Denton Calvary Athletics Philosophy

Calvary athletics helps to fulfill the mission of the school by teaching the Christian way of competing expressed through our core vision in athletics:

  •      - Play for God’s glory
  •      - Be leaders on campus and in our community
  •      - Have fun, play smart, play hard
  •      - Overcome adversity with Christ likeness
  •      - Relentlessly pursue righteousness
  •      - Develop a love and desire to please God
  •      - Work hard
  •      - Serve others
  •      - Respect authority
  •  

The Calvary Athletic Department acknowledges that God is the priority in our school, followed by family, academics, and finally athletics.  When this order is followed, it will result in student-athletes who are balanced spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Since Calvary athletes are representatives of their team, their school, their community and more importantly, God, Calvary athletics is committed to developing each individual's character and self–esteem.  In addition, a proper perspective on winning and losing consistent with glorifying God is maintained.  Calvary athletes will be humble in victory, and courageous in defeat.  Winning is defined as reaching the maximum potential by giving great effort as an individual, and as a team.
Individually, the DCA athletic department wants the athletes to have the mindset of constant improvement of their game and be mentally tough.  As a result, maximum effort is given to training and preparation that leads to as much individual accomplishment as God will allow.

Calvary Athletics strives for excellence through programs that are well respected and considered among peers and college coaches as one of the best in TAPPS.
