ICS believes that athletics is a positive and powerful motivator for students to perform better in all facets of school life. Athletics is one way for our students to grow and mature as healthy, well-rounded and socially well-adjusted citizens. By encouraging commitment, determination and teamwork we feel that our students will benefit greatly as they will apply these skills in other areas of their life. We truly hope that the students will take advantage of the athletic opportunities offered to them in order to make their school career a richer experience. We have great sports facilities for safe and spirited play.
Our Athletic program is open to students from grade 4 through grade 12.The objective of the Athletic program at ICS is to provide our students an opportunity to be involved in athletic activities in order develop a positive character-building experience outside of regular school hours. ICS's goal is to establish one of the most varied and disciplined sports programs in Africa, ISSEA and ISSAAA leagues with participants who value identify with and practice the Athlete Code of Conduct.
ICS students in U12, U14, U16, U19 age groups have the opportunity to compete in the eight school local league (ISSAAA) in Addis Ababa. Local schools compete in Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Track & Field and Cross-Country.
ICS Team sports are eligible to ES students in grades 4 and 5 only, MS students in grades 6, 7 and 8, and HS students in grades 9 & 10 (JV), and 11 & 12 (Varsity) with 3 seasons of sports during the school year. More information about the type and schedule of sports that are available will be distributed prior to each season. ICS works within the international and domestic league seasons which facilitates 8-12 weeks of practice and competition each season. ICS does not offer year round, one sport clubs at any age level.
"ICS does an excellent job of organizing and taking part in community and sport events like ISSEA and ISSAAA."
