GRPS Student Athletes attend Champions of Character Kick Off

GRPS Student Athletes attend Champions of Character Kick Off

Student-athletes from Grand Rapids Public Schools including Creston, Ottawa Hills, Union, Riverside, GR Ford, SWCC and Westwood were invited to a special basketball season kick off event at Cornerstone University. The event was put on by the NAIA program titled Champions of Character (CoC). The CoC process is designed to instill an understanding of character values in sport and provide practical tools for student athletes, coaches, and parents to use in modeling exemplary character traits.

The CoC hosts a special kick off event every year, using a different sport every year as it’s theme. Basketball was the selected sport this year with the title “Out of Bounds: Why Character Matters”. Special guest speakers included former NBA basketball player and coaches Rick Mahorn and James Edwards, Grand Rapids area legend and MSU star Drew Neitzel, and Patti Tibaldi, renowned coach and recent recipient of the MHSAA Women in Sports award.

The guest speakers spoke on their individual success stories and the importance behind good character, hitting on the importance of constant respect and responsibility. At the end, the session was opened for a group question and answer session with the guests. Student athletes from all over the greater Grand Rapids area were able to ask questions to the panel.
