The Athletic Program is broken down into 5 concepts that we believe in, that we teach to our coaches, parents, and student-athletes.
#1 Put Your Foot in the Circle
At Lick-Wilmerding, we do not have any cuts for our Freshman, everyone gets a chance to play. We want all of our Student-Athletes to have the courage to go out for a team, make the commitment to excellence, and to believe that they are the best.
#2 Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Teammate?
It's not about you, it's about LOVE, SACRIFICE, FAMILY. (I've Got Your Back!) . We are all playing for the name on the front of our Jersey. Our Student-Athletes believe in "What can I do to help the team win?" All of our Student-Athletes believe that the only way to build confidence is W-O-R-K.
#3 Champions Find A Way!
Our Student-Athletes are taught to believe in all of the reasons why we can, not why we can't. be successful. All of our Student-Athletes wear a GREEN DOT! on their shoes during the season, to help remind them of the power of positive thinking.
#4 Champions Choose the Right Way!
Every time we run out to the practice field or play in a regular game, we know that we are representing our school and we want to make sure that we are Role Models in everything we do. Sportsmanship, Good Character, Respect, Making good decisions are very important to our Athletic Program.
#5 Appreciate How Lucky We Are!
We want all of our Student-Athletes to appreciate how lucky they are to play High School Athletics at Lick-Wilmerding. We want them to remember the people before them who wore those jerseys. We want them to know how much work our parents and coaches do to make sure they have a great high school experience and last of all, we want our Student-Athletes to leave Footprints for all of our future Tigers.
