Island School embraces the idea that students benefit from regular, strenuous physical activity.
While athletics remain just one part of Island School’s broad educational experience, we believe it is a vital part. Experience suggests that students find reward from contributing to a joint effort with teammates. Lessons in teamwork also teach students about commitment, sportsmanship, and competition, not to mention limits and stress. Friendships made on the athletic field carry into the rest of campus life.
Island School has three varsity Fall sports that students may participate in. The general time frame for competition is from August through October.

Varsity and JV Girls Volleyball
The girl’s Volleyball program is one of the longest standing programs at Island School. They practice and play in the state of the art Wilcox Gymnasium. In 2017, the Girls Junior Varsity and Varsity teams won the most games in Island School history.
Varsity Boys and Girls Cross Country is a popular and successful program at Island School, sending dozens of runners and teams to run in the state championship meet. This team sets the foundation for many to run in college. Island School has also won several Kauai Interscholastic Federation Cross Country Team Championships, for the boys (2002, 2003, 2014, 2017, 2018) and girls (2014).
Air Riflery is a marksmanship program where student-athletes post 10 meters from a target and shoot pellets at bullseyes that are the size of a silver dollar. They shoot from three different positions: prone, standing, and kneeling. We have sent multiple individuals to state competitions and look forward to doing so once again this season.
