Immaculate Conception Grade School Athletics: Welcome

2010 Athletics News

Welcome to ICGS Athletics  2011-12
Each spring the ICGS Athletic Board submits to Mrs. Linley and the ICGS School Board our budget for the following school year.  Our goal is to offer the best quality athletic programs for our student-athletes.  We are extremely grateful to all the individuals who contribute to ICGS Athletics throughout the school year.  It is because of the dedicated parent volunteers that we are able to offer such a strong and dynamic athletic program.             ICGS Athletics continues to move toward fiscal independence. This past year we implemented several initiatives to enhance both our program and our financial situation.  Gym concessions, Team Gear, sport camps,  and our Photo Program were positive additions, ones we look to expand in the coming year.  We will continue to look for ways to improve and expand our program.   
          We have once again assessed our participation fees to accurately reflect the costs per sport as well as keeping them consistent with other schools in our league.  We hope our efforts to maintain moderate athletic fees as well as become fiscally sound are supported by our student-athlete families.  It is our goal to provide a safe and positive environment for all our student-athletes. 
2011-12 Athletic Participation Fees:          
Football:                  $125.00
Boys Basketball:               $110.00
Girls Basketball:                 $90.00 
Girls Volleyball:                   $90.00 
Track:                             $85.00 
Cross-Country:                  $60.00          

I thank the Athletic Board for their efforts to maintain costs and to work toward a stronger athletic program.
