The Mariner Mission

To help our athletes reach their potential as basketball and volleyball players by teaching them the fundamentals of the game and by providing them the opportunity to showcase their abilities in a competitive environment

To use the lessons of the game to train our athletes in sportsmanship and character development

To build a sense of school pride and develop relationships among our athletes that they will value for a lifetime

To glorify God and further His kingdom by emphasizing Colossians 3:23 “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.”

The Mariner Experience

Every practice and game begins with prayer. Everything we do is intended to strengthen the Christian faith of our athletes.

Mariners receive accurate statistics after each game to document their achievements. They also receive recognition if they tie or break a school record in any major statistical category.

Mariners have access to the team blog with archives of game photos, videos, game and season stats, school records, and sports articles intended to build their Christian faith. Mariners are invited to attend the year-end awards banquet.

Mariners have opportunities to attend outings to local high school and college basketball and volleyball games with teammates.


The Volleyball season begins in August and runs through mid-October. To learn more about the Mariner volleyball team please contact Coach Tina Mabry at:  tina.mabry@coldwellbanker.com
