LHS BXC Mission:
The Libertyville High School Athletic Program will promote the DARING mission of District 128 by providing our student-athletes the opportunities to reach their potential as responsible and productive citizens. This is accomplished by fostering a culture of success with an emphasis on academic, athletic, social and personal development.
LHS Expectations For Success: PROGRAM
Passion (Choosing to sacrifice your time and comfort in order to achieve something important to you)
Respect (Treating others how you would like to be treated; teammates, coaches, other teams, officials, parents, yourself)
One (Team > Teammate > Self; our TEAM is what makes us great, not one individual)
Grit (Being courageous and pushing through discomfort; being comfortable being uncomfortable)
Reliability (Being someone others can trust and rely on to be their best everyday)
Accountability (Being able to take responsibility for your actions and being able to hold others to their best)
Mindfulness (Being aware of the present moment; calmly acknowledging your emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations)
These core values are non-negotiable.
