HCA Athletic Philosophy
Heritage Christian Academy athletics plays an integral part in our student’s total education experience. The athletic program is designed to create success for our student athletes on and off the field. Student athletes will benefit from the development of physical fitness, leadership, teamwork, self-discipline and integrity. It is our desire to see each student athlete express saving faith in Jesus Christ and to demonstrate a growing character formed in His likeness. The following lists the five key focus areas for HCA Athletics:
• The athletic program exists to glorify God
• The first concern is the heart of the student athlete
• The program’s success will be measured on the character and conduct of the student athtletes, coaches and fans
• We will do our best, as unto the Lord
•We will actively seek to share the good news of Christ
