Teams need to be confirmed to ADSL by October 26th! Please note there is an athletic fee of $85.00 upon registration.
- The basketball season will consist of one boys team, and one girls team with a minimum of 7 players on each team. Athletes will compete for positions on the team, yet will not get cut. All players will be accepted, yet playing time will be selective depending on effort and skill level.
- The season will officially kick off on November 5th with practices beginning at 3:45 to 5:15 with Coach Erickson and a boys coach. Practices will be held off campus in a gymnasium (TBA) on Monday, Wednesday, and a game every Thursday. The game schedule will be complete by November 5th and will consist of our team traveling to other schools with games beginning at 5pm. No practice or games will be held on Tuesday or Friday. Parents are responsible for transporting their athlete unless a carpool agreement is signed with other parents. Carpooling is the best and most efficient way to transport athletes on game days if you are unable to make a game.
- Games will begin the week of November 26th and go through February 8th. The end of season tournament will run from February 13th through the 23rd. The schools who are participating this season include Aurora Academy, Lotus School of Excellence, KIPP, GVA-Aurora, GVA-Northglenn, Highline Academy, Vanguard Classical School, VEGA, and Denver Language School
- Prior to the first official practice, you must print and sign the three athletic forms required by ADSL/GVA and turn them in to Ms. Erickson. These forms are found on the Middle School Athletics webpage. The three forms include a Sports Physical, Code of Conduct, and a Release of Liability. Ms. Erickson also has copies in her office. If your child participated in fall Cross Country, you do NOT need to fill these out a second time.
Ms. Erickson is in need of a volunteer(s) coach to help and assist with basketball practices and games. Experience and knowledge is a plus but not a requirement. This coaching opportunity will count for GVA’s school volunteer hours! Please contact Ms. EricksonASAP if you are interested.
