S T R O N G R O CK ATHLETICS MISSION The goal of the athletic program at Strong Rock is to grow each of our student-athletes in their relationship with Jesus, giving them the foundation which will enable them to be “quality citizens whose spiritual and moral character will bring credit to our community and be a lighthouse of good throughout our nation.” We are focused on enhancing the character and attitude of our student-athletes as much as their athletic ability. Our priority and strategic intention is to use the vehicle of athletics to develop the Men and Women of Strong Rock. Our emphasis is on the student-athletes as individuals and their pursuit of excellence in all aspects of their lives. Thus, winning is a by-product of our approach to life and athletics. Strong Rock Christian School admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Strong Rock Christian School offers youth sports camps on campus throughout the summer for many different sports. The 2008 SRCS Summer Camps began early this summer with a softball camp led by Coach Eddie Wise, girls’ basketball camp led by Coach A.C. McCullers, boys’ basketball camp led by Coach Sneathern, and a football camp led by Coach Bell and his Staff. As you turn through the pages of the Sports Media Guide you will find a personal biography of each coach and their accomplishments. We are blessed to have a collection of coaches with the years of experience, knowledge of the sport, combined with the desire to develop young athletes in a Christian atmosphere. SRCS Summer sports camps information will always be promoted in the Spring on the “Athletics” page of the school web site at www.strongrockchristianschool.com. 78 • Strong Rock Christian School
