Athletics & Activities
Your decision to take advantage of Ankeny athletics and activities co-curricular programs will be educational, rewarding and challenging. The activities department encourages you to take advantage of as many programs as your time and talent will permit.
We do not encourage specialization in one sport, but rather we encourage you to experience a variety of sports as well as other school activities.
Naturally, due to conflicts in seasons, practice times, schedules, etc., some choices will have to be made. We wish you the best as you strive to grow mentally, socially and physically through competitive activities.
Athletics & Activities Philosophy
The school believes that interscholastic activities supplement the secondary curricular program and become a vital part of a student’s total educational experiences. These experiences contribute to the development of learning skills and emotional patterns that enable the student to make maximum use of
his/her education. Student participation in any part of our activities program is a privilege which carries with it responsibilities to the school, to the activity, to the student body, to the community, and to the student him/herself. Commitment, loyalty, camaraderie, discipline, citizenship and sportsmanship will be fostered through the activities participation experience. This participation will enable the student to develop physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
