About Our Program
Football is fun! At CTCS we strive to give our students the best possible athletic experience and have a whole lot of fun while we do that. Our student athletes are coached to play football as a form of worship for our Heavenly Father.
When young men are able to gain this perspective, their true motivation changes and the results are outstanding. Football is safer than it has ever been: better equipment, better preparation, coaching certifications, and greater awareness. In the last two years, we have only had one kid experience an impact related injury. Our coaches take every measure to keep your kids safe!
For the 2019 football season, we will hang our hats on this acronym:
L. I. O. N. S.
Love – The greatest teams are full of servants. Matthew 10:45
Initiative – Be a starter and be a finisher.
One Audience – Play for Christ. Worship Jesus with your efforts.
Never Quit – Never quit.
Step Up - Stand in the gap. Ezekiel 22:40
