Middle School Athletics
After classes end for the day, Kent Denver middle-schoolers meet for sports or other activities. This is an important time that allows students to try new things, deepen friendships, develop athletic skills and challenge their minds and bodies! Middle School athletics also give students an opportunity to preview the sports offered in the Upper School, meet their future coaches, and create relationships with teammates that will last through high school.
Middle School students are required to participate in sports activities in all three seasons, with practices held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
✭ = Theater Activities (Middle-schoolers may enroll in a maximum of two theater activities each year.)
To learn more about each of our 6–12 sports teams, please visit our Teams & Schedules page. Information about other Middle School sports activities, including Outdoor Education and PE, may be found in the 2021-22 Curriculum Guide.
Kent Denver supports the Association of Colorado Independent Schools (ACIS) philosophy for middle school athletics and shares common practices with our fellow ACIS members. Learn more by downloading the ACIS Middle School Athletics Mission Statement.
To support cohorting and allow a safe return to on-campus learning, Middle School sports are starting the year with cohort-based rotations through a number of sports offerings. Students should check Blackbaud to see their cohort group number.
