IHMS Athletics Game Day Schedule

The mission of middle school athletics in the Shawnee Mission School District is to provide inclusive and robust experiences for all students that support and develop the middle-level learner. In order to bring this mission to life for our middle school learners, middle school athletic directors and coaches are committed to providing opportunities for our student-athletes that support the following outcomes:

  • Exposure to a wide variety of social situations that will develop the positive qualities of sportsmanship, cooperation, loyalty, leadership, and self-discipline

  • Develop concepts of goal attainment through hard work and rigorous self-discipline

  • Development of interest in curricular and extra-curricular school programs

  • Create a desire to maintain high scholastic standards

  • Develop athletic skills and abilities to their fullest potential, an appreciation for athletics and competition

  • Create a standard for excellence that will foster winning teams within the bounds of good sportsmanship

  • Promote a rallying point for the student body to build school spirit
