Philosophy of Interscholastic Competition


At Community Christian School we seek to develop and demonstrate individual and team excellence in competitive athletics, while reaching our community for Christ.

Coaching Philosophy

The philosophy of the Community Christian School athletic program is put in to action by our coaches who work to prepare our athletes and teams to be spiritually, physically, and mentally fit. As coaches, the objective is to keep our teams Christ-centered as they train to play the game to the best of their ability and strive for excellence by competing well and playing to win.

Through intentional teaching, CCS coaches show our athletes how to embrace challenges, be gracious competitors, win with humility, handle defeat with dignity, advocate for their sport, and be positive Christian role models.

Coaching Principles

  1. Focus on Building a healthy relational environment
    Because relationships matter to God; they matter to us
  2. Focus upon the inside person over the outside person (win the heart).
    If we win player’s hearts, they will follow us wherever we lead them.
  3. Focus on academic success and good citizenship
    We will keep our priorities clear
  4. Focus upon the long term over the short term.
    We will reap what we sow.
  5. Focus upon the team over the individual; power is in selflessness.
    Selflessness builds; selfishness destroys.
  6. Focus on the developing over the strong; protect those who are hurting.
    We really need each other; everyone is important.
  7. Love is the cornerstone. Love the game, our teammates, and each other.
    Love can conquer hate, but hate cannot conquer love.
