Spartan Athletics

Complete Champion Approach

The Complete Champion Approach focuses on developing student athletes as whole persons (spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and social). The Complete Champion Approach helps student athletes use their God-given talents and intellect to live a life of significance, experiencing true personal success and powerfully influencing their family and their community.

Partnering with other departments of the University, Spartan Athletics intentionally strives to develop the Complete Champion in five areas:

Athletic Development

Technical skill development, high level competition, strength and conditioning, nutrition, sport psychology, and video analysis.

Spirtual Development

Discipleship, mentoring, sport ministry, national training camp, Bible studies, Playbook (Sunday Night Alive), prayer teams, winter retreat, and short-term cross-cultural mission trips.

Academic Development

Athletes have access to an academic coach, the Learning Resource Centre, study hall/study skills, tutoring, advising, and technical support as well as a Collegium membership.

Leadership Development

Student-Athlete Leadership Team (SALT) leadership opportunities, professional development for SALT and team captains, and community service projects.

Personal Development

Life skills seminars, career planning, time management seminars, counseling service, special speakers bureau, and Toastmasters.
