I PURPOSE – GOAL
Athletics at BCS is an important aspect of the school’s educational program. Our philosophy is one of educating the whole individual. For this reason, BCS provides an athletic program that helps develop a student’s emotional, physical, social and spiritual health. Although academics are one of the major priorities at BCS, we feel an extracurricular athletic program is also helpful in developing the whole student.
Mentally a student is challenged in many ways including the learning of offensive and defensive plays, creative play making, team strategies and through other mentally stimulating exercises.
Emotionally a student will learn how to better handle stressful situations, how to better cope with losing and winning, and how a Christian controls and deals with his or her feelings.
Socially, the interaction with team members, opponents, coaches and fans helps the student athlete to learn how to work with, cooperate with and encourage all those involved. Team spirit and individual friendships are cultivated through participation in sports.
Spiritually the athletic program encourages strong spiritual character and qualities that will help the athletic be a better servant of our Lord. Reliance on the Lord for strength, safety and guidance along with the proper motives and attitudes toward all involved with the program. Our desire at BCS is that our athletes learn that everything that is done is to be done for the glory of God and with the whole heart.
In order to encourage the above goals and to provide for a well-organized, efficient and quality program the following guidelines have been established.
II. ATTITUDES AND CONDUCT
It will be expected that all athletes representing the school will show and display an attitude of Christ-likeness both on an off the playing area. This includes attitudes toward your own team members, coaches, opposing teams, fans and officials. All athletes are expected to be examples and therefore must show forth attitudes and conduct that are above reproach. Coaches reserve the right to suspend from play in practices and games if the coach feels that the player is not displaying an attitude of Christ-likeness in practices and games. In severe displays of poor attitude and unsportsmanlike conduct, the coaches and administration reserve the right to call for an athlete’s suspension from school.
Respect for officials and coaches must be displayed regardless of the decisions made during practices and games.
III. TEAM STEWARDSHIP
Each team member is expected to show utmost respect and care for both our property and facilities and that of the other school. Cleanliness of all facilities used is to be maintained.
All equipment is to be used only for it’s intended purpose. Uniforms distributed to the athletes are to be washed after each game (cleaning instructions should be followed). For any damage done to the uniforms (apart from their intended use) damage costs will be covered by the user.
Soccer and basketball teams will wear same colored socks as part of their uniforms.
