The Little Elm Independent School District is committed to excellence in athletics as a part of a larger commitment to education.The guiding principle behind LEISD’s participation in University Interscholastic League activities is our belief in its educational value for our students. Secondary athletics promotes character traits of high value to personal development and success in later life. These include the drive to take one’s talents to the highest level of performance; embracing the discipline needed to reach high standards; learning to work with others as a team pursuit of a common goal; and adherence to the codes of fairness and respect. We believe that athletics is a PRIVILEGE, not a right, and with that privilege comes certain responsibilities such as integrity, respect, sportsmanship, character, honesty, and pride.
The mission of the athletics program ultimately is that of the Little Elm Independent School District itself: “to engage the mind, to elevate the spirit, and stimulate the best effort of all who are associated with LEISD athletics.”
