At State Line Christian School, the athletics program was started as a way of furthering the education of the students. In the classroom, they can gain the knowledge that they will need in life, and by playing sports they will learn many practical applications for life. The main purpose of the athletics program is to train young men and women to be leaders, to help them learn teamwork, and to instill discipline. All of these are qualities that will help them in college, at work, and in their families.

For boys, the basketball program builds on itself from the early grades. The elementary teams play intramural basketball. Sixth graders are eligible to play on the junior high team with seventh and eight graders, and at this age they begin playing other schools both home and away. The school offers a junior varsity for the freshmen and sophomores, and a varsity team for the juniors and seniors.
Also for the boys, State Line offers a soccer program and a baseball team. Soccer starts as early as first grade, and has four teams – the elementary, junior high, junior varsity, and varsity. Baseball has only a varsity team, for which boys from seventh grade through their senior year are eligible. There is also a little league offered through Lewis Avenue Baptist Church for the upper elementary grades. Boys can also compete in an intramural indoor soccer league.
Girls can join cheerleading, which participates with the basketball and soccer teams. There are three different squads they can cheer on – junior high, junior varsity, and varsity. During the baseball season, intramural volleyball is offered to the girls.
