Skinner Middle School Participates in all of the sports offered through the Denver Public Schools Prep League.  Practices, meets and games take place after school and occasionally on Saturdays.
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. If you need information about where to go for a physical, please contact Ms. Nenni, Athletic Director.  Skinner offers free sports physicals in the Spring and Fall.
Students must maintain their eligibility on a weekly basis to practice and participate in team games.  Students are responsible for bringing their signed eligibility progress reports to their coaches regarding the three standards of “Characteristics of a Successful Learner.” 3s and 4s must be reported on the weekly progress report during the sport season for students to be eligible for that week.
Characteristics of A Successful Learner:

1.    Student completes class work

2.    Student completes homework

3.    Student follows school and class rules

Participation Fee
Students must submit a $25 fee to the school treasurer for each season they participate in a sport.  The fee supplies referees at games, bus transportation to away games, uniforms, equipment, and a coach.
