Description

DENVER CHRISTIAN HEAD FOOTBALL COACH

The Denver Christian Thunder Football team will be entering its third year as a newly restarted program. It has been a member of the CHSAA 8-man football division and will continue as such during the 2021 season. However, the plan and preliminary approval is for the team to become an 11-man program in 2022 and to join the 1A football division. 

DENVER CHRISTIAN ATHLETIC PHILOSOPHY

We believe interscholastic athletics are an integral part of Denver Christian’s dedication in providing a holistic, Christ-centered experience. The success of our athletic programs are more than the outcome of a competition. It is about capturing every aspect of an athletic experience and using it as an opportunity for growth physically, mentally and spiritually. Thunder athletes learn to live out the phrase, “To God be the Glory,” through thinking and acting in a way that draws attention to who God is and His redemptive story.

ATHLETIC GOALS

Denver Christian provides the opportunity for our students to participate in athletics:

  • To help our students understand that God is in every part of their lives, whether that is in the classroom, on the athletic field, or in their home life.

  • To develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, recognizing that each individual student is a unique creation of God.

  • To provide athletic experiences where our teams participate in such a way that we honor our God, our school, our team, and our community.

  • To develop our students into athletes who play fairly, observe regulations and policies, treat other with courtesy and take adversity without complaining.

  • To demonstrate respect and courtesy toward teammates, opponents, and officials at all times.

  • To help our students gain experience through athletic participation that will develop Christian character and reflect Christ to others.

  • To help our students understand that our motto “To God Be The Glory” is achieved when God is glorified through our effort, attitude, and performance. Our teams will train hard to win without submitting to the “win at all costs” view that is so prevalent in today’s culture.

 

COACH EXPECTATIONS

Athletics is one of the many means of discipleship DC uses to bring students to a deeper relationship with Christ. Participating in a sport provides daily opportunities for students to grow in their walk with Christ by experiencing struggles, failure, success, and relationships through a Biblical framework. Coaches are the primary guide throughout this process. At all times, coaches should represent Christ, the school, and themselves in a way that honors God. Coaches are called to teach their athletes to do the same. In addition to discipleship, coaches must demonstrate excellence in their field and a growth mindset to be ever improving.

  • Coaches should have a clear profession of their faith in Christ and a discipling attitude about coaching/athletics

  • Coaches must have demonstrated knowledge of the game either as a player or as a coach; varsity coaches must have successful prior coaching experience.

  • Coaches must meet the requirements found in the employee handbook

  • Coaches must have a view of athletics consistent with the Denver Christian Athletic program, as outlined in this document.

 
Position Requirements
  • BA degree in education or related field perferred
  • Coaching experience at the high school level required

Middle School and High School teaching positions are also available, but must be applied for separately
