Mission Statement

The goal of the Immaculate Heart Academy Athletic Department is to provide our student-athletes with the opportunity to excel in the competitive environment of high school athletics with the help of encouraging teammates and great coaches.

Summer Athletic No Contact Period

Immaculate Heart Academy's No Contact Period will be from June 29, 2024 - July 7, 2024 in accordance with NJSIAA Policy. The goal of this policy is to establish a period in which the IHA Athletic Program does not practice, meet, or condition to ensure that student-athletes are not overburdened with excessive time commitments.



The start of the fall season is right around the corner and it is important for students to start the registration process now if they are planning to try out for any IHA team. The registration for all fall sports can be found in the link below. Please note that it is a lengthy process and students are encouraged to start early.

IHA Athletic Sports Fees will be applied to the student's tuition management account when the teams are selected after tryouts. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to the IHA coach listed below.
