OUR MISSION

Our Mission is to enrich the mental, physical and emotional well being of all students by providing competitive opportunities in which lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, teamwork, integrity and commitment are emphasized.

NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION IN ATHLETICS:

IUSD does not discriminate in enrollment in or access to any athletics program available. Admission to these programs is based on age appropriateness, team roster space, aptitude and meeting academic and behavioral eligibility requirements. The lack of English skills shall not be a barrier to admission to or participation in the District's activities and programs.

IUSD's facilities and equipment provided for students are comparable and equitable to both sexes without disparity or imbalance, consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's record. For additional information see www.iusd.org (Board Policy 5145.5)

POSITIVE SPORTS PARENTING:

Participation in the athletic program is available to all qualified persons without regard to sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Chapter 5.3, section 4900 et seq.

A parent's "coaching job" is the toughest one of all and takes a lot of effort.  Sometimes in your desire to help your child, best intentions can end up being counterproductive.  Applying the rules for parents will go a long way towards fostering an environment your child can use to enjoy and excel in their sport.

UHS & IUSD POLICY ON FINANCIAL REQUESTS FOR ATHLETICS

California's Constitution affirms that students and parents cannot be required to pay money to gain access to educational activities, including extracurricular and co-curricular offerings such as athletics, nor can they be charged for materials and supplies necessary to participate in educational activities. “Educational activities” has been clearly defined to include extracurricular offerings such as music, sports and some clubs. Moreover, the rules described above are believed to apply to all affiliated groups supporting district and school programs, including PTAs, boosters and foundations.  This principal was legislated and codified in 2012. The district has since worked to clarify that parent donations for most educational activities are voluntary, and that students will not be denied participation if their families choose, for any reason, not to contribute.
