Physical Education - Sports
Saint Luke offers four areas for physical culture for students of all ages (and adults as well). All are located in secure areas and offer a variety of opportunities for healthy exercise.
Saint Luke's full gymnasium is utilized for physical education classes by the entire student body, PreSchool through Grade 8. The floor is striped for basketball, volleyball and pickleball. Hardwood maple floors like those in the Saint Luke gym offer the most shock absorption and are considered the safest courts.
Saint Luke Academy offers an interscholastic athletic program for students in Grades 3 through 8. Practice is after school, usually on the Saint Luke campus. Games take place after school (home or away) against opponents in the Chicago Northside Lutheran School League.
Extracurricular sports include: cross country, basketball and volleyball. The children also participate in the Lutheran School League bowling tournament and the Lutheran School League track meet in the spring.
The Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center Fitness Center offers strength-training equipment, PreSchool play equipment and a lateral climbing wall with hand/foothold paths for small children through adults.
On outdoor playlot with two climbing centers, one for small children and one for the older students, is located immediately west of the building. The playlot surface of cushioned recycled rubber is comfortable for the running and jumping that is the hallmark of any playground activity.
Outdoor terrace courts on the rooftop of Saint Luke Renaissance-Greenview Place, accessible by a bridge from the gym, are striped for pickleball, have basketball hoops and are a favorite for kickball play.
