Philosophy of the Athletics Program
The Trinity Athletics Program is guided by a commitment to excellence embodied in a set of Christ-like core values. The core values are Integrity, Camaraderie, and Victory. It is imperative that these three elements are prioritized as integral parts of our athletics department. We are to have integrity while competing so that we may be “above reproach” in all things as believers (Colossians 1:22). We are to have camaraderie as we fellowship with all believers (Acts 2:42), and athletes are to strive for victory in the literal sense of working towards a goal in competition while realizing that one is truly victorious when they prepare and play to the best their ability in such a way that honors and glorifies the Lord (1 Corinthians 10:31).
It is the responsibility of the coaches to provide an atmosphere where these core values can be put into practice. These values must be evident in the manner in which games and practices are conducted as well as emphasized by implementing them into team cheers before and after practices and games. This will be Trinity’s team cheer for all sports: “Integrity! Camaraderie! Victory! Trinity!”
