Hosanna Christian Academy's athletic department's philosophy is to develop a Christ honoring program that will develop teamwork and a Christian character in each of its athletic teams. We offer an opportunity for our students to utilize their God-given gifts and talents in pursuit of excellence both on and off the field of competition.
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24-25 NIV)
