PHILOSOPHY

To be consistent throughout our athletic programs, Fellowship Academy uses the rules and regulations set forth through our Varsity programs (NCAA, NFHS and TAPPS) to govern ALL of our athletic programs, including elementary and Junior High sports.

We recognize the normal stages of a child’s development and provide appropriate opportunities in athletics:

Junior High Programs (6th - 8th grades) encourage participation and experimentation and establish a love for the game. The fundamentals of the game will be strongly emphasized. Tryouts are for the purpose of team placement based on skill and ability. Every athlete in our Jr. High programs will play in every game (including tournaments, championships, etc.) unless a player fails to maintain expectations regarding behavior, academics, or practice attendance. Coaches will do their best to provide as much playing time to each individual as possible, but it is not required that each player play the same amount of time. Junior High athletics will work to develop skills and technique as well as introduce the concept and critical need of “teamwork”. And finally, athletics at this stage provides first time excitement of wearing Fellowship Academy school colors in sports.

Junior Varsity Programs (9th – 11th grades) strive to further a love for the game, continue to develop fundamental skills, and help athletes understand and execute more advanced level strategies and schemes. Tryouts are for the purpose of team placement onto varsity teams based on skill and ability. Cuts are discouraged but permissible if based on facility or resource issues. Playing time is at the discretion of the coach.

Varsity Programs (9th – 12th grades) strive to be the best they can be with a focus on excellence in execution. Players are put in positions to get the most out of their athletic talent, cultivate leadership skills, and understand “team-first” responsibility. Each head coach will put the collective efforts of the team ahead of individual achievement and will take knowledge, ability to execute, attitude, conduct, and safety into consideration when it comes to playing time. Athletes should not assume that they are guaranteed a spot on a varsity team simply because they participated on the same team in previous years.
