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.
