Congratulations on your student-athlete being chosen to represent Iona on a school team this year! The benefits of participating on a school team are numerous. They include: time management skills; creativity in finding ways to improve; strong focus and concentration development; internal skills for handling pressure; learning when to take risks; leadership skills; and taking responsibility for individual performance. These skills aid in developing a growth mindset that will go far beyond the sports field or even beyond high school. Student athletes reap the benefits of their training for the rest of their lives.
Every Iona athlete is asked to pay a one-time Athletic Fee of $40 to offset the costs of our program. This fee will help to cover some of the cost of our Year End Athletic Banquet. Our budget includes: catering, music, decorations, engraving and plaquing major awards, MVP awards, and tokens of appreciation for coaches. Some teams will have extra fees to cover the cost of the rink, the fields, or tournament entries.
If you would like your child to participate in the Athletic Program but have extenuating financial considerations, please contact our Department of Physical Education and Athletics.
Good luck to all of our school teams this season!
