Athletics at Kent Denver
Kent Denver's Athletics department offers a robust program for young student-athletes of any level or experience. In Athletics, we encourage teamwork, commitment, responsibility, sportsmanship, leadership and a competitive spirit.
"Participation in athletics encourages commitment, a sense of responsibility, good sportsmanship, teamwork, physical awareness, self-discipline, leadership and a competitive spirit," says Kent Denver's Director of Athletics Scott Yates. "Every student-athlete has the opportunity to have a successful and positive experience at Kent Denver. Our program provides a wonderful environment for student-teacher collaboration outside of the classroom. Many of our coaches are also members of our faculty, and the majority have been here for more than 10 years."
We offer 18 different sports of all levels for our Middle and Upper School student-athletes.
"The great thing about Kent Denver athletics is that we have a team for everybody," says Boys' Soccer Coach Arty Smith. "If you want to compete for a state championship, we have a team for you. If you want to run around on a beautiful fall afternoon with some friends and make new friends and get some exercise, we have a team for that as well."
Yates has been with the school for nearly 40 years. Under his leadership, our teams have gone on to win more than 50 State Championships in almost every sport we offer. Yates is also the varsity football coach. Under his leadership, our athletics department has had tremendous success.
