We designed our athletic program to inspire a lifetime of enjoyment in a variety of sports and fitness activities.
 
Physical education is vital if academic education is to flourish. We believe that athletics and physical training produce lifelong results in students—strengthening the body, mind, and character through discipline, skills acquisition, consistent practice, self-control, and teamwork. Our desire is to use the athletic experience as an opportunity to strengthen the Christian character by building strong mentoring relationships between athletes and coaches. 
 
PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Classes One through Five

 

Students in Class One through Five attend physical education classes two to five times per week, and many participate in extracurricular athletic programs through parent-organized and community teams. As God has given us bodies finely adapted for His service, He also gives us the responsibility to nourish, strengthen, and refine our bodies in physical education and competitive sports, and to train our bodies to be fit for future service to God. 

 

      

ATHLETICS

Classes Six through Eight

 

In Classes Six through Eight, students may participate in school-sponsored interscholastic sports teams, which compete in the TAPS and IAA leagues. The Providence athletic department is committed to glorifying God by pursuing excellence in all team sports by the shaping of our student-athlete’s character through the teaching and application of humility, integrity, discipline, hard work, commitment, obedience, and a healthy competitive spirit. The athletic program strives to be competitive, as competition provides a training ground for life in a challenging, competitive world.

 

Although winning is important, the program is committed to teach the proper motivation for excelling: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17. Additionally, the athletic program helps student-athletes understand that their self-worth is not based upon their performance. The Providence athletic program also seeks to develop athletes into spiritual leaders who will make a difference in a world that rejects Christ.

 

 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

COLOSSIANS 3:17

COACHES AND STAFF
 

Our Athletics coaches and staff are passionate about coaching, mentoring, and teaching students. At Providence, our coaches aim to use each practice and game as an opportunity for character building. We believe that athletics offers students the chance to put into practice many of the godly traits that mark the Christian faith, such as hard work, good sportsmanship, respect, integrity, and discipline.
