Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Schools
Athletic Mission and Philosophy
The Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Schools athletic program intensely embraces the academic mission of the school. The Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Schools sets high expectations for its coaches and student-athletes. The athletic program at the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Schools will promote interscholastic athletics that provide lifelong learning experiences to student-athletes while enhancing their achievement of educational goals. Our goal is to reinforce the Ojibwe values of teamwork, pride, respect, commitment, good work ethic, sportsmanship and development of proper winning attitude. It is our hope that through our athletic programs, participating student athletes will adopt these guidelines and develop a passion for athletics that will carry over into all aspects of their lives.
Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe Schools considers participation in athletics to be an integral part of the overall educational experience. Athletics provides opportunities for physical, mental, emotional, and social development. The competition of athletics is viewed as a valuable experience because it challenges each student-athlete to strive for excellence, helps each student-athlete discover their physical limits, and requires each student-athlete to work cooperatively as a member of a team. While winning is a natural goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship and enjoyment of competition takes precedence at all times and enhance the educational value of all contests.
