SFC Athletic Director Tom Seitz and SFC Coaches will discuss SFC’s K-12 progressive Eagles Edge at Athletic Preview Night on January 15. Eagles Edge is a progressive kindergarten through 12th grade athletic development system directed by SFC’s staff of professional Christian coaches. Eagles Edge focuses on teaching sports fundamentals, participation on organized teams, and godly sportsmanship starting in kindergarten and progressing through competitive upper school sports. With 81% of SFC middle and upper students playing on one or more of 60 SFC sports teams, the ultimate goal of Eagles Edge is that all SFC athletes become champions for Christ.
Focus on Fundamentals
Eagles Edge conducts clinics and camps to expose young athletes to a variety of sports opportunities. Beginning in kindergarten, clinics and camps are run by professional Christian coaches who train young athletes on sports fundamentals. These fundamentals form the foundation for a child’s future athletic development. SFC high school athletes also assist coaches with kindergarten through eighth grade sports clinics and camps to grow leadership skills.
Team Sports Participation
By fifth grade, Eagles Edge athletes participate on a variety of organized sports teams. Sports teams are participation-based so young athletes receive playing time – no matter what their current skill level. Over 90% of SFC’s 6th – 8th grade students play on one or more of 26 Middle School teams allowing them the opportunity to learn important Christian values and life lessons they can use throughout their lives.
Champions for Christ
With the focus on sportsmanship and godly behavior, Eagles Edge athletes are taught to follow Jesus’ example – both on and off the field. Athletes are led by Christian coaches who not only prepare students for the rigors of competitive sports but mentor students in their relationship to Christ. Eagles Edge athletes are taught to become champions for Christ.
