    CHSAA SPORTS SEASON B UPDATE

    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 11 – January 16: Allow indoor access to begin off-season conditioning and fitness.
    • January 14: Weight Certification for GW Wrestling Program (Coach Finesilver will share the schedule with registered wrestlers)
    • January 18: First official start date of CHSAA Season B – full participation as outlined by CHSAA and state health officials.
    • January 25: First contest

    Additional information regarding wrestling, ice hockey, 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.

    As we move into 2021, we look forward to providing a COVID safe environment for our student-athletes and coaches.  We will operate within the guidelines set forth by CHSAA and DPS.  Please note that depending on the COVID data and safety color level in Denver, DPS may have different guidelines/allowances from CHSAA and neighboring districts.  Please stay safe and healthy and do your part to help us offer sports at GW in 2021!

    If you have any questions, please email our athletic director at kevin_maguire@dpsk12.net. If you would like to learn more about our athletics program, please click HERE.
