Athletics are an integral part of Cherokee Christian Schools, and exists not as just a venue for competition, but as a method to develop strong character and positive attitudes in our students. The primary purpose of the athletic program is to provide students a setting to glorify God through the development and exercise of personal character, sportsmanship, self-discipline and athletic ability, while equipping them through coaching with the necessary skills to be successful in each. Our philosophy is that we compete to win, but winning is not the most important part of competing. The Athletic Department strives to live out Philippians 1:27 which reads: “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel”. We strive at all times to be good ambassadors of Jesus Christ and by doing so we represent our school, our family and ourselves very well.
Student athletes are held accountable for their progress both on the field and in the classroom. We recognize that success on the field is inconsequential without success off the field. Warrior athletics unify our family, and serve to develop students spiritually, mentally, socially, academically and athletically. Competition on the playing field is where character is tested and refined; it is where what is learned in the classroom is defined. Cherokee Christian is a founding member of the GICAA.
