Our Athletic Philosophy

The primary purpose of school is education. Participation in athletics is a privilege for those students who are eligible according to the rules and policies of South Aiken Baptist Christian School and the South Carolina Independent School Athletic Association (SCISAA), an affiliate of the South Carolina Independent Schools Association (SCISA). SABCS is committed to the values of a well-rounded athletic program.

We believe:

  • that participation in sports activities is an integral part of a student’s educational experience;

  • students should incorporate physical development with spiritual growth;

  • we should glorify God with the talents and abilities He has given to each of us individually;

  • as team members we should build relationships in our community and with other schools;

  • our students will learn the value of teamwork, test and determine the limits of their own physical abilities, learn self control, and learn to handle success and failure;

  • that student athletes are viewed as role models, and we expect our athletes to adhere to the highest standards of ethical behavior and sportsmanship; and

  • as representatives of SABCS and, more importantly, of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the student athletes will strive to conduct themselves in a manner that pleases all those they represent.
