体育运动 at Eastern Christian School
The Eastern Christian athletic program exists to glorify God by developing Christian character and excellence in its student athletes through life transforming experiences and opportunities.
All ECS athletes are expected to uphold the following six pillars for athletic success with the support of the Athletic Director, 教练和家长:
荣耀神… the most important measure of our success. (歌罗西书3:17a) “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it in the name of the Lord Jesus… ”
Exemplify Christian character态度……, 行为, 和体育精神, exhibiting a God-honoring lifestyle while abstaining from drugs, 酒精, 和烟草. (哥林多前书6:19b-20) “…You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body”
追求卓越…exhibit a heart for hard work, passion, enthusiasm and energy in the classroom and on the field. (歌罗西书3:23) “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
作为一个整体竞争…what is best for the team always comes first. (腓立比书2:4) “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
为赢得比赛而奔跑…compete at the highest possible level. (哥林多前书9:24b) “…run in such a way as to get the prize
提交…showing up and honoring your word is the norm. (约翰一书2:5b) “But whoever keeps his word…by this we may know that we are in Him.”
At Eastern Christian 高中 a diverse athletic program enables students so inclined to develop, enhance and use their God-given physical and mental gifts.
Opportunities are available for both individual and team participation. 体育运动 offer a unique and effective environment in which to learn some of the Christian life’s most valued lessons. These can include sacrifice, 勤奋, 毅力, 尊重, and putting the good of the group ahead of what is good for oneself.
在理想的情况下, every student would be involved in the athletic program and experience all that competitive sports have to offer. Realistically, however, not all students are equally gifted and/or interested in this pursuit. 另外, space on most teams should be limited to provide students who are most qualified the adequate opportunity and attention needed to fully realize their potential.
