The purpose of the athletic program at Schaumburg Christian School is to provide students a setting to glorify God through the development and exercise of personal character, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and athletic ability. In victory or defeat, students are taught to demonstrate both grace and dignity, while representing and promoting the mission of Schaumburg Christian School.
Participating in athletics at SCS should enhance and solidify the spiritual foundation of our student-athletes. Student-athletes are encouraged to let their light shine before men. (Matthew 5:16) Coaches should claim as their primary responsibility the spiritual training of the young people involved in their sport.
Schoolwork should not be sacrificed due to athletic participation. Coaches guide our student-athletes to make sure the athletes are doing their schoolwork in a manner glorifying to God.
Getting in shape physically reveals profound truth about getting in shape spiritually. Athletes should receive new, different and sometimes deeper insight into the Word of God because of the training which coaches demand of them. Coaches should be continually educating themselves in all areas of athletics. Athletics plays a big role in much of today’s society. The emphasis heard most is the importance of winning. What does it mean to win or lose? At SCS our perspective of winning and losing is based on biblical principle.
