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.

Our athletic program and activities are a supplement to the school’s academically rigorous curriculum.  These programs and activities strive to provide experiences that will help students develop physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.

In addition to the above references, The Vanguard School has provided additional forms below called ‘cautionary statements’ for participation in a particular sport.  These forms outline the inherent risks for each sport and offer tips for athletes to manage those risks, as well as prepare for and maintain proper fitness throughout the season.  Athletes and parents should read/review these informational forms during the registration process.  These forms do not need to be turned in to the athletics department, but parents and students will signify at the time of online registration that the applicable form(s) has/have been read and understood – a local school requirement.  Click on a link to access the applicable form(s) for your athlete(s).
