Athletics

Student Activities and Athletics are a vital resource for the training of young minds and hearts. These activities provide opportunities outside the classroom for students to practice and experience biblical principles taught at home and in the school. All students participating in student activities will be required to sign a participation code of conduct. We expect that through these school sponsored activities, our children will learn:

  • the benefits and proper disciplines of competition
  • the right rewards for hard work and preparation
  • how to submit and follow scriptural authority subjecting personal interests to those of the leader and the team
  • the benefits of working together in unity under leadership and the appropriate expression of individual talent for the benefit of the team
  • the value of camaraderie and the friendships that result
  • the value of experiencing both victory and defeat
  • how to celebrate or to express disappointment with Christ-like dignity (good sportsmanship), demonstrating honor and respect to coaches, parents, officials and other competitors
  • the benefits of experiencing new challenges
