AIA Principles

The AIA Principles

The Gospel applied to sport, experienced through sport and spoken in the language of sport.


The five AIA Principles of Faith and Sport are part of a unique curriculum developed by our Athletes in Action staff over the last 45 years. They will help give you a Biblical framework for seeing your sport as an opportunity to worship God, so that you can participate in sport in a way that honors Him.
