Athletics

   


At Colonel Irvine, we have a strong tradition in Roadrunner Athletics. We have worked hard building a program to help develop our young student athletes and to develop a strong sense of “Irvine” pride.   Student athletes feel honored to represent Colonel Irvine and take pride in representing our school.

Students in Grades 6 - 9 can compete in interschool athletics. Students in Grades 5 have several opportunities for athletic based clubs to develop their skills.  School athletic team compositions vary from sport to sport. Team selection decisions will be made by coaches based on skill level, leadership, work ethic, behavior and teamwork.  Coaches will also determine whether or not a Grade 6 student athlete is physically and  emotionally capable of competing at a safe and confident level with the Grade 7, 8 and 9 student athletes.

Coaches reserve the right to remove any student athletes from their team at any time during the course of the season both permanently or temporarily if they are not able to:

  • attend and work hard in all practices and games
  • put forth their best effort in all core and option classes
  • be coachable
  • follow the code of conduct and expectations of Colonel Irvine School

Wrestling 

Wrestling is a non-cut team, meaning as long as students are committed to the practices, they are allowed to compete.  Students are entered into weight classes and will compete against students in the same weight class.  More information regarding tryouts will come later.

Basketball 

Here at Colonel Irvine, we offer 4 different basketball teams (Jr. Girls, Jr. Boys, Sr. Girls and Sr. Boys).  Grade 6, 7 and 8 students are allowed to try out for the Junior teams.  Grade 8 and 9 students are allowed to try out for the Senior teams. More information regarding tryouts will come later in December.

Badminton

Here at Colonel Irvine, we offer 3 different badminton teams (Junior, Intermediate and Senior).  Grade 6 and 7 students are allowed to try out for the Junior Team.  Grade 8 students are allowed to try out for the Intermediate team and Grade 9 students are allowed to try out for the Senior team.  More information regarding tryouts will come later in March.

Track & Field

Our Track and Field team consists of multiple events involving running, jumping and throwing.  The running events include 100 meters, 300 meters, 600 meters, 1000 meters and 2000 meters, as well as Hurdles.  The jumping events include Long Jump and High Jump.  The throwing events include Shot Put and Discus.  More information regarding tryouts will come later in April.
