The Principles

The Gospel applied to sport, experienced through sport and spoken in the language of sport.


The five principles are part of a unique curriculum developed by our Athletes in Action staff over the last 45 years, that will give you a Biblical framework to help you see sport as an opportunity to worship God, so that you can participate in sport in a way that honors Him.
