Matthew 28:19- Go therefore and make disciples…

Sports provide excellent opportunities for discipleship as students learn important life lessons on leadership, self-discipline, responsibility, perseverance, good sportsmanship, and teamwork.  We use athletics to prepare students for life as Christian leaders who choose character, wisdom, and integrity, while striving to follow God’s will for their lives.

Total character development of our students is the goal.  Promoting honesty, humility, loyalty, respect, and unity are priority.  These traits are foundational in building a “TEAM”.  This is what Warrior-Spirit is all about!


  • Teach the Principles of Winning
  • Exemplify Christian Values and Morals
  • Achieve Maximum Physical, Moral and Spiritual Character Development

Our Coaches:

  • Foster opportunities for discipleship
  • Build relationships with players and parents

  • Teach the team concept, coupled with strong competition
  • Present teams prepared to play
  • Do all these things with the primary goal of bringing honor to the Lord Jesus
