“All for Christ and His Kingdom”

School and Athletic Missions Complement Each Other

Our young people learn a Christian world and life view which prepares them academically, socially, emotionally and physically to live out their faith as servant leaders in every area of society. The value of athletic competition relates directly to the fulfillment of our mission.

Athletics provide an opportunity to grow in the manifestation of godly character as the student-athlete faces situations within the team and within competition that are representative of situations to be faced in life. Each individual team member, from the starter to the team manager, will be challenged in numerous areas over the course of a season. Challenges of selflessness, diligence, self-control, patience, courage, perseverance, humility and submission that are experienced in athletics, translate directly to real life during and after high school. As any good coach will tell you, one of the keys to success on the athletic field is a solid game plan. God’s game plan, His Word, is as good as you can get!

Athletics is a Privilege

Involvement in athletics is a privilege – a privilege offered by the governing board to our school and a privilege to participate in by our students. As a member of an athletic team, each student-athlete will have achieved a position of accomplishment, honor and responsibility. Our student-athletes are highly visible in the school community, local community and cities around the state as they travel and compete. Faculty, staff and students alike are all challenged to a high level of conduct and responsibility as members of the Pusch Ridge family but student athletes are challenged to an even higher standard with greater expectations for conduct, performance and commitment as ambassadors of Christ on the court or field of play.


Notice also that members of our athletic teams are not known as just “athletes”, but as student-athletes. Academics have a priority over athletics with each student athlete required to maintain specific academic standards to remain an active member of any team.

Discipleship Coaching

We are very proud of the men and women who serve as coaches for our middle school and high school student-athletes. These talented and experienced adults realize the importance of the mentoring relationship, which needs to exist between a coach and the student athlete. The student athlete is more important than athletics.
