On behalf of Lake Michigan Catholic Schools and the Athletic Department, we would like to welcome you to Laker Athletics. We truly believe that athletics are an integral part of the educational program for students. The Athletic Department will provide every opportunity for the student-athlete to participate, and also provide proper facilities and dedicated coaches.
In the LMC Athletic program, our student-athletes learn the values associated with discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship and many other characteristics important in life. If interscholastic athletics are to be justified as school activities, then values such as these must be the priorities of every program. Ethics, playing within the spirit of the rules, and good sportsmanship (which is good citizenship) must be woven into the fabric of the athletic program.
Building self-esteem and self-confidence is an ongoing process, used in both games and practices. Through this process LMC coaches challenge and develop players, both technically and emotionally, in a positive manner, using both praise and constructive criticism. Coaches are encouraged to make praise personal, criticism impersonal.
As members of the LMC athletic program, students and coaches are expected to demonstrate proper respect for each other, other teams and coaches, teammates, officials, spectators and equipment.
Our student-athletes put a lot of time and effort into their sports. Please come cheer them on!
