Be Builders // Be Excellent // Be Authentic // Be Visionary

with Student-Athletes at the core of everything we do

 

ATHLETIC MISSION

The mission of Tipton Christian Academy's Athletic Department is to produce positive, Christian student-athletes who honor and serve the Lord, be exemplifying character and integrity on and off the field.  It is our goal through athletics to equip athletes with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful models of Christ in our community.  


PHILOSOPHY OF ATHLETICS

At Tipton Christian Academy, our athletes and coaches will compete at their highest levels to glorify God.  Athletics offer us the opportunity to minister to others around us while also fostering the concepts of putting others before ourselves, and using our God-given talents to achieve great things.   Tipton Christian Academy believes that participation in athletics both as a player and a student spectator is an important part of the student's educational experience.  Such participation is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility to the school, the team, the student body, the community, and the student himself.  In both play and conduct, the student is representing all of these groups.  Such experiences enhance the knowledge, skill, and emotional patterns possessed by students, thereby making them better people and citizens.  Tipton Christian Academy Athletics should provide an opportunity for others outside the TCA community to visualize actions and principles found in God's word.  Tipton Christian Academy's Athletic program will be used as an opportunity to minister to the non-Christian community through exemplary actions, Christ-like attitudes, and a high level of athletic skills.  The challenge for our athletes, parents, and coaches is to adhere to the Colossians 3:17 mandate.  "And 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."

CORE VALUES
1. God - Use our God-given abilities to glorify Him in all aspects of athletics. 
2. Family - Build a family culture within our athletic department. 
3.Academics - Exemplify the concept of the student-athlete.
4. Community - Use our platform to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community.
5. Athlete - Compete at our highest levels while modeling Christ-like attitudes
 
OUR COACHES
The coach is the "living curriculum" for the student-athlete.  Coaches at Tipton Christian Academy are the most significant components of the athletic program.  They are both teachers and active participants.  They have the responsibility to model Christ-like behaviors and attitudes at all times. 
 
OUR ATHLETES
Tipton Christian Academy athletes should be diligent in preparation, give 100% at all times, demonstrate personal discipline, be respectful in all situations, maintain self-control, show humility, and aggressively pursue excellence regardless of the score, opponent, time, referee, or situation.  The ultimate and final responsibility rests upon the shoulders of the student-athlete, for it is the student-athlete who is accountable to his/her parents, coach, and the Lord.
 
OUR PARENTS
Parents of student-athletes have a responsibility to both their child and to the team.  Without strong, parental support the student-athlete will not be able to achieve his/her greatest potential and/or the team may suffer.  Parents are not coaches and learning to trust coaches is a key step to learning the value of the life lesson experiences athletics provide.  It is also important that parents honor the Lord when attending athletic events.
