TIPTON CHRISTIAN ACADEMY AHTLETICS
Be Builders // Be Excellent // Be Authentic // Be Visionary
with Student-Athletes at the core of everything we do
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."
