As more information emerges, the benefits of multi sport participation are becoming more apparent. The days of athletes specializing in one sport are numbered. Van Horn High School in particular does not believe in single sport specialization. VHHS strives to have athletes perform in mutliple sports in multiple seasons. There are three seasons in scholastic athletics, and the Independence Multi Sport Association would like to help prepare the youth of Independence to participate in the various sports of each of those seasons to enhance their scholastic athletic careers. IMSA works hand-in-hand with parents and the school district to help kids to maximize not only their athletic potential, but to do so with a consistent emphasis on academics as well.
