INNOVATIONS Basketball Team
As part of the continuing mission to motivate, inspire and prepare students for the day-to-day rigors of an ever-changing world, Innovations High School would like to inform its fan base and the general public that the 2012-13 Boys Basketball Season will soon be upon us!!
Over the past four seasons, under the guidance and leadership of Coach Dolph Ireland, the Phoenix (formerly Bronzeville Bulldogs) have gone to two final fours and two championship games. The boys have won the 2008 Preseason Christmas Tournament and were named runner up in the CAAEL Alternative Schools Tournament Of Champions—all this, while maintaining an .815 winning percentage.
One of the key reasons of Phoenix success on the court is how the players carry themselves of off the court. The Phoenix Basketball player is to be a pillar in his community who provides the younger generation with an example by which excellence is achieved. It is this philosophy and attitude that has enabled many of the Phoenix basketball players to receive the Jim Stone Scholarship, which is given to those students who not only excel academically but also demonstrate leadership ability and citizenship.
It is through sportsmanship that the coach of Innovations not only provides the tools necessary for these young men to be great basketball players, but to be outstanding citizens in their communities. Phoenix basketball players live by the motto taught to them by their coach....Honor, Loyalty, Humbleness and Winning...This is the Way Of The Phoenix.
For any inquiries regarding the basketball team and its activities, contact Coach Ireland at 312-999.9360. We encourage and look forward to your support this season!!
INNOVATIONS Cheerleading Team
Though the school has had one for many years, our Innovations Cheerleading Team truly took off during the 2009-2010 school year, under the direction of Coach Andrea Turner. Our Cheerleading Team has historically consisted of between 8-12 members. Our team is made up of Innovations students who are excited and energetic about school, and who are willing to demonstrate the team effort needed to be a successful cheerleading team.
The expectations of an Innovations Cheerleader are as follows:
The student must have an 80% or better attendance record, and must maintain a 3.0 grade point average, or better. The student must be able to work well with others and demonstrate a moral, social, and scholastic responsibility to themselves as well as to others, and also hold themselves to a higher standard.
