Athletics @ LCS


Welcome to the LCS athletics program - Home of the Lions. The athletics program at Lincoln Community School is designed to meet the needs of our students. The primary purpose of our athletics program is to provide a positive and caring environment which helps to prepare our students for success in life.

Student-athletes at LCS have the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports throughout the school year. They are encouraged to acquire and develop athletic skills, practice teamwork, learn discipline, leadership and sportsmanship, and most of all - have fun.

At Elementary School level, the focus is on participation and developing an interest in sports. In Middle and High School, students begin to compete and gain experience playing against other schools and clubs in Ghana and the wider West Africa region.

LCS’s athletic program is one of the largest and most diverse among international schools in Ghana.
