Philosophy of Athletics

It is the goal of the athletic department to fear and honor God. The Academy recognizes that God has given certain physical and mental abilities that can be used in the area of athletics.

It is the philosophy that athletics at Hawthorne Christian Academy be an opportunity to demonstrate God-given abilities in a God-honoring way. Jesus Christ is the main focal point both on and off the playing field.

Values such as fair play, good sportsmanship, perseverance, initiative, and striving for excellence are encouraged and sought. Leadership aims at developing the individual and group physically, mentally, and spiritually through the medium of athletics. The individual and the group are equally important and vital to each other. Principles taught are those which will help each student athlete in life.
