Welcome to the Innovation Academy High School Athletic Site!
At Innovation Academy, all students are encouraged to participate in our athletics program. Though we offer varsity sports which require a significant commitment and certain level of skill, junior varsity and freshmen teams are also important features of our athletic program. Our junior varsity teams are made up of athletes of all levels of experience. Junior varsity/freshmen level teams are ideal for athletes who have either not participated in athletics before or are transitioning from a middle school level of competition to a high school level. This level is also a perfect fit for those students who previously played a sport as a child, but for one reason or another have stopped. At IACS, athletics are an important part of our school community. With our program, we strive to build a sense of school spirit, which will only be enhanced by a greater number of athletes. Athletics can be a defining part of a high school experience and are a great way to encourage life-long fitness. Through the different athletic programs that are offered at the high school level, our athletic staff instills the importance of academics, values, discipline, leadership, and teamwork in all student-athletes. The Innovation Academy Athletic Department has worked hard to create an environment in which all students feel a sense of belonging and are at ease stepping out of their comfort zone to try new things.
For the more seasoned athletes who are looking to compete at a higher level, our varsity programs are a good goal to push for. Varsity teams are groups of serious athletes who are intent upon developing their athletic skills. They are also athletes willing to dedicate significant amounts of time to their sport. Competition is an important focus, though not the only one, of varsity athletics. A very high level of academics, values, discipline, leadership, and teamwork is expected of all varsity student-athletes.
We are very excited to welcome back current athletes this season and are also looking forward to meeting the new members of our program. As our program grows, we continually welcome and encourage feedback. Please feel free to email either our Athletic Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Athletic Director, Nolan McKinnon, at email@example.com. In addition, all student-athletes, as well as their families, will receive an anonymous survey at the end of every season. We strive to make our program a positive addition to our athlete’s lives and your feedback is essential to our growth and development.
