Philosophy

The women's basketball program at Dordt College strives to pursue excellence in all areas of life. In order to fully develop as both basketball players and people, we must see our opportunity to play as a both a privilege and gift from God. We must seek to glorify him in all we do both on and off the court. We must strive to be ambassadors of Dordt's tradition and values as a faith-based institution. Through the game of basketball we can learn to be servants, leaders, and witnesses to the Gospel of Christ.
