Athletics

ICS athletics strives to develop student-athletes that are disciplined and purposeful in their training. 

In whatever we do (eating, drinking, studying or playing sports) we strive to do for the glory of the Lord because He did it ALL for us. Our performance is not about achieving individual fame or proving our worthiness, but rather a humble response of thankfulness, faith and joy in what He did for us. A variety of coaches and personalities contribute to ICS’s athletic programs, but they all share a commitment to developing healthy attitudes toward competition, promoting physical fitness, and, most of all, acknowledging that all gifts and successes come only from God.

ICS ranks among the top in the state when it comes to percentage of the student body that participates in athletics. Many of our students enjoy the experience of being part of a team as a player, manager, or assistant coach. Our elementary students (1st-5th grade) participate in the Junior Jazz basketball league. Middle School is a part of the WAC league with nine other schools which features basketball, cross-country, soccer and volleyball. High School is a member of the UHSAA Class 1A Region 18 (Utah High School Activities Association, www.uhsaa.org) and offers baseball, basketball, golf, soccer and volleyball.

Message from the Athletic Director

Welcome to Intermountain Christian School Athletics! Our Christian school in Salt Lake City, Utah, offers a competitive athletic program with a focus on winning with integrity so athletes may exemplify Jesus Christ on the volleyball court, baseball diamond, basketball court, or soccer field! Our athletic program provides a microcosm of the real world through sports which encourages student athletes to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and to develop into men and women who will be Christian leaders in the world. 

Every one of our athletes is challenged throughout the season and does not walk away empty-handed at its close. We thank you for your support of the athletics department, and we look forward to working with student athletes, parents and fans with a heart for glorifying God through sport! If you have any questions please feel free to email me at tdrisdom@intermountainchristian.org. GO LIONS!

The Athlete's Prayer

Lord,
Please clear my head of all distractions and my heart of burdens I may bear, so I may perform my very best knowing you'll always be there. Please lift me up before the moment so through your eyes I may see, and have a clearer understanding as the game unfolds before me. With great courage I will meet this challenge as you would have me to, but keep me humble and remind me that my strength comes from knowing you. Then when all eyes are upon me at the end of this game, I will turn their eyes to you O Lord and to the glory of your name.
Amen
