Physicals & Required Forms
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 All old athletics or outdated records will be shredded upon expiration and new physical, permission and emergency records will need to be re-submitted at the beginning of every school year.
If you need information about where to go for a physical, please contact Mr. Kelly, Athletic Director. Free sports physicals are available at the Denver Health School Based Health Clinics at North High (720-423-2718) and Lake Middle School (720-424-0281). Call the number provided for an appointment.

All 3 parts of this form must be completed in full and turned into the Athletic Director ONLY, Robert Kelly and not to the coach of the specific sport. Click to download form: Physicians_Permit_Emergency_Card

  2. PARENTS PERMISSION (specify which sport/s)
  4. $25 PAY-TO-PLAY FEE (required upon making the team and prior to participating in the first game) for each individual sport

Please contact Mr. Kelly, Skinner Athletic Director at 720-424-1441 or with questions.

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 homework3. 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.

Practices and Games/Meets

Practices take place with a daily study hall from 2:50 – 3:20 pm to insure our students/athletes have some time to begin homework and uphold their academic expectations as a scholar. Practices will then be from 3:20 – 4:30 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and occasionally on Fridays. Game days vary throughout the week, and usually begin at 3:45 pm regardless if it is a home or away game. The final practice schedule and game schedule will be provided to student/athletes on the first day of practice and are developed by Denver Public Schools, not Skinner.
