School Athletics at The Vanguard School

At The Vanguard School, we believe that the opportunity for participation in a variety of athletic and activities programs is a vital part of a student’s educational experiences.  Such participation is a privilege that carries with it responsibilities to the school, the activity, other students, and the athletes themselves.  The Vanguard School has been a CHSAA (Colorado High School Activities Association) member since January 2008.  We are a Class 3A school, competing in the Tri-Peaks League.

Our coaches are central to supporting The Vanguard School’s commitment to character education.  Coaches capitalize on teaching moments and integrate character education through their example and verbal reinforcements.  Our coaches are role models, who are always available to help Vanguard students grow in both their chosen athletic program and as virtuous leaders.

2020-21 Fall Sports

As we gear up for the 2020-21 school year, we are planning virtual information meetings for each of our junior high and high school fall sports.  During these meetings, coaches will be online to answer questions and provide information about summer workouts, registration procedures, starting dates, tryout procedures, season expectations, schedules and more!  To join a meeting, use the appropriate meeting link below at the scheduled date and time. You will be redirected to a Microsoft Teams window to join in on the conversation! 

If you have any questions regarding these meetings, please contact our athletic director, Joe Simboli.
