2021-2022 UPDATE

Welcome to Skinner and Denver Public School Prep-League Athletics.  We are excited that your family and student/athlete has expressed interest in 2021-2022 athletics. In preparation for the 2021-2022 season, you must first have the documents listed below completed and submitted into the athletic director by the first week of the specific sport season.  

Please make a copy of all documents for your records and one copy will be recorded by the athletic director for all sports provided during athletic season.  The athletic director will not make a copy of the athletic records for future reference, or in case the family loses their copy.  All old athletic or outdated records will be shredded upon being expired, and a new physical, permission and emergency records will need to be resubmitted at the beginning of every school year.  The following documents are the required forms to be submitted:

  1. Physical form (up-to-date for the school year) turned into the main office for Robert Kelly, Athletic Director
  2. Parent permission form
  3. Emergency contact form (completely filled out)
  4. $25 pay-to-play fee (required upon making the team and prior to participating in the first game) for each individual sport

If the physical and parent permission/emergency contact form are not turned in, students will not be able to participate in any tryouts or practices.  Parents, please make a copy of your child’s physical form, in case you need it for another activity.  The school will not make a copy of the physical form for families, once submitted.
Please stay tuned for the date and time of the parent meetings from your student/athlete’s coach and Skinner weekly dialer to inform families of school and athletic functions.  If you have any questions prior to the first day of tryouts and practice, please feel free to contact me at or 720-424-1441.
Robert Kelly, Athletic Director
