The Junior Vikings Athletic Programs exist to aid young athletes in developing their age appropriate physical, emotional, and intellectual athletic abilities in a Christian environment.
The Junior Vikings Athletic (JVA) Program will offer an outstanding learning experience for young athletes. In a safe and fun environment, the JVA Program will help to build the confidence and skills necessary for young athletes to continue to grow and develop.
The JVA Programs draw direction from the leadership of Wisconsin Lutheran High School. The JVA Director will guide philosophies, programming, and direction for all offerings.
Coach staff selection, training, and development will be overseen by the JVA Director. Background checks, first aid and concussion training, along with development in their sport specific area, will also be overseen by the JVA Director.
