The mission of Strong Rock Christian School is to glorify God and partner with families in educating and inspiring their children to impact the world for Jesus Christ – The Strong Rock. In order to protect our mission and develop a holistic approach to each student, we focus on the four pillars of academics, fine arts, missions and athletics.
The athletic pillar strengthens both the character and athleticism of each student athlete by producing effective outcomes (technical skills, tactical sport IQ and physical development) and by creating exceptional experiences (spiritual growth, social skills and leadership opportunities).
Through participation in team and individual sports, students learn not only athletic skills necessary to successfully compete, but also fundamental life skills that will remain with them throughout their lives. Athletics assist in creating challenging goals to improve the mind, body and team or sport while exploring our created purpose behind relationships with the soul, the family and the world.
We believe that every student has the potential to positively contribute to the success of any team or event and encourage students to explore the many athletic offerings at Strong Rock Christian School. Our elementary athletics program emphasizes a Long Term Athletic Developmental (LTAD) framework to ensure that training, competition and recovery schedules are appropriate for an athlete at each specific stage of their growth and development.
It is the role of the athletic department to make policies and rules that govern the spirit of competition for the school. These rules need a broad base of community support, which is achieved only through communication with the athlete, parent and coach. We hope to accomplish this objective through this handbook for students and parents. We ask that you read this handbook thoroughly with your student athlete(s), and sign and return the acknowledgement which is located at the end of this handbook.
