First Baptist Christian Academy believes that quality education includes the opportunity to participate in athletic programs. The athletic program is extracurricular only in the sense that student involvement is a voluntary privilege and requires an investment of considerable time outside the school day. Therefore, with these opportunities available, students are expected to represent the school as a part of the Christian community with exemplary behavior wherever they go, as the public will take notice.
It is vital that each student involved with the athletic program realize that no matter how formidable the opposition, the team competes to win. Every athlete should strive to be first. They are to be coached and are to play in such a way as to win, and expect to have victory. On the other hand, the student must know that there is no shame or disgrace to the team that plays its best and is behind at the end of the contest. Winning is not the guiding principle. It is how well the team or individual competes.
"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."
"You gotta be a Mighty WARRIOR,
to bear the armor that others fear.
You gotta be a tough team player you see,
if you want wear a jacket from F.B.
You gotta rock'em, sock'em, knock'em,
you gotta FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT with pride.
You gotta be a MIGHTY WARRIOR,
come on and stand up and yell for our side."
