Some may ask “Why" Christ in Sport


To that I say kids learn and acquire priceless tools while playing sports.

Some of them include:

  • An appreciation for a healthy lifestyle, and an understanding of fitness
  • Developing a positive self concept by mastering the sports skills
  • Learning how to work as part of a team Developing social skills with other children and adults
  • Learn how to manage success and disappointment
  • Learn that their choices will produce results, whether good or bad.
  • Learn to play fair and be a good sport
  • Learn respect for others Learn how to face challenges
  • Learn how to follow rules


These are a few of the basic values kids learn through sports so why not educate them about Christ as well? No cheating 2 Timothy 2:5 Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor’s crown unless he competes according to the rules. (NIV)
