Athletics Program

Our philosophy of coaching and athletics is to encourage and guide our athletes to exemplify Christ in whatever they do, and to do everything with all their might.  (I Corinthians 10:31; Philippians 1:21; Ecclesiastes 9:10)

 

Our desire is that each athlete would possess and demonstrate Christ-like character qualities, expressing them openly through the medium of athletics.  Our aim is to build eternal values in our athletes, thereby stressing attitudes and actions that are relative to the principles of God’s Word. 

Our purpose/goal is to develop the physical skills of the athlete, as well as the spiritual side, so that the total person may be developed and controlled by the Spirit of God.  (I Thessalonians 5:23)

Everything we do, including athletics, is for the purpose of glorifying Christ.

 

Our Athletic Objectives:

  • To bring glory to God and be witnesses for Him on the athletic field/court.
     
  • To enhance and develop the talents with which God has blessed each individual athlete.
     
  • To enhance and develop the positive attributes of sportsmanship.

       Self Discipline

       Respect for self and opposition

       Respect for coaches and officials

       An awareness of representation of MRCA and the beliefs of the school

  • To strive for the pursuit of excellence on and off the field.
