At Westminster, we believe that athletics is something that God uses as a means of grace and a tool for discipleship in equipping our children in many ways…

Westminster athletics is a program designed as a holistic approach to educating our students. We obviously spend a great deal of our energy training the body but also desire to train the mind and the spirit. This vision and set of core values will allow our students to see the type of character traits that we want to inspire them to emulate. This sets the bar for our program in terms of the witness that we present to our community, our opponents, and to outsiders in general. Further these values give our coaches teaching opportunities with which to present their own stories of life challenges, successes, and failures so that the players can draw from that wealth of experience. Lastly we want to communicate these to our parents so that they have confidence in our program in that it is not just about winning but excellence in every aspect of their child’s educational experience in athletics.
As believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ we desire to exemplify and promote the character of Christ in how we practice and compete. To honor Him we embrace and aspire to embody the following core values and present ourselves to others as living testimonies worthy of the calling of Christ. We want them to run the race well and to finish strong. We desire to prepare the student for the path, not prepare the path for the student. Our Christian worldview is the foundation of these character building principles. Our coaches will seek to equip our students to embody these principles in victory and defeat.
