The Athletic Director, coaches, and other members of the department will work to provide opportunities and development of student-athletes in these areas:


  • Provide opportunities for spiritual growth through team prayer, devotions, and Bible study.
  • Facilitate opportunities for students to use God-given talents and display Christian values.
  • Enable coaches and players the chance to witness for Jesus Christ by word and action.
  • Build Christian relationships with teammates and opponents.


  • Offer an environment to develop fundamental physical skills through practice and competition.
  • Cultivate decision-making skills.
  • Teach athletes to accept responsibilities and decisions.
  • Maintain and improve academic standing while in structure of a season.


  • Display sportsmanship by actions regardless of situation.
  • Show self-control and poise in the face of adversity.
  • Allow maturation through intense emotional situations of competitive sports.


  • Provides an opportunity for students to learn from coaches the elements of leadership.
