Philosophies and Goals
Lee High School has a rich tradition and a large group of proud alumni located throughout Baton Rouge. Here at Lee, we want to provide an opportunity for kids to be a part of an environment that will allow them to grow both academically and athletically, pushing them to strive for excellence in all areas of their lives.
We currently have 31 kids in the program, with skill development during our 8th hour period, and strength/conditioning every day after school. We hold our guys accountable in the classroom with multiple grade checks, pushing the importance of academics and preparing for higher education. Players will take part in community outreach during the year as well, working to build character traits that go far beyond the diamond. We hope that players will come into the program as boys, but leave as men ready to head into the word with strong character, discipline, and an understanding of what it means to strive for excellence in all phases of life. I believe, with the right support, we can build something truly special, that will make the past alumni proud, and can change the landscape of baseball in Baton Rouge forever. Thank you for your support. Go, Patriots!
