One of the many benefits of the IACS sports program is participation in IACS athletics. This participation provides competition among Christian schools of like faith in a variety of sports. The goal of the IACS athletic program is to develop character and leadership in the lives of young men and ladies, so that they will take the lessons learned and use them in their lives for the Lord.
All rules governing participation in IACS contests are determined by the IACS. Unless specified otherwise in the IACS Athletic Handbook, all rules and policies governing participation in IACS contests will be the same as those outlined in the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Handbook. The IHSA also implements the rules and procedures for competition based upon those published by the National Federation of State High School Associations. Our Junior High programs follow the rules and policies outlined in the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA) Handbook.
