Incarnate Word Red Knights


The administration of Incarnate Word Academy believes that interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the total school curriculum.  Participation should complement the total educational experience, contributing to the student-athlete's health, physical skills, emotional maturity, and moral values.  A sound athletic program teaches the student-athletes the value of sportsmanship, teamwork, responsibility, and self-discipline.  Our staff will encourage the athletes to strive for their highest possible level of achievement, so that with victory or defeat an athlete will learn valuable lessons that will be beneficial throughout the athlete's lifetime.

Incarnate Word Academy is committed to fostering an athletic program rooted in Christian values.  It is important to the educational nature of athletic events to stress the type of exemplary Christian behavior that should be exhibited by all players and spectators at IWA events.  The positive actions by a coach, athlete or spectator at an event can influence how our school is perceived in our own community and the communities of those schools we meet on the field of play.
