Each week Field of Faith will share with you some words of encouragement and challenges in what we call a “Timeout.”
Let us first start off by sharing with you our mission.
Field of Faith’s Mission is called to coach the heart of the athlete, their families, and their community for Jesus. With this in mind we have some very critical roles and standards for our coaches, athletes and families.
Let’s start with the coach’s role.
To honor each athlete and to teach them to value hard work, to live pure, to lead with courage, and to honor Jesus in pursuit of the greater reward so that they will know what defines them as a person of eternal value.
Commitment to “Work Hard”
I will attend and be on time to workouts and practices.
I will perform to the best of my ability.
I will give a championship effort and poise.
Commitment to “Live Pure”
I will only put substances into my body that are legal and pure.
I will use the language of a gentleman or a lady.
I will help those who can’t and encourage the discouraged.
Commitment to “Lead with Courage”
I will have a positive attitude.
I will stay focused on the goals of the team and finish what I start.
I will challenge my teammates and hold them accountable to our commitment with patience and love.
Commitment to “Honor the King”
I am a Christian first and last and I wear the colors of the cross.
I will honor Jesus with integrity as an athlete and citizen of heaven.
I am a Christian Competitor and as such, I face my challenger with the face of Christ.
As a parent I understand and endorse the purpose of our sports to help boys become men and girls become women of empathy and integrity who will lead, be responsible, and change the world for good. I serve as a role model for our players talking politely and acting courteously towards coaches, officials, other parents, visiting team parents, and spectators at practices, games, and meetings.
In closing, we all have an important role to play when in comes to our athletes and sports. As a member of our Field of Faith team we recognize that we all “Play as One for an Audience of One!” Let the Competition begin and let the glory be God’s.
