Athletics

The ICEF Public Schools Athletic Department has been participating in competitive sports since 1996, Soccer, Basketball, Rugby, and Football. In this short period of time, our coaching staff has been able to accomplish great things with our young athletes. Under the leadership of ICEF’s Athletic Director, Robert Ambers, our athletic teams have won a total of 6 championships in three years. Our titles include the following:
 
  • 2007-2008 CIF Los Angeles City Section Girls Basketball Champions
  • 2007-2008 CIF Los Angeles City Section Boys Basketball Champions
  • 2006-2007 CIF Los Angeles City Section Girls Basketball Champions
  • 2006 CIF Southern Section Football Champions
  • 2006-2007 CIF Los Angeles City Section Boys Basketball Champions
  • 2006-2007 CIF Southern California Boys Basketball Regional Champions
  • 2006-2007 CIF Boys Basketball State Runner Up

More important than winning games are the character lessons the athletes gain in the process. Mr. Ambers, a former player under famed football coach Eddie Robinson, strives to create a culture within each team of sportsmanship, leadership and respect.

The ICEF athletic department was recently rewarded for the time and effort they have put into the character building lessons for their athletes. In the spring of 2008, they were honored with the award for Outstanding Sportsmanship and Leadership and Pursuing Victory with Honor from the LA City Council for Character Counts in partnership with the CIF Los Angeles City Section. They were chosen for this award out of 105 other schools in the Los Angeles area.
