INDIVIDUAL & TEAM RECOGNITION
We believe one of the strongest ways to encourage exemplary behavior on and off the field is provided through reflection and the opportunity to celebrate accomplishments that were hard earned. Near the close of each year, our student-athletes join together to reflect upon their personal and team accomplishments.
Our coaches carefully select student-athletes from each team who model Christ-like character and leadership, are standout players and make key contributions during competition, and show the most development throughout the season. Individual awards include:
- Most Improved Player Award for the player who exhibits dedication, discipline and a commitment to self-improvement.
- Most Valuable Player Award for the player who excels athletically and consistently strives for excellence on the field or court.
- PACE Award (Positive Attitude Changes Everything) for the player who encourages others and exhibits a positive attitude in the face of adversity.
- Heart of a Warrior Award is an annual athletic award intended to develop, recognize and honor Immanuel Christian High School student-athletes who display Christ-like character both on and off the playing field. The Heart of a Warrior Award is given to both a high school female and male varsity player who demonstrates emerging leadership, outstanding dedication, remarkable enthusiasm, and uncompromising sportsmanship as a player, teammate and student. This award is given in order to lift up and honor the name of Jesus Christ. Nominees for the Heart of a Warrior Award must have participated in a varsity sport and maintained academic eligibility during the current school year. The recipients of this award will receive a memento of their achievement in addition to a scholarship to the FCA sports camp of his or her choice.
Wayne the Warrior was named by our student body in honor of former Athletic Director, Wayne Davis. Mr. Davis served the ICS community faithfully for twenty years and was influential in developing our athletic program. Much of the success our athletes’ achievements can be credited to the vision and influence of Mr. Davis. Mr. Davis led by example and helped to instill leadership, discipline and excellence on and off the court for our student-athletes.
Our mascot, Wayne the Warrior, is a frequent visitor at games, all-school events and activities. He reminds our students to be honorable in victory and gracious in defeat while cheering for our athletes as they compete.
Our students and parents are proud to be a part of the Immanuel community and show enthusiasm for ICS on dress down days, school spirit days and outside of school by proudly wearing spirit wear. We offer t-shirts, baseball caps, polo shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, etc. for order online.
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
