The mission of the Los Lunas Schools Community is to prepare, empower, and inspire all students to reach their maximum potential. The major goal of the interscholastic athletic program is to provide youth with the opportunity to develop their maximum potential with the physical and mental skills through competitive athletics to enhance their personal and social skills. Competitive athletics generates a pride in achievement; an appreciation for team effort, hard work, and fair play; respect for rules of the game; and respect for the abilities of others. An athlete gains a healthy respect for self and others and values diligence, achievement, and excellence. These are the positive reasons for providing a program of athletic competition.
