Mustang Athletics

Welcome to Mustang Athletics at Currey Ingram Academy. We proudly offer both individual and team sports to students in grades K-12. All students are encouraged to participate in and/or support the school's athletics program.

What We Offer

List of 3 items.

  • Lower School Athletics (Grades K-4)

    Athletics for grades K-4 introduces students to organized athletics through a recreational, every-team-member-plays format. Lower School Athletics helps young players learn rules, basic skills, and good sportsmanship while having fun. Sports that are often offered are cross-country, basketball and soccer.

    Many of the sports opportunities in Lower School are student- and parent-driven. As is typical with most elementary school sports programs, the school relies on parents to help with coaching and organizing teams through several local youth sports organizations. Parent volunteers are supported by LS Athletic Director Bo Storie.

    The sports listed below are Mustang Athletics' current offerings. Please keep in mind, sports are offered based on participation numbers.

  • Middle School Athletics (Grades 5-8)

    The Middle School Athletics program will offer various opportunities for students by sport, based on developmental appropriateness and readiness.  Coaches will combine fundamentals, teamwork, and sportsmanship in practices and play.  Though all interested students are encouraged to play, if an excessive number of students are interested in playing, a placement period may be held to determine the teams.  Students will be placed according to attitude, skill, experience, and familiarity with the game.  Once teams are assigned, one team (Gold Team) will participate with the most competitive schedule, and the other team(s) (Green Team, Mustang Team, etc.) may participate in various ways, including an outside league or execute as a skills club.
     
    Some teams may compete in local recreational leagues including, but not limited to First Presbyterian Church League, and West Nashville Sports League.  In addition, sports may be combined with after school programs (Boost).
     
    Travel will vary for teams.  School teams playing away matches or games on weekdays, will be transported to competition by school transportation.  Competitive teams will compete with a schedule that includes more games and is designed to prepare student-athletes for Varsity Athletics. 
     
    Sports are offered in three seasons, fall, winter, and spring, and vary by participation number and interest.

  • Varsity Athletics (Grades 9-12)

    Varsity Athletics are typically for Upper School students who have shown the perseverance necessary to commit to a higher level of academic and athletic challenges.  Their schedule typically includes both home and off-campus competition.  Though all interested students are encouraged to play, if an excessive number of students are interested in playing, a placement period may be held to determine the teams.  Student-athletes will be placed according to attitude, skill, experience, and familiarity with the game onto either a team or club.  Our teams compete independently, but adhere to National Federation of State High School Association rules and guidelines. 

    Sports are offered in three seasons, fall, winter, and spring, and vary by participation number and interest.
     
    In addition to athletic participation, in-season Varsity student-athletes are expected to participate in Strength and Conditioning time, as designated by their coach.  Out-of-season opportunities for training are also available.

Mission

Mustang Athletics is committed to excellence in athletics while supporting the educational mission of Currey Ingram Academy. We meet student-athletes at their individual skill levels and educational needs and provide a challenging environment for skill development in both team and individual sports. Mustang Athletics is connected to the whole student: academically, socially, emotionally and physically through intentional preparation and planning throughout the school day and season. We focus on creating opportunities for all student-athletes to develop skills through individual instruction, peer interaction and competition. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that our student-athletes' efforts to be their best will lead them to succeed.

Our mission is that all individuals associated with Mustang Athletics (coaches, staff, student-athletes, parents and alumni) will value character traits developed through athletic participation.

We expect all participants to respect themselves and others, demonstrate loyalty, be good teammates and put the team before themselves, handle failure like they handle success, have school pride, have a strong work ethic, be honest, and show up and be prepared.

Vision

Mustang Athletics will be a leader in modeling and implementing success and excellence in athletics and academics. We will intentionally engage the CIA family (student-athletes, alumni, coaches, faculty, staff, parents, and community) in a way that cultivates school pride.
