Training for Life

New players. New challenges. Same Spirit.

For the Lady Eagles, this proved to be a tough season for each of them, but they learned the meaning of perseverance. “You’re never lost until you give up,” says Head Couch Kerri Sharp. She recalls a practice that became a turning point. “They were tired of getting beat up. They started standing up. They began to fight.”
The Lady Eagles won several games that they could’ve lost, by rising to a higher standard. Coach Sharp relates this to our spiritual walk with God. “In real life there’s an enemy that wants to come after you. In real life you have to have something in you that’s not gonna allow you to conform to this world.”
The godly wisdom that Coach Sharp has invested in each woman has changed their lives. Bayley Bodien, a team captain, remembers something that coach would always say: “This is not just about basketball. This is training for life.” Even when they were down in a game by 50 points, Bayley knew they had already won because of the “In Christ” realities that were put in them.

“This is not just about basketball. This is training for life.” Kerri Sharp, Rhema Lady Eagles Head Coach
“Being 28, I never thought I would play college basketball, but God had other plans.” Bayley learned that when God calls you, He equips you—He gives you the strength! “He strengthened my body, allowed me to run my fastest mile in under 8 minutes, and complete a line drill in less than 35 seconds.”
Each woman’s basketball skills were sharpened and each one’s spirit was sharpened. “We work on the inside the whole year,” Coach Sharp shares. “When you keep yourself on fire with the Word, everything else stays on fire.”
Even though this season didn’t bring all the wins they would’ve liked, these Lady Eagles have Champion hearts. Their growth was phenomenal, and we are looking forward to a bright future for them!
