Athletics Overview

“Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” – Colossians 3:17 At Firm Foundation Christian School we have a mission to assist families in developing today’s youth into Christian leaders serving in the home, church and community by providing an education emphasizing academic excellence using a Biblical curriculum. We train each student athlete in a Christ-centered environment expecting each student-athlete and team compete in a manner that honors God, our school, our teammates, and our community.Participating in extra-curricular athletics is a privilege, not a right. We believe that many of life’s lessons are demonstrated through sport, and athletic competition allows students to develop and demonstrate Christ-like attitudes and behaviors in various situations. We expect our athletes to pursue a standard of excellence with character and integrity at all times, on and off the field or court.FFCS values teamwork. Our teams have adopted the C.A.S.H. model: Character, Attitude, Skills, Habits. By developing individually and as a team in each of these areas, student-athletes will epitomize a Christ-like attitude on and off the field or court. Scripture reinforces this dedication to each other in John 13:35: “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”At FFCS we want to grow great young men and women by stressing the importance of developing the following character traits through athletics:Courage            Self-Control            Endurance            Courtesy              Compassion            Humility            Devotion            Mercy            Purity            Peace            Sacrifice
