About Our Program
Our volleyball program consists of:

7th grade and 8th grade teams
High School Level - three teams
Varsity, Junior Varsity and Freshmen teams
Our coaches are very passionate about the Lady Lion Volleyball program. Not only do we enjoy motivating and challenging these young ladies physically; we have such an extraordinary opportunity to invest in their lives spiritually.
The philosophy of the Lady Lion Volleyball program is one that starts with the belief that God is the center of every decision, every practice, and every game.
Volleyball is a mission field which can bring our competitors closer to Christ, and it should be our joy to glorify God on and off the court.
Volleyball is a privilege that God has allowed us, so we can represent Him with excellence.
To provide a setting where players will grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ and develop a passion for serving Him and praising Him in all circumstances.
To foster each player’s athletic development and growth in the game of volleyball.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” [2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)]
Strong and Courageous
“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” [Psalm 73:26 (ESV)]
Determined and Disciplined
“For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been
trained by it.” [Hebrews 12:11 (ESV)]
“But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is there are many parts,
yet one body.” [1 Corinthians 12:18-20 (ESV)]
We will compete without compromise, but also with graciousness in victory or defeat, so we may reflect the image of Christ to our opponents, the officials, and the fans.
