StoneBridge Sports


Mission

The StoneBridge School athletic program recognizes the Word of God as its foundation. Under the direction of the administration and the athletic director, each sport has been designed to build the character of Christ within each participating student. Every athlete is taught to be a representative of Christ, StoneBridge School, and his or her family. The athletic program focuses on the core values of character, confidence, cohesion, and competition.

Special Awards
As part of the philosophy of StoneBridge Athletics, we do not focus on one particular person as the "Most Valuable Player," because we believe that each participant in our sports program is valuable to his or her team. As a result of the philosophy of developing Christian character, we award our student-athletes with the awards of Leadership-Servanthood, Perseverance, Loyalty, and Most Improved. These awards (in the form of engraved trophies) are presented to the students at a special awards banquet held at the conclusion of each sport's season.
