We understand how easy it is to get wrapped up in the spirit of competition, but it is our goal to teach students valuable life lessons through Christian athletics that help them grow in the spirit of God on and off the court.
- We teach our athletes to develop discipline. Faith will always be tested. By teaching children to develop self-discipline through athletics, they can transfer these skills when facing challenges in the real world.
- We teach our athletes the value of hard work. Life does not come easily. We encourage our student athletes to practice, to pray, and to always believe in their abilities. By building this strong foundation of hard work, they enter the real world with realistic expectations of what they can achieve by walking in faith and light with God.
- We teach our athletes respect. All of our staff, parents and coaches put in hours of work to help make Medina Christian Academy athletics possible. The relationship building that occurs in a team dynamic is another opportunity for growth as our student athletes interact with coaches and teammates.
- We teach our athletes humility. The MCA coaching staff works to incorporate teamwork, goal setting, and wise stewardship of each athlete’s gifts and talents in order to honor God. God is truly present in everything our students do and athletics is no exception.
“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it,” (Hebrews 12:11).
