Coaches and athletes are role models, regardless of the debate over whether they should be. It is an undeniable fact that people at high levels of athletics are admired by others, especially young people. This is a responsibility our Warrior athletes will not run from; rather they will embrace it.
Every athlete in the Warrior soccer program will be acutely aware that their actions will have a tremendous impact on the lives of people around them. As role models, there are certain values and character traits athletes and coaches should demonstrate and possess. Among these are a positive attitude, sportsmanship, competitiveness, team concept, a good work ethic, and an understanding of what success is. Our motivating factor comes from the Apostle Paul when he writes: 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.
These words are the things more than offenses and defenses that will be stressed in our program. With Christ at the center, these are the things that are essential to achievement in athletics and in life.
