At GamePoint Athletics, we believe “game point” moments are not limited to athletic competitions. There are moments in life when the pressure is on to display high character or conform to a lower standard. How you live your life off the court and field is what really matters.
That is why our mission is two-fold:
Top-notch athletic instruction and training.
We provide a variety of safe, FUN, challenging, and exciting physical activities for youth of all ages. Physical fitness, skill development, healthy competition, cooperation, socialization, and having tons of fun are wonderful benefits of our athletic programs!
Character-building as a basis for learning.
Athletics offer a rich training ground for youth to develop a higher standard for strength of character. This includes how to face personal challenges, how to treat others well, and how to rise to the occasion when other people need you the most. This character training will enable kids to achieve more for themselves and other people throughout their entire lives. But the mind-set can be learned and practiced at the earliest age.
We believe there are God-given character traits that are universal, and transcend all of life. The more a person possesses these character traits, the “higher” their character is. GamePoint Athletics exists to mold and shape these high character traits in our youth today through the medium of athletics.
Throughout the year and at all our events, we focus specifically on the following traits:
At GamePoint Athletics, participants will learn and discuss what these traits mean, and how they are applied practically in their everyday lives. This will be done naturally when physical activities present opportune moments to practice, reflect, and have discussions. However, there will also be a structured time each class or lesson (about 5 minutes or so) when the coach/teacher will gather participants together. They will then lead a discussion with them about how best they can develop these specific character traits.
