As a member of the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference and the Virginia Independent School Athletic Association, Bishop Ireton offers students the opportunity to play various sports at a competitive level while learning the benefits of working as a team toward a common goal, and while building a strong sense of community. More than 75% of our students participate in a school sport and many of them participate in multiple sports during the school year.
Bishop Ireton offers 19 sports including football, volleyball, field hockey, cross country, soccer, basketball, cheerleading, swim and dive, wrestling, ice hockey, indoor track, baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis, track and field, golf and crew. Additionally, there are four “no cut” sports offered (cross country, indoor/winter track & field, crew and outdoor/spring track & field ). More information can be found on the website under the team pages.
Before a student can participate in a sport, he/she must have a completed VHSL physical.
