In so far as the soul is a force residing in the body;
it has therefore been said that the properties of the soul
depend of the condition of the body.
— Maimonides, Guide to the Perplexed Chapter 12
Athletics at Denver JDS
At Denver Jewish Day School our athletics embody who we are as a community. While our short-term goals of achieving success on the playing field are important, our coaches are always focused on one common goal — helping our students grow and mature into fine, young leaders on and off the playing field.
Students from all grades create one united community at Denver JDS, and our athletics program takes that dynamic to the next level. Teamwork, perseverance, communication, and leadership are all qualities we believe lead to future success in life, and we see these qualities shine on the court and playing fields every day. It is truly a unique way to witness the ruach (spirit) at our school.
Denver JDS is a member of the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA), and participates in interscholastic competition on a 1-A, District 8, and 5280 League level.
Our coaches take great pride in working with athletes at Denver JDS. Unlike larger school environments, our Class 1-A sports teams give our students an opportunity to form deep bonds and relationships with their coaches and teammates. COMING SOON: Get to know our coaches.
