In the Valor Athletics culture, we define coaching excellence as the ability to serve, inspire, and connect with others.
Success in achieving core values and outcomes are by-products of our coaches’ ability to do those three things - serve, inspire, and connect with people. We have designed a blueprint for our coaches to use in their efforts to invest in our student-athletes and their families on and off the playing field.
Our coaches serve our respective athletic communities by providing excellent structure and communication
Our coaches inspire our athletes through appropriate challenges and consistent development of their skills
Our coaches connect with our athletes and build positive, lifelong relationships and build a high level of trust.
Encouraged. Supported. Loved.
All of our teams engage in a retreat experience and service projects. Athletes will learn how to integrate their faith into their sport in deep and meaningful ways through our Sport As Worship program. Our coaches will meet with each player individually to develop mentoring relationships so all players will testify that they are loved, encouraged and supported in their athletic journey. Lastly, we build intentional margin into our schedules for the sake of academic primacy and families to maintain their connection at home.
Integrating Sports and Faith
More than 75 percent of Valor students participate in 25 cut and non-cut sports, and our entire community loves to cheer them on — whether for a regular season game or a state championship.
Our goal is not merely to produce student athletes. It is to produce young men and women of character who see their worth in light of God’s love for them and call on their lives in service to Him. That is why we focus on integrating faith into our sports program. We view our sports as a way to build character and as a way to worship the King.
