LCDS Athletic Department Mission Statement
LCDS is committed to building an athletic department that supports the overarching mission of the school: to promote students' intellectual, creative, physical, and emotional development. A rigorous athletic program refines the skills cultivated within the classroom; inspires a sense of community and school pride; challenges students to explore hidden talents. Regardless of the sport or level, coaches, parents, and program administrators are engaged in a partnership designed to provide a quality experience for every student-athlete. The LCDS Athletic Department believes this quality experience is most readily achieved through a focus on three key areas: accountability, sportsmanship, and the pursuit of excellence.
Representing LCDS through athletics is an honor and a privilege. Parents, players, coaches, and administrators must hold each other accountable to the highest standards.
We will handle success with humility and failure with grace. Ours will be a culture that promotes respect for teammates, opponents, officials, fans, and the game itself.
Pursuit of excellence
We pursue excellence in athletics, just as we pursue excellence in academics and the arts. While subvarsity programs are developmental by nature, our goal for varsity athletics is to compete at the highest level possible.
