We are excited to welcome all 5th - 8th grade boys and girls to the Immaculate Conception School Athletic Program (ICSAP). We feel that team sports have a significant educational value and that participation in athletics should be a positive learning experience. Included in this learning should be the development of the total individual in the areas of Christian growth, discipline, health, teamwork and character, along with skill.
Our expectation is that athletes strive to be Christ-like in effort, attitude and behavior at all times. We strive to instill in each athlete a sense of commitment to their team, to act with integrity and compete with sportsmanship and character. Athletes are encouraged to display grace and humility in victory and defeat. A copy of Parochial League Policy is found in the IC Student Handbook.
This sport is offered to boys in 5th-8th grades. The 7th and 8th grades participate in the Parochial League. In 5th and 6th grades, football is organized primarily through the parents and volunteer coaches. They participate in the Little Rock Private School League.
Girls in grades 5-8 may participate in cheerleading. The 5th and 6th grade squads are organized as clubs with the help of parent volunteers. The 7th and 8th grade squads have a staff sponsor and attend camps in the summer before football season begins. The cheerleaders also participate in organizing and running several pep rallies throughout the year.
Volleyball is a fall sport offered to girls in grades 5-8. Teams compete against others in the parochial league.
Each grade 5-8 has a boys and a girls team. Parochial league play begins in the second quarter.
Boys and girls in grades 5-8 may participate in cross country. Meets are held around the central Arkansas area in the fall.
Track is run in the spring. Both boys and girls in grades 5-8 may participate.

Fifth- through eighth- grade boys and girls may play golf in the spring. Golf is played either at The First Tee in Little Rock or at The Greens at North Hills, depending on the volunteer coaches. We can't wait for Golf to start.
