Athletics School Closure FAQ

Athletics
Will there be a Spring Sports season after April 30th
The communication from CHSAA has been that they are still holding April 30th as a start date for Spring Athletics.  This is in contradiction to the fact that most school districts in Colorado have cancelled in-person instruction and student contact through the end of the 2020 school year.  Therefore it is a certainty that we will not have a 2020 Spring Sports season.  

Will students letter in varsity sports despite much of the season being canceled? 
Students who had completed tryouts and earned a spot on the varsity team will receive a varsity letter.  Coaches will also have discretion on lettering based on their specific sport.  

Will Spring teams host end of year banquets?
Spring teams will organize their end of year banquet celebrations once we receive clearance to have contact with students. 

Will Spring Sports participants receive pay to play refunds or credits?
Yes! DPS Athletics is issuing P2P refunds the week of April 6th.  The fee will be returned to the credit or debit card account that was used for payment.  Credits for a future season will not be issued.  Refunds only. 

Will Spring Senior Athletes have a Senior Day celebration? 
Yes! We love our Seniors and acknowledge that the loss of their final Spring season is an especially tough deal for them.  ALL DPS High Schools plan to celebrate our Senior Athletes the week of May 8th.  Stay tuned for more details as our Coaches plan for their respective celebrations… 

Will South have an Athletics Signing Day celebration? 
Yes! we plan to celebrate our college signees in a virtual event to take place the week of April 27th.  Those student-athletes and their families will be notified of the event and the community will be welcomed to attend virtually. More details to come… 

Can we still have team pictures?  
We are looking at scheduling team pictures as soon as we are able to have contact with our student-athletes.  Our hope is to host team pictures in conjunction with uniform collection. 

When will we hand in our uniforms?  
Once we receive clearance to meet with students we will schedule a date/time  for uniform collection. Our hope is to host team pictures in conjunction with uniform collection. In the meantime please take care of your uniform.  You are financially responsible for all of the gear that was issued to you. 

Will Coaches be planning off season programming for the summer? Yes! Your coaches are planning for the summer off season.  We are unsure of when we will be cleared for contact and use of our facilities, but we are sharing plans in hope that we will be back together this summer! 

Will Honor-Athletes be celebrated? 
We won’t be able to have a luncheon this Spring, but Honor-Athlete T-Shirts have been ordered and once we are cleared for contact…will be delivered to students who have earned the distinction this year (including spring athletes)!
