Colorado Academy offers 16 varsity-level team sports sanctioned by the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA).
The CHSAA-sanctioned competitive sport offerings include baseball, basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, ice hockey, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, tennis, and volleyball. Non-competitive and non-CHSAA-sanctioned offerings include sports performance, racquetball, rock climbing, sports medicine, ultimate Frisbee, and yoga. 

Upper School students are encouraged to play at least one CHSAA team sport, and 85 percent of our students do so. Some Upper School students are three-sport athletes, playing a CA team sport each trimester of the year. Upper School students are encouraged and supported to exceed the minimum requirement of two trimesters of athletics during their Freshman and Sophomore years and one trimester of athletics in their Junior and Senior years, for a total of six trimesters.

Independent Sports Credit

CA offers Independent Sports Credit, with a maximum of one trimester in any single school year. The credit will be granted only for activities not already offered by CA’s Athletics Department. That is, student-athletes will not receive credit for playing on club teams when CA offers the same sport or activity during a concurrent season, nor will CA offer credit for a student-athlete in a sport that CA offers if that student doesn’t play on the CA team.

Six of ten hours per week must be taken Monday-Thursday with direct supervision by a sport/activity-specific coach who must submit a participation grade at the end of the trimester. An activity that demands only weekend hours does not qualify for independent credit.
