The mission of the Downey Christian School Athletic program is to utilize sports in an excellent way as a vehicle to help each student grow as Jesus did, in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God.
Merriam-Webster defines sportsmanship as “conduct becoming to one participating in a sport.” “Furthermore, it is “fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing.” While very competitive, Downey Christian School believes that sportsmanship is more valuable than winning. If we win without sportsmanship, we will consider it a loss. If we lose, but exhibit great sportsmanship, we will consider it a victory.
If you choose to participate in a sport or become a spectator at a sporting event, we encourage you to exhibit sportsmanship at all times. Your decision to do anything less will be considered a negative reflection upon our school and a total disregard to do anything less will become standard operational procedure at DCS.
We strive for excellence in our athletic program. We may loose on the scoreboard at times but we measure ourselves by excellence. If we have used our talents to our fullest, given our all during the contest. And exemplified the character of Christ during competition…then we consider ourselves as having been successful.
Our athletes compete in many sports throughout the school year including boys and girls basketball, flag football, volleyball, tennis, and track and field. DCS participates in a competitive inter-school Christian athletic league that seeks to master each sport yet emphasizes Jesus and out walk with The Lord.
