The cheerleading squad cheers for all of our home basketball games and will focus on school spirit and community this year. Our track team has seen continued success, including our first state champion in the girls 200M race in 2011. The boys volleyball team has seen some great success the past two years, including being the 3A state runner-up in 2011, and the boys soccer team has seen some great accomplishments as they've been in the 3A state tournament 3 of the last 4 years as high as the #6 seed.
To participate in interscholastic activities here at James Irwin, you must first make sure you have a physical completed by a doctor with the CHSAA form filled out (available in the Athletic Packet here on the website) prior to tryouts of the activity in which you wish to participate. The other forms in the Athletic Packet must also be filled out, signed and turned into the Athletic Office before participation begins. Currently, there is an $85.00 athletic fee ($42.50 for those who qualify for free and reduced lunch) and a transportation fee (up to $100.00) for each activity in which a student participates. Those fees are expected to be paid before any player plays in any game for the season, unless arrangements are made with the Athletic Office ahead of time.
Participation in any extra-curricular activity is a privilege at James Irwin, and all academic standards (minimum 2.0 GPA with no failing grades) must be maintained to compete and continue throughout the length of the season. All athletes are expected to demonstrate the core values we teach here at James Irwin (Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Excellence). These values are expected to be demonstrated even in the midst of competition on the court or field and in every activity of our school. Participation with any of our teams should produce characteristics of teamwork, leadership, responsibility, hard work, and integrity as each team member strives to work together to accomplish their goals throughout the season.
We hope that participation in our programs will result in our students getting a balanced education with our rigorous academic standards in the classroom and high standards we expect from our athletes as well. We are honored to have the opportunity to be a part of your student’s education and development!
