Philosophy, guidelines and policies

Shoreline Christian School exists alongside Christian parents/guardians and their church to help children develop their gifts and talents in responsive obedience to God. Athletics and other extracurricular activities are part of that development process. The purpose of the athletics program is to provide an opportunity for as many students as is reasonably possible to develop, through their experience in athletics, greater skills and community. This program is especially for those students who want to be challenged in their higher level of aptitude than that provided in physical education class. Emphasis is on the development of an attitude of self-discipline, self-motivation, and cooperation gained through experience in teamwork, on the ability to win and lose graciously; and favorable attitudes and feelings which will help them function better in the world God has placed them. To achieve these goals, the program places emphasis on the quality of the performance of each participant whether it is the athlete, spectator, or supporting persons. Each person should be aware of the potential God has given him or her to improve individual performance and develop better community cooperation by consistent effort and dedication.

But for some sports, the practices are at nearby facilities and our athletes need to arrange carpool transportation with the coaches, other students and parents. These transportation permission questions allow your student/athlete to ride with other parents and/or students. The questions need to be filled out before your student can start practicing with the team. You can choose not to authorize, at which time you will become personally responsible for transporting your child to and from athletic events and/or practices when a school bus is not provided. *

Not to alarm, but to inform, parents are being informed that participation in competitive athletics may result in severe injury, including paralysis or death. Changes in rules, improved conditioning programs, better medical coverage, and improvements in equipment have reduced these risks, but it is impossible to totally eliminate such occurrences from athletics. Players can reduce the chance of injury by obeying all safety rules in their sport, reporting all physical problems to their coaches, following a proper conditioning program and inspecting their own equipment daily. Damaged equipment must be replaced immediately. Even if all these requirements are met, and even if the athlete is using excellent protective equipment, a serious accident may still occur.
