Athletics are an integral part of a well-rounded education and a valuable component to help students make an impact for Christ.  The purpose of our athletic program is to foster physical development and athletic skills while teaching values such as self-discipline, teamwork, servant leadership, commitment, and a desire to do one’s best.  Our teams participate in a way that honors God and conveys a positive witness to those around us.

Philosophy of Winning – At ECS, we strive for excellence in all we do, including athletics; but, the win-loss record is not the primary measure of excellence.  Winning means more than outscoring the opponent.  It means doing everything in a way that honors the Lord and doing everything heartily, as unto the Lord (Colossians 3:23).  With the humility that comes through putting Christ first, we strive to win without arrogance.  We can be gracious in defeat and modest in victory.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord.
Colossians 3:23
