Welcome to Middle School Athletics
Athletics at VCS is a vital part of the life of our school. A large percentage
of our Middle School student body will tryout and compete in athletics
this year. One distinctive that sets athletics at VCS apart from other
schools is the fact that we believe Jesus Christ is the foundation on
which we build our teams. The intensity and the investment that we use
in athletics is an intimate platform in which to discover who we are as
individuals and who we are in relationship to Jesus Christ. Village Christian
School believes the athletic program serves as an important part of the
educational experiences. Realizing that athletics is only one part of
the total educational experience offered by the school, athletics must
be kept in balance with the rest of the school program.
At VCMS, we also ask our athletes to compete to the best of their abilities,
defining success as, knowing they did their best to maximize their ability.
We model our athletic philosophy on 1 Corinthians 9:24, “…run
in such a way as to win the prize.” Our athletes at VCS will be
prepared to compete in a way to “win the race.” We are a competitive
MS program, which means not everyone who tries out makes the team. Yet,
winning at all costs is not the goal: our goal is to hire coaches who
are Godly role models, who demonstrate good sportsmanship, and who strive
to instill Christian values in all areas of life, while always striving
for competitive excellence.
The journey that ensues in athletics teaches us how to win, how to lose,
how to live, how to engage in life in a way that is meaningful, and finally,
how to strive to be what it is that Jesus has called us and created us to be.
Welcome to middle school athletics and “Go Crusaders!”
Under His Mercy,
