What the Coaches are Saying...
Feb 25, 2019

“One of the most important things to understand about Concordia University Nebraska that makes it unique from most other colleges and universities: our institution has a commitment to its identity in Christ, from top to bottom. It's one of the best things about it. We have outstanding academics, highly competitive teams, great coaches, and amazing facilities. But so do many other places. As head coach, my faith in Christ is the MOST important thing to me. It guides all decision-making we make in building our program. What this means on a day to day basis? As fun as it is to pursue competitive greatness, my true reason for being here is to be a servant to every athlete on our team, whatever that means, and to love them unconditionally. Our professors are the same way. Athletes who are commit to our program care more about others than themselves, and it makes for an amazing team family. Nobody, including me, has it all figured out - we are all broken people in a broken world, in need of undeserved grace all the time. At the same time, when life gets rough, we come together as a family in a special way that I loved when I was a student-athlete here in the 90s, and love today now as head coach. Three things are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL in order for any athlete to have long-term success in Concordia University Nebraska cross-country or track & field. These are not listed in order of importance, because all three are necessary in order to have long-term success in our program! LOVE OF CROSS-COUNTRY/TRACK & FIELD If you love/have a passion for these sports, or can rekindle/develop this quickly, you will decide that the sacrifices of time and energy are worth it and you will thrive! If you cannot imagine college life here without running, jumping, or throwing, then you WILL find ways to prioritize your time to get everything done while still having the benefits of the sport. DESIRE FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS You can have tremendous enthusiasm for the sports of cross-country/track & field, but if you are not determined to do well academically here, then you will get done with your fall semester and find yourself ineligible (and in danger of losing scholarships because of this). If you are succeeding academically, then your reward is to GET to do cross-country and track, and receive all the benefits that go with this! A BELIEF THAT OUR TEAM-BUILDING ACTIVITIES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF OUR SUCCESS We all have individual goals. I have had athletes from time to time say to me, “Coach, I don’t care what you say, track is an individual sport, not a team sport. Each person does their thing and you add it all together and that’s where your team score comes from.” I believe in something called “SYNERGY”, where all of our individual parts can come together and create a “whole” that is actually greater – of more magnitude – than just the total of the parts. For instance, 2+2+2 can become 7 instead of 6. This is why we are committed to a great deal of additional team-building activities (mandatory) outside of practice compared to many other teams. This is something that makes our team unique and special compared to most others. NOT ESSENTIAL, BUT VERY HELPFUL We are a Christian university, with a mission statement that pushes us to grow in our faith in Christ and become better-equipped to serve others. As a coach who views what we do as a ministry to you, we will unashamedly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to you on a consistent basis, and encourage you to grow in your faith. Student-athletes who share these values are more likely to stay with the school and program long-term. HOWEVER, we do not consider it “essential” because we have had people of different faiths (Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, etc) as well as agnostics and atheists who have a great love for and commitment to our program. Why? Because they value the other three essentials mentioned above. No matter your beliefs, if you are open to our underlying Christian philosophy, you will be more inclined to stay with us long-term.”

—Coach Matt Beisel
