other venues.
Our Varsity boys’ team competes against local Indonesian school and club teams. They also compete in local and regional tournaments. The Varsity boys are currently the IISSAC basketball champions for the third straight year.
Our JV girls’ teams compete against local Indonesian schools in friendly games and occasionally in tournaments either at our school or at other venues.
Our Varsity girls’ team competes against local Indonesian school and club teams. They also compete in local and regional tournaments. The Varsity girls are currently the IISSAC basketball champions for the second time in three years.
Soccer is our most popular sport in terms of participation. We regularly have enough players to field JV and varsity boys’ and girls’ teams. We compete annually in the IISSAC soccer tournament and have had success with our varsity boys winning in 2005.
The difficulty we face getting local games for the girls’ soccer teams makes volleyball an attractive alternative. We do not offer boys’ volleyball.
Swimming is something fairly new to our school. With the creation of IISSAC, we have the opportunity to travel annually to Surabaya International School for the swim meet. Our school has experienced moderate success.
We offer various intramural tournaments throughout the year such as 3-on-3 basketball and indoor soccer.
