Athletics -323 Lions
Each individual sport at TCS is developed in harmony with the other school programs. The head coach is responsible for providing a consistent and structured environment to ensure that the TCS philosophy of athletics is properly implemented into his or her coaching. All activities within an individual sports program should exemplify the school’s commitment to a Christ-like witness.
We believe all TCS athletes should be diligent in preparation, relentless in effort, respectful in actions, humble in spirit, and aggressive in pursuit of excellence, without regard to the score, opponent, or officials. As Christian athletes grow to display these characteristics, teams are successful, players are motivated, fans are supportive and enthusiastic, and very often non-believers are drawn to Christ.
Trinity Christian High School is a member of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) and competes as a 4A school.
Trinity Christian Junior/Senior High School provides competitive athletics in girls' volleyball, boys' and girls' basketball, football, track, tennis, golf, cross-country and cheerleading. Baseball is only available in high school.
We believe that the principles and lessons learned in the classroom, at home, and through the local church, can be put into practice through athletics. Because the arena of competition is surrounded with pressure and adversity, therefore, the athlete is tested, and their true character revealed. Consequently, the opportunity for character growth readily presents itself through athletic competition. Therefore, athletics at Trinity Christian Schools is considered an integral part of a student’s curriculum.
Our motto for TCS athletics is “Raising the Standard.” We believe Christians are commanded by Scripture to always do our best. As believers, we are not to waste the talent God has given us by giving anything less than total commitment, through participation and maximum effort. We also believe we should strive to be the best at what we do. Being the best at anything is a worthy and admirable goal of any Christian. Becoming the best may not always be the result of our efforts, but, doing our best must be!
Because of our commitment to excellence, coaches at TCS become one of the most important components of our athletic program. Coaches are responsible to model a Christ-like attitude and behavior. Coaches are both a participant and teacher at the same time.
In order to be considered an effective coach and role model, our coaches must be knowledgeable in their sport, prepared, motivating, and able to make adjustments during competition. In short, coaches have great responsibility and opportunity to mold young lives for Christ.
