Athletics

 Grace Baptist Christian School Crusader Sports


The purpose of the Grace Baptist Christian School athletics program is to produce well-rounded young men and women who exhibit outstanding Christian character on and off the field. We hold to the conviction and core belief that the Christian character of our student athletes comes first and that Christ-like character isnít left on the bench but carries over into every endeavor of life.


GBCS athletes are encouraged to do their best, function as part of a team and develop their God-given abilities for His glory. Regardless of whether we win or lose, GBCS teams strive to demonstrate respect and dignity. While the prospect of continuing to play sports after high school at the collegiate level is a high and honorable goal the highest aim for the GBCS athletic program is to produce more than just great athletes but more importantly great Christians.


Intramurals

The GBCS Athletic Program uses its Summer Sports Program as a building block in youth skill development for young people of all age levels playing intramural sports. Its focus is to maintain the increased time to reinforce their particular skill and adjust to the complete team at each age level. There is a strong emphasis on the fundamentals. These strategies allow each athlete to increase his or her improvement ratio rapidly. The sports included in the Summer Sports intramural program are boys basketball and girls volleyball. The program is held every Sunday evening at 6:00 PM during the months of June and July following the 5:00 PM Sunday evening service of the Grace Baptist Church.
