Athletics

Immanuel's philosophy with our athletic program is to encourage students to be the best they can be and give their very best to the glory of God.  

Objectives

  • To implement a successful sports program which demonstrates a Christian and enthusiastic attitude. 
  • To encourage athletes to strive for excellence and to do their best regardless of the outcome.
  • To assist the athlete to develop their basic skills and talents.
  • To teach athletes to participate as a team, which cooperates, supports, and works together.
  • To provide athletes an experience in which they can develop leadership skills, self-confidence, and poise.
  • To encourage and promote school spirit and good sportsmanship.

Interscholastic Sports Offered

Students in 4th grade may only participate when teams are limited in numbers and that child is deemed fit by the coach.  

Cheerleading

Cheerleading was re-introduced at Immanuel this year as a cheerleading ambassador program.  Participating students cheer at basketball games.  In addition, cheerleaders provide encouragement to our student athletes, lead pep rallies, and work to enhance school spirit.  There will never be try-outs for cheerleading.

Conduct

Athletes, parents, and coaches are to model Christ-like attitudes, serve as Christian examples of fair play and good sportsmanship, and emphasize the glory of God over the glory of self and school. 

Sportsmanship

Respect of sportsmanship for athletes, parents, and coaches includes: 

  • Respect for yourself, your coach, your team, the officials, and the opponents.
  • Positive behavior when we win and positive behavior when we lose. 
  • Appreciation of teammates, coaches, spectators, and others that support the athletic program.
