Heritage Athletics

The purpose of the athletic program is to use the tool of athletic competition to encourage students in developing a Christ-like attitude and lifestyle. With the expectation that our student athletes will exhibit Christian character on and off campus, we desire for their athletic participation to teach them the value of team effort above self-glorification. The success of our program must be measured by the quality of the young people that we produce and not just our win-loss record. Every team that plays, plays to win; however, winning is not our primary goal. It is our goal to use sports for the glory of God and, in doing so, to train student athletes with the proper perspective on these great activities. Listed below are several key principles that will guide our Athletic Department at HCA: 
  • In keeping with HCA’s overall vision, Athletics is another opportunity to develop the student physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually. (Luke 2:52) 
  • We will seek to draw attention to God by directing the fruit of the Spirit in a competitive atmosphere, thus showing the character of Christ. (Colossians 3:10-17) 
  • We will teach students to win and lose with dignity, maturity, and grace. (Colossians 1:28) 
  • We will teach the students to set and achieve goals, to respond properly to authority, to keep composure under pressure, to learn self-discipline – lessons that are effectively learned on the field of competition. (Galatians 5:22-26) 
  • We will seek excellence in everything to which we commit. (2 Corinthians 4:7)
