Inside the Bearcats
Competitive, Christ-centred sport
Bearcat Vision. To develop a competitive, Christ-centered athletic program that is respected both locally and nationally for its relentless pursuit of athletic and academic excellence, while displaying world-class sportsmanship.
Bearcat Mission. To develop Christ-centered student athletes by helping them to grow in faith, character, leadership, athletic and academic ability; while providing the opportunity to make a positive contribution presently in their local communities as well as in their future endeavours.
Commitment – We are fully dedicated to the Bearcat cause with no excuses; only results.
Hard Work – We understand the daily effort necessary to pursue one’s potential in the midst of pain, doubt, criticism, and failure.
Respect – We treat others, and oneself, with dignity and admiration.
Integrity – We choose our actions based on values rather than personal gain or the opinions of others.
Service – We acknowledge that we are not to possess a spirit of entitlement or pride, but a spirit of humility and service as we support and encourage fellow Bearcats and students, Columbia staff and faculty, and local churches.
Team-first Attitude – We selflessly sacrifice personal wants, issues, and differences for the team goals and initiatives, using our unique strengths and differences as an advantage to move the team forward.
C.H.R.I.S.T – All our values are rooted in Christ for as John 15:5 says, “”I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.””
