The ISA Standard of Excellence is built on accountability to foster the holistic development of student-athletes.
We will be better today than we were yesterday. We agree to challenge ourselves, and be challenged by our coaches, teachers, and teammates. We will push ourselves to be stronger academically, athletically, socially, and emotionally, to become high-character leaders in sports and in life.
We will be tested against the best, every single day. When nobody is watching, we will put in the work and earn our keep, so when it’s game time, we’re ready. Pride and preparation will drive us to achieve our highest level of performance, in all aspects of life, no matter how much work it takes.
We will never make excuses. We will always be prepared. Sometimes we will learn through success, and sometimes through failure. When the odds are stacked against us, we will find a way.
The ISA Standard of Excellence calls on us to be our best self, every moment of every day.
