Athletics - Philosophy of Athletics
The philosophy of athletics at Loudonville Christian School is that we should be Christ-honoring in all that we do. As God has blessed each individual with different skills and abilities, we are to use these to be a witness and a testimony to all who see us. We are to give our best to God both on the field of competition as well as at practice. Our emphasis is to see spiritual growth in both the players and coaches as well to encourage good sportsmanship from the fans at the games. This growth does not come naturally, but must be cultivated by the Holy Spirit and watered and nurtured by spiritual leaders such as coaches, teachers, parents and peers.
The athletic program should serve as a conduit through which students can grow physically, intellectually, as well as spiritually. Team leadership, team unity and a sense of team pride are encouraged and sought after as well.
Although athletic participation at Loudonville Christian School is not required, it is highly encouraged. Through athletics, students to learn social skills, such as getting along with each other, working together for the greater good of the team, problem solving, and learning to work and function while under stressful situations or conditions. Athletic participation provides opportunities to exhibit sportsmanship and Christian conduct. It encourages hard work and perseverance. It allows the students to strive and fail, but provides opportunities to start again and achieve success. It also provides opportunities for handling success in a Christ-honoring way.
The goals and outcomes that are inherent in athletics provide for real-life learning that is necessary for functioning in life. Athletics is one avenue at Loudonville Christian School that maximizes the gifts and abilities of the athletes and prepares each to be salt and light in the world.
