After-school sports provide an opportunity for Middle and High School students to specialize in a sports-specific movement discipline. Emphasis is placed on character development through teamwork, sportsmanship, and meeting victory and defeat with equanimity and grace.

While teams will play to win, coaches are careful to play every player. Athletes are guided to reach their highest potential, while maintaining a balanced lifestyle that includes academics, the arts, and involvement in family and community activities. All students who can make a commitment to the athletic schedule become integral parts of the school team (there are no tryouts or cuts).

DWS is a member of the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA), and participates in inter-scholastic competition on a 1-A level. Girls Volleyball, Cross Country and Basketball, Boys Basketball and Cross Country, and co-ed Ultimate Frisbee are offered at the High School level. Afterschool sports are offered to Grade 6, 7 and 8 students. Younger students are encouraged to develop athletic skills in a less pressured, competitive environment. Middle School sports offered for girls are Volleyball, Basketball, and Cross Country. Middle School sports offered for boys are Basketball and Cross Country.


Please take a moment to read through the DWS Sports Handbook for official policies and procedures for all Spartans sports teams.
