A season can last up to 7 weeks. Practices are announced by the coaches and usually start a week before the first game. Students play the surrounding Denver Public Middle Schools in the area. There are buses for students’ away games. The 8 teams with the best record in the district qualify for playoffs. For more information on athletics go to https://athletics.dpsk12.org.
All students are required to have a sports physical to participate in a district sponsored sport. Students are eligible for practice and games once this physical has been documented and the school has a copy on file (see below). All old athletics or outdated records will be shredded upon expiration and new physical, permission and emergency records will need to be re-submitted at the beginning of every school year.
Free sports physicals are available at any of Denver Health’s School Based Health Centers.
The closest School-Based Health Centers are:
