According to Grecian history, the word “academia” or “academics” takes its name from a sanctuary outside the city walls of ancient Athens.  The sanctuary was dedicated to the legendary hero named Akademos. In this sanctuary, the philosopher Plato conversed with followers who believed they would be enlightened by their teacher through disciplined sessions of rhetoric and study. These sessions came to be known as the Academy.

It is interesting to note that the Academy contained two separate divisions, a gymnasium and an area suited for informal gatherings for learning. Traditionally, sport has been an integral part of academics. Developing the mind and the body go hand in hand.  The apostle Paul used many illustrations of sport in his attempt to communicate the Christian faith to his readers; one of the most famous being 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, where Paul says,

“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

UVC believes that sport is a co-curricular activity.  We use our sporting practices and events to help us reach our intended student outcomes.  Since sport provides physical, mental and character development opportunities, we are committed to supplementing the classroom education with education on the fields and in the gymnasiums.
Please refer to our Coaches Handbook for more information on how sport is intended to educate and disciple students from a Biblical worldview. Also see our Student Outcomes.
