We strive to create an environment at FCA that feels safe and loving, yet disciplined. We feel that our athletes deserve to be respected and trained well. While we expect to them to work hard and do their very best, we do not emphasize competition as the primary purpose of our program. What we are trying to accomplish is changing the culture of the cheerleading world and make a lasting impact for Christ. We believe in modesty, humility and compassion over everything else.
When we compete, our desire for victory is innocently sought, but the desire for others' defeat is not. Christians should be people who are compassionate toward their opponents, even admiring their God-imaging abilities in the process of competition. It also follows here that we will carry some amount of delight in their victory, even as we experience the proper disappointment of defeat. We "rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn."
