Welcome to Skinner and Denver Public School Prep-League Athletics. We are excited that your family and student/athlete has expressed interest in 2023-2024 athletics.
Skinner Middle School and the Denver Public School Prep-League provide sport programs for our middle school athletes. If your student(s) is interested in any of the sports listed below, please complete a sports physical, permission and emergency form and email these documents via a pdf format attachment to Robert Kelly prior to the beginning of the sport (if you haven’t submitted these forms for prior sports this year). Once the document has been completed for one sport, it will be good for all sports during this school year only, providing the sports physical is valid from the date of the examination.
Please wait until an announcement is made for the sign-up date for each season/sport has been made through the weekly family newsletter. We may not be able to offer all sport programs, based on the availability of coaches/teachers in the building.
Please note: The DPS Prep League does NOT provide athletic game transportation to and from middle school events.
Once the athletic paperwork is received, the athletic department will not make copies of documents for students/parents and other programs. Once the school year is over, all records will be destroyed because of confidential information.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t submitted the sports physical documents prior to this or for a recent sport, please complete the 3-part Physician Permission for athletic participation (sports physical, permission and emergency) paperwork. No student/athlete will be able to attend try-outs unless the Physician Permission, Parent Permission, Emergency Contact and Athlete’s Waiver of Liability forms have been completed and submitted to the Athletic Director.
