We Are Knights
The mission of our athletics department is to use the medium of sport to teach the values and virtues of passion, commitment, and integrity for the purpose of modeling a walk with Christ. We will use the analogue of adverse and successful situations common in the arena of athletics to reveal the character of Christ and ultimately provide the skill sets necessary for our student-athletes to pursue their calling. Our culture of unified coaches mean that our many athletes who participate in multiple sports hear consistent, strong, and well-defined communication so that the culture grows in rich soil.

Athletics Core Values
CULTURE OF NOTICEABLE PASSION – Passion is a gift from God that we use to pursue our gifts and calling. Together as coaches, we will cultivate an environment to ignite passion. Passion is defined as “strong; barely controllable”. This is reflective and noticeable as it is manifested outwardly. Yet, passion is also infectious. Our coaches will come to practice, games and events full of passion and the by-product of that will be a fun and exciting environment in which, our athletes will be driven to pursue their passion and calling.
CULTURE OF NOTICEABLE COMMITMENT – Our passion will be directed and focused and that by-product will be commitment to our coaches athletes, parents, fellow coaches, school and process. Each time we approach the field, the pitch, the court or the mat, our coaches disciplined approach to commitment will be a shining light that is noticeable to our athletes and be a model of success for our to prepare and execute.
CULTURE OF NOTICEABLE INTEGRITY – With the fuel of passion that manifests itself into focused commitment, we will endeavor to live by a calling of truth, honesty and virtue. We as coaches will set the tone for our athletes so that as we navigate the waters of success and adversity, trials and tribulations, our athletes, parents and community can rely on us to do the right thing constantly. We know that it starts with us, the top, and then washes over our athletes.
