These are the Elite Values of the Lorain Elite Flag Football League. They are ingrained in each athlete's and coach's mind from the beginning of training on through the end of the session. Most importantly, these athletes learn how to implement these values not only during competition but in their daily lives as well.
Loyalty - This is first on the list of the Elite Values purposely because the ownership of the LEFFL believes that this is the most important of them all. A loyal person is one who supports and respects his or hers leadership and stands up for the Elite Values at all times. By wearing the uniform of the Lorain Elite you are expressing your loyalty By continuing to have the same honor, dignity, and respect for ones self and others off of the field is the representation of the first of our Elite Values, Loyalty!
Integrity – The second of our Elite Values is Integrity. This value works hand in hand with the first value, loyalty. Most can remain loyal while people are watching but it takes integrity to be honest and have strong moral principles white no on can see you doing the right thing. Without integrity a person becomes untrustworthy and therefore can not be a contributing member of the ELITE!
Personal Courage – The third of our Elite Values is personal courage. The ability to face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral) is a trait that is extremely hard to achieve but once you are able to overcome these obstacles you gain the power to achieve whatever your mind desires. Facing moral fear or adversity may be a long, slow process of continuing forward on the right path, especially if taking those actions is not popular with others. You can build your personal courage by daily standing up for and acting upon the things that you know are honorable and in doing so become ELITE!
