The primary goal of the Palisades Charter High School Lacrosse Program is to develop student-athletes of character and integrity who will serve as positive members of the school community and the greater society. We believe that the following objectives will best augment the program's mission.
The Palisades Charter High School Lacrosse program has a strong foundation built on the values of family, community, excellence and pride. All members of the program will strive to uphold this tradition through hard work, professionalism, and loyalty.
Family: We believe in relationships that are grounded in love, honesty, trust, and respect. As student-athletes, we will meet our responsibilities with integrity, persistence and confidence. Through the bonds we create, we will hold ourselves, our teammates, our classmates, and the entire high school in the highest regard.
Community: We believe that as visible members on campus, we have an opportunity to strengthen our community through active participation and service. In giving of ourselves, we can enrich the lives of others around us. Through this process, we might also know the reciprocal benefits of engaging with a diverse world.
Excellence: We believe in the words of Vince Lombardi: “Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence. Excellence must be pursued, it must be wooed with all of one’s might and every bit of effort that we have each day there’s a new encounter, each week a new challenge.”
Pride: We believe that the pride and confidence we derive from our team activities will not deter us from recognizing the great privilege we have been presented as student-athletes and as members of the Palisades Charter High School Lacrosse program.
