JIS Athletics Philosophy
JIS Athletics is committed to offering all members of our community opportunities to participate in a variety of physical activities and competitive sport that are guided by the JIS Core Values. For student-athletes we offer year-round skill development in both individual and team sports, while simultaneously providing an environment that focuses on increasing the participant’s level of physical fitness, develop higher social and emotional well being, and increasing the capacity to compete at a higher level. We offer our greater community opportunities for personal development through recreational sport play and fitness based activities as well.
Our mission is that all participants associated with JIS Athletics will show respect for self and others, value teamwork, and win and lose gracefully. Additionally, we look for opportunities in athletics where athletes learn resilience and resourcefulness. While team and individual success is a natural goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship and the JIS core values take precedence at all times.

The Middle School athletics program provides meaningful and comprehensive educational experiences for all students wishing to participate in sport.

At all times the students will be engaged in ways that convey positive attitudes with regard to participation, sportsmanship, responsibility, fitness, and teamwork.
Many opportunities are available across the four sport seasons comprising the school year. Events like the Weber Classic JIS Invitational Track & Field Championships and the Touch Rugby Tournament are among the highlights of the year.

Community Sports offers sporting and fitness activities in order to better serve both students and adults. These activities are operated outside the JIS curriculum, and so carry a separate fee per program.
