Athletics, team sports with scheduled practices and competitions versus other local schools (interscholastic) or internationally, are an integral part of the educational process at International Programs School. As of 2018, both our Girls and Boys are underneath the DPSL (Dammam Private Schools League). We participate in three distinct age groups, U14/12 which is grades 4-8, U16 which is grades 8-10, and U19 which encompasses all of the grades. IPS’ aim is to develop a competitive athletic program yet not lose sight of educational values such as fair play, sportsmanship, teamwork, principles, health, and scholastic achievement.
Athletics should be a broadening experience in which mind-body harmony is created while aspiring to attain physical and mental excellence. It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory, however, victory is only one criterion when determining the success of a season or student-athlete. Guiding IPS Falcon athletes to fulfill their maximum potential is the ultimate goal. Participation in athletics enables student-athletes to prepare their minds and bodies to be thinkers, problem-solvers, and caring risk-takers who are modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
