The most important goal of the Lakeside Athletics program is to help student athletes develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. During practice and athletic competition, opportunities arise for the athletes to apply God’s Word and His principles to their lives. Dedicated Christian coaches help the athletes relate the victories, hard work, and defeats experienced on the playing field to their daily walk with Christ. Coaches encourage players to do their very best for God’s glory. Lakeside Athletics also uses discipline and physical training to develop important values in the athletes’ lives. The core values taught to participants include commitment, unity, responsibility, discipline, respect, and integrity.
Lakeside holds athletic membership with the Florida High School Athletics Association (FHSAA) and the Sunshine State Athletic Conference (SSAC).
