Sterling College Volleyball Team Philosophy

The purpose of the volleyball program is to build up Christ-like young women. We desire to see them reach their full potential by helping them grow in their relationship to God, their relationships to others, academically and athletically.

            Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.  (Luke 2:52)

Relationally with God - Serve God by putting him first in all we do.

            "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind" (Luke 10:27)

            So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:6-7)

Relationally with Others - Pass the love of Christ on to others in all our all our relationships.

            "Love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:39)

            Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. (Romans 12:10)

Academically - Set a standard of excellence in the classroom as we seek to know God more fully

            Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding (Proverbs 3:13)

            Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge. (Proverbs 23:12)

Athletically - Possess a Killer work ethic, determination, enthusiasm and team first attitude.

           Know and embrace our role on the team.

           Integrate a team first attitude - always keep the team in mind.

           Leave it all on the court - strong determination and work ethic.

           Love the game of volleyball - enjoy practicing and competing.

           From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. (Ephesians 4:16)

           Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. (Colossians 3:23)
