Philosophy

Emmanuel Christian School strives to develop young people in mind, body and spirit. The ECS athletic program realizes that it has a pivotal role in this process. Athletes and coaches are encouraged to strive for Christ-likeness in all of their activities including training and competition. Athletic training and competition provide numerous opportunities to instill the practice of biblical principles, such as subjecting oneself to authority, working together as members of a team, and controlling the impulses that often arise in the heat of competition. Participation in athletics at Emmanuel Christian School is open to all students contingent upon their meeting the criteria of academics, character, and athletic skill. All teams at ECS are expected to do their best in the true spirit of Christ-centered competition.
