A word from Troy Esprit, Legacy’s Athletic Director,
Head Varsity Football Coach and Asst. Varsity Track Coach
At Legacy Christian Academy, we are deeply committed to presenting Christ to each athlete so that, by God’s grace, each might grow in Christian character. This is our first priority because we are more concerned about the eternal destinies of our athletes than any other single factor. At Legacy, we recognize that the athletic field offers opportunities for growth in Christian character that do not exist in the classroom.
We desire that each athlete perceives a godly concept of success. While winning the contest is the object of planning and preparation on the part of both coach and athlete, it must not be considered as the sole measure of success. Other values, which are being built into the athlete, must be the ultimate criteria on whether or not we are truly successful.
The criteria for determining the success of each athlete will be seen in the qualities he or she is developing in his or her life. Such things as loyalty, respect for others, proper manners, perseverance, commitment, integrity, diligence, servant-hood, suitable response to crises, humility, handling victory and defeat, encouraging to others, demonstrating unconditional love, developing a work ethic, despising self-glorification, and knowing the joy of play are standards we work to instill.
Athletics is not an end in itself. It may be used either to glorify God or bring Him into shame and derision in the world’s eyes. We desire to instill in our athletes this God-centered attitude toward athletics. This will encourage them to be well-rounded student athletes who develop interests and abilities in other areas.
On behalf of the Athletic Department, we invite you to come out and experience a new phase in your life as you pursue the possibilities of a meaningful High School education here at Legacy Christian Academy.
“BELIEF + EXECUTION = SUCCESS”
