Our Mission

We can't play sports forever, that's true.

But what is forever, is the world view, lessons, and memories we gather in our time of competition and most importantly - our souls. Because of this we will always see the world through the lens of a competitor. Since we know our identity lies in who Christ says we are, we must come to know how God uses that lens for our good. 

Graced Competitor's goal is to provide encouraging items, community, and inspiring stories
& resources to a world that seeks to know Truth.
Every aspect of competition points us to our Creator- grit, courage, humility, discipline, adversity, fellowship, overcoming, responsibility, dedication. We lose our sense of identity when we forget that what we do in life should point us to Heaven. No matter how we compete, the process should not be based on self-reliance but a guiding path to holiness and refinement. God's grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:9) and He calls us in a way that is necessary for sanctification. No matter how we compete, He plants the seeds of our heart with the desire to become a better version of ourselves and to do something great. So it is necessary that we not only compete, but we compete with grace -

to be a Graced Competitor.

"It is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life... It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society..."
St. John Paul II
