Incoming Freshmen

If your child is currently in 8th grade, planning to attend Arvada West High School in the fall, and wants to play sports, please be aware of the following.

Per CHSAA rules, coaches are restricted in communicating with incoming Freshmen until May 1st of each school year. They can speak with athletes and their parents in a group setting. However, they are not allowed to respond to your calls or emails until May 1st. If you have questions, please contact Athletic Secretary Bruna Lanaghan at (303) 982-1308.

After May 1, 8th grade students are allowed to practice with the team if there is an organized activity, as well as during the summer months prior to their Freshman year.

Many sports have summer conditioning and camps. Check the website for each sport’s “Camps” under the “More” tab.
