Philosophy

Participating in athletics is an important part of a student's school experience. It helps students to learn cooperation, teamwork, and develops character. Through a student athlete's participation, they will be challenged to grow and develop in ability, confidence, and social interaction. 

We emphasize Christian character and expect our athletes to be a witness on and off the campus. We desire our students to see athletic participation as a means to develop and grow as part of a team effort and not for self-glorification. The success of our program must be measured by the quality of the young people that we produce. It is not our win-loss record. Every team that plays, plays to win; however, winning is not our only goal.

Schedule an Educational Success Consultation today to visit with our principal, Adrienne Gurney, and discuss the opportunties available for your student at St. John's Waltz.

Our Purpose:

One of the major goals of the athletic program at St. John's is to help students learn to apply Christian principles to their lives. Our purposes include the following:

  • Dealing with success, as well as frustrations and failures, understanding teamwork, and maintaining a proper Christian attitude in sports and in daily life.
  • Developing technically correct physical skills, physical conditioning, and commitment to team concepts, encouragement of others, self-discipline, priority setting, and perseverance.
  • Helping children develop their God-given talents and abilities, so that they may use them to the glory and honor of God and to the benefit of others.
  • Developing a Christian character which will make up our leaders in the school, church, community, and the world at large.

Athletic Guidelines:

  • Remember that at all times you are playing because of, and for, your Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has blessed you with a healthy body that is to be used for His glory.
  • Keep your uniform clean and neat. You are responsible for it during the season in which you are participating. Wear it with pride Wildcat.
  • Always feel free to talk to your coach about any problems you might have. Doing so makes misunderstandings less likely to occur - a safe rule is to recall the 8th Commandment to put the best construction on everything.
  • Athletes must be in attendance on the day of a game or practice at least half day in order to be eligible to participate in that day's practice or game. Excused absences (e.g. funerals, doctor's appointments, and family emergencies) are an exception.
  • If a student quits a team, he/she will not be able to participate in athletics the rest of the school year. This policy does allow students a one week trial practice period. Parents, also, can remove their child from a team after discussion with the coach and/or athletic director. However, award qualification for participating in a sport requires the athlete to have finished the season in good standing.
