Hello Friends and Families of IABC!
First, a note to say we hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy during this crazy time for all of us. The disappointment of losing out on almost half of our school year and an entire season of sports has been extremely difficult, most especially for our Seniors. Our hearts go out to all of our kids this year who have missed so much, but most especially those kids who are graduating this year.
Second, we want to update you all about current Ingraham Athletic Booster Club plans. Obviously, with the rest of the school year being cancelled, our IABC events, the Family Social and the annual Ingy Awards, are also cancelled. We are working on a plan to deliver letters and pins to athletes in the fall when we all go back to school. Hopefully, some of our seniors will still be around to pick up their awards, otherwise please reach out and we will work with you to mail or pick up pins, felt letters and certificates.
We are also working on a revamped schedule for fall activities including the "Breakfast of Champions". As plans become more clear and schedules more firm, we will let you all know.
Our last request is we need more board members for the 2020-2021 school year! If you are interested in volunteering as a Liasion or Board member please reach out to us! We are currently looking for all levels of volunteers including: Co-President, Co-Vice President, Co-Treasurer and Co-Secretary.
With all school activities being canceled for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, there will be no spring sports.
In the meantime, please consider supporting the businesses that help support our students and athletes, such as our local restaurants and grocers, including Central Market, Jimmy John's, Chipotle, Pagliacci, I Sandwich, Ivar's, and many other businesses!
Take care of each other where you are until we can join each other in sport again!
Our Annual Meeting, including election of officers will be a virtual meeting via Zoom or Skype. Still TBD at time of this update.
Please plan to join the meeting.
We need more board members for the 2020-2021 school year! If you are interested in volunteering as a Sports Team Liaison (Team Rep to the Booster Club) or have a little more room for involvment as a Board member please reach out to us! Email Lisa White, Co-Secretary at: email@example.com with your level of interest or any questions.
We are currently looking for all levels of volunteers including: Co-President, Co-Vice President, Co-Treasurer and Co-Secretary. Click here and scroll down to get to the job description documents for the IABC Board Members & Liaison roles.
Please let us know ASAP if you (or anyone you want to nominate ;-) is interested! It's ok to not be sure and only inquire. This will not go on your "permanent record". We are a group of adults that are about making things easier for coaches and teams to be able to function efficiently and make sure their needs are being met.
The annual Ingy Awards, which were scheduled for June 8th are being canceled, due to the lack of pre-planning time to pull it off and the reduced likelihood of being able to gather publicly.
We will make a plan to distribute "I" chenille letters for first-time varsity athletes and sport pins for 2nd year letter earners, but will likely be with yearbook handout or in the fall. We will post updates.
If you're on Facebook, please ask to join the IngrahamRamFans group for IHS sports-related updates, info and images from our peoples as they happen.
this Instagram account has frequent updates and posts, all by Ingraham students. The Instagram account to follow is: theihsherd

How to get your hands on this stuff? Well, you could come to the next booster club meeting, the Ram Shack during basketball when open or email your order to email@example.com. We'll work out the details via email.
Letter jackets are making a comeback!
If your student athlete is requesting a jacket, Ingraham's supplier is National Achiever. They are located in Everett. Ingraham is in the drop-down list of schools on the link to letter jackets.
Cost shown for jacket before tax & extras is $242.95
Patches for available to order for your sport. FYI - The IABC purchases and gives away the "I" varsity letters and pins for sports at the Ingys each June, but if you didn't get yours last year, reach out to us at our email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Varsity athletes from 2018-19 fall, winter & spring sports will need to wait until the Ingy's this June 2019!)
IABC posts this link as a courtesy only. IABC does not profit from any orders placed to National Achiever.
Signs for business supporters - Do you have a retail/public business and want to display your Ram Pride? Email to ask us for one of these.

Order sports bag online and pay online via SchoolPay. (click link at left)

Students can pick up a pre-printed packet from the Main Office, or download the packet or pages from this website on the IHS Sports Paperwork page here.
Don't forget to pay the 2019-20 ASB fee of $50, and turn in a printout of your receipt (if paid online via SchoolPay on The Source) with your sports paperwork.
All paperwork must be printed and turned into the Athletic Secretary in the Main Office, Maria Medina. (there are no online submissions or emailing of packets at this time)
Please visit specific team pages for contact information and summer training schedules. If current info not listed, please use contact information for coaches or booster club liaisons to request information.
The online system called SchoolPay allows families to pay athletic fees online. You can access SchoolPay on your student's SOURCE account. It's easy to use and doesn't require a separate password. Cash and checks still accepted in Ms. Medina's office.
These would be payments like the ASB $50 fee. Ask your coach or parent reps whom to pay for specific fees if you are unsure. Some team funds are collected and will go through the team's booster club account (not part of SchoolPay).
THIS IS TOTALLY SEPARATE FROM THE BOOSTER CLUB's FINANCES. IABC/ingrahamathletics.org is posting this as a courtesy since IHS student athletes need to pay the ASB fee 1x/year, and they can pay through SchoolPay.
Any team fees or gear purchase specific personal checks must be made payable to:
Ingraham Athletic Booster Club or IABC
Team designations should be made in the Memo line at the bottom left of the check, not in the 'payable to' line.
If you want to order photos for school pictures or you want to order sports photos, go to the Yuen Lui page for Ingraham High School here. If you have any questions, please use the contact info provided on the Yuen Lui website's Ingraham home page.

If you made a donation in 2018, but did not receive a receipt (for tax deduction purposes), please email a description of your donation inquiry (approx donation date, event, form of payment) and send to the IABC Treasurer at email@example.com

If there is an injury that is sustained during a school team’s practice or game and it's not an emergency, it should be reported to Ingraham's Athletic Trainer, Jeff Wilson, or their respective coach before going to see the doctor.
Our trainer would never advise a parent or Athlete not to go to the doctor, but if they go to the doctor before seeing our Athletic Trainer, according to WIAA rules, he cannot clear them to return to play without a clearance note from the medical provider.
See Jeff first. Then go to doctor. OR
If you go to doctor before seeing Jeff, but make sure you have the note from doctor with clear remarks that they are cleared to play. The doctor note must be provided to Jeff, the trainer, before they return to play.
See Jeff's contact info on this page!
Jeff Wilson, ATC
Jeff Wilson - Ingraham Athletic Trainer
Hello Ingraham Athletic Families. Our Athletic Trainer for the 2019-20 school year, is Jeff Wilson. Look forward to meeting our newest Ingraham Athletics support team member if you are in a Fall Sport. You can email Jeff here.
Our athletic trainers are hired by Seattle Children's Hospital and work on a contract through SPS with our school.
Don't forget to visit the Athletic Trainer's pages on this website here.
Coaches will have this on their phones, but parents & community members may also wish to know that there is an app available to help locate the nearest AED. The app is called Pulsepoint AED.
An AED, automated external defibrillator, is a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).
The AED doesn't even need to be registered to appear.
The NCAA posts some stats on post-high school participation.
To be eligible to play Division 1 or 2 athletics, you need to apply for eligibility. See information here:
