Athletics

ISP operates a competitive sports program and an after-school activity (ASA) program. We encourage students to embrace, belong and participate in as many different experiences as possible throughout their time at ISP. We provide a wide range of opportunities to accomplish this.

At ISP participation in athletics is far more than winning and losing games, we inspire our students to learn and develop through sport. Our enduring hope is that the lessons learned in the sporting arena will remain with our students for a lifetime.

We strongly believe that athletics is an integral part of education. We provide our athletes the opportunity to learn from victory and defeat through our competitive sports programs.

Semester 2 Athletics

We’re looking forward to our first athletic practices on campus since March 9, 2020! We are starting small and with very strict biosecurity protocols. We plan on inviting our first groups to pilot a practice on campus the week before Spring Break. Those families who are currently enrolled in the Virtual Athletics program will receive a communication early next week with an invitation for student-athletes and parents/guardians to attend an information session held on Wednesday, March 17 at 5:00 p.m.

Why offer Athletic practices and ASAs virtually?

ISP's mission states that we "inspire our students to reach their full potential'" and one of the ways in which we do that is through our Athletics and ASA programs. 

  • To keep healthy and relieved of stress and be ready when we get back on campus.
  • To have fun playing with my friends.
  • To learn more about the tactical/strategic part of the sport.
  • To stay connected with my teammates and coaches.
  • To develop my mental strength and preparedness to compete.

I really enjoyed having online (athletic) classes. I know it is not the same but it was super cool getting to talk with my coaches and getting to see my friends or teammates from other grades. I laughed, I suffered, but mostly important is that I had fun, I was happy, and I was fit.
