Athletics

Mission

To give each student-athlete the opportunity to grow in Christian Character

That the world would see Christ in us as we compete

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

That our athletes learn a godly concept of success

While winning the contest is the object of planning and preparation on the part of both coach and athlete, it must not be the sole measure of success. Developing the character of Christ, which are being built into the athlete, must be the ultimate criteria on whether or not we are truly successful.

The criteria for determining the growth of our student-athletes will be seen in the qualities they are developing in their lives

Character is often shaped through athletic competition, and it will carry over into all other areas of life to include qualities such as respect for others, perseverance, self-discipline, self-control, teamwork, and humility.
