At the International School of Indiana (ISI), we strive for balance in the lives of our students.

We believe that body, mind, and spirit work best when they’re working together.

So, we offer a wide range of athletic experiences for students in grades 5 to 12,
and joining a team is as simple as attending the first scheduled practice.

Through our open participation policy, ISI provides athletic opportunities to all our students. Every student is encouraged to take part in athletics as a participant, team manager, or supporter. Our coaches make every effort to develop each student’s unique skills. This happens both in practices and in interscholastic competitions. Coaches also try to play every player regardless of ability level. We emphasize the value of competing to the best of our ability and being good sports, win or lose.

While they can't participate in formal athletics, students pre-elementary to grade 5 get lots of fresh air and exercise, too. In addition to their physical education classes, students in Lower School have morning and lunch recess every day.

Students in grades 6 and 7 also get recess after lunch. It’s another way ISI recognizes the whole person in each of our students: mind, body, and spirit.

Currently soccer, volleyball, tennis, cross-country, basketball, swimming, and track & field have the highest levels of participation.

What athletic facilities do you have at ISI?

At the Michigan Road Campus, we have a full-sized gymnasium for basketball and volleyball. We also have an 8-lane track with an international-sized soccer field inside the oval and a practice soccer field to the side. For teams that we do not have a space for on campus, we have partnerships with other community locations such as the West Indy Raquet Club and the Jewish Community Center. At the 49th Street Building, there is a gymnasium for basketball and physical education.

How do ISI athletes get to off-site practices and competitions?

When possible, we transport our athletes to practices and competitions on a school owned bus or van. We also arrange car-pooling through parents for some of our larger teams.

Is there an athletics participation fee?

Yes. This fee helps pay for entry fees, officials, transportation, equipment, uniforms, and coach stipends. 

Does my child need a physical exam before participating?

Yes. All student athletes, Grades 5-12, must have an exam each year prior to participating on a team. Athletic forms are located on the Parent Portal

Be sure to complete the IHSAA physical form and concussion information form and return them to Joel O'Neil, Athletic Director. These are required prior to participation in any Athletic programs.
