The Spirit of IAA Sports

The IAA Hawk is the symbol of school pride and unity, bringing the entire community together under one banner, one colour. We are all Hawks - we are all IAA. The IAA Hawk signifies sportsmanship, teamwork, and persistence. At IAA, students enjoy an extremely active and diverse athletic programme, both during and after school. In addition to encouraging fit and active lifestyles, IAA Sports also provide the ideal environment in which to foster healthy competition, perseverance, commitment and self-confidence within students. IAA Sports is yet another channel through which students may challenge themselves, overcoming limitations and realizing potentials.

IAA athletes are indeed ambassadors, proudly representing their school community in tournaments and competitions within Jordan, the Middle East and Europe. In addition to the weekly Physical Education classes across the Primary and Secondary schools, the Department offers additional instruction for boys and girls in:

  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Swimming
  • Gymnastics
  • Track and Field
  • Volleyball

IAA coaches are well-trained and dedicated, running all school teams, organizing Little Leagues, hosting national tournaments, traveling abroad with IAA athletes and delivering the Primary and MYP Physical Education curricula.
