Wilmington Christian believes that the physical well-being of our students is as important as their intellectual development and that many important lessons are taught through an athletic experience. I Timothy 4:8 says,”For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. Athletics and physical education are a fundamental part of the total curriculum at Wilmington Christian and are taught and practiced with a biblical perspective in our school day.
Beginning in Preschool, students are exposed to developmentally appropriate physical activities that refine movement and motor skills. The exercises also highlight the importance of character, such as taking turns, playing by the rules and showing good sportsmanship towards fellow classmates.
Our coaches and teachers have to set the standard: to help our student athletes become christian men and women who reach their fullest potential intellectually, emotionally and physically. We offer our athletes, who vary in their interest and ability, quality programs that appropriately challenge to develop leadership, team work, confidence, and sportsmanship through winning and losing.
