Athletics at Master's

The athletic department at The Master’s School is committed to serving God through athletics. Our desire is that you will have an enjoyable experience, improve your skills, foster positive character traits, and maintain high moral standards as you participate on an athletic team. All students are welcome to play on an athletic team. Our goal is to find a place for each interested student that will match with his or her gifts and interests.  

-Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-- think about such things.

Our Philosophy

The Master's School athletic program is a vehicle by which the goals and objectives in the school's Statement of Mission and Purpose can be fulfilled. The athletic and physical education departments work together to address the physical developmental needs of students as they attend The Master's School. Our athletic department attempts to create an environment in which student athletes have an opportunity to develop educational and spiritual values. Included are intellectual, spiritual, social, moral, emotional, cultural, vocational, and physical aspects of human development. Building character through sportsmanship includes loyalty, cooperation, team work, and spiritual advancement.

The Master's School athlete should desire to achieve maximum potential as well as excellence in attitude and performance. The goal is to produce maximum efficiency on a consistent basis in athletic performance and Christian testimony. (I Thessalonians 5:23)

Physical fitness, whether in competition or leisure, promotes mental preparedness, emotional stability, and spiritual strength. Competition at the interscholastic level offers opportunity to display Christian character under different and sometimes difficult circumstances. The athletic program is part of the total educational program at The Master's School.

Our Objectives

  • To recognize that athletic ability is a gift from God and important to develop along with the academic, spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of the students.
  • To assist students in defining personal values and understanding the importance of functioning within the bounds of high moral standards as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
  • To provide an opportunity for students to interact with each other and people outside of the school community as an effective Christian witness.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary for their sport.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to develop socially as they work together with their peers towards a common goal.
  • To encourage students to strive for excellence in their playing. God calls us to give all we can when we are doing something. Excellence is accomplished in many ways besides winning every game.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to participate in structured and controlled athletic competition.
  • To teach important life lessons such as: responsibility, encouragement, commitment, dedication, honest and fair play, seIf-confidence through God, and humility.
  • To encourage teams to give all the glory to God, for He is the source of their talent.
  • To teach students respect for authority. (Romans 13:1-8).
  • To guide athletes in the realization that being a part of an athletic team is a privilege, not a pedestal or a right.
