COVID UPDATES

CHSAA announced that the start date for Season B sports would be pushed back in response to the current statewide health conditions.  At this time, DPS has approved for us to move forward as outlined below.

In alignment with the start of CHSAA Season B, DPS schools will be allowed to operate the indoor Season B sports of boys and girls basketball, girls swimming and competitive cheer based on the following timeline only if we are not in red or purple on the CDPHE dial:

  • January 11th – January 16th allow indoor access to begin off-season conditioning and fitness
  • January 18th – first official start date of CHSAA Season B – full participation as outlined by CHSAA and state health officials
  • January 25th – first contest
  • Weight certification for wrestling will be scheduled for January 12th .
  • Outdoor voluntary off-season conditioning will continue as previously outlined for all sports.

Additional information regarding wrestling and sideline cheer will be made available as further guidance on variances and safety protocols become available from CDPHE/CHSAA.

Details regarding events will be shared as additional direction becomes available from CDPHE/CHSAA/local health department.

In alignment with CDPHE guidance, if Denver is in levels red or purple, we will NOT proceed with indoor access for conditioning and fitness or the start of CHSAA Season B.

Here are general and sport specific guidelines.

What is the current CHSAA sports schedule? Visit CHSAA for most current information. When information changes for CHSAA season dates they will post on their website. If Lancer athletics information changes we will post on this webpage (see above for most recent “COVID Updates”).

When and how do I register for a sport? If / when a sport is approved by DPS, FamilyID registration will open that sport. Once your sport opens, you will need to register, pay, and upload your current physical into FamilyID. If you are a freshman or new to ALHS, you will also need to register on Big Teams for eligibility purposes (see below). This is the same process as previous years with the change of uploading your physical instead of dropping it off at the athletics office. If you have questions or trouble uploading your physical please email a copy of your physical to nicole_medina@dpsk12.org.

  2. Students should locate and choose to participate at the school that offers the most options based on their interests.  (They should only be playing at their school of attendance and one other school).
  3. Students are encouraged to select the school closest to them based on school of attendance or home address.
  4. Once students have selected a school to participate with and established eligibility, any change in participation is considered an athletic move and will be subject to all CHSAA transfer rules and  policies.
