Congratulations to Senior Aaliyah Robinson!  This past week she signed her letter of intent for Track and Field at Colorado State University.  Aaliyah will focus on the long jump and triple jump for the Green and Gold.

We are in a bittersweet transition here in our Athletics Department.  After 21 years of amazing contribution, Sharon Desjarlais has decided to retire.  She has seen us through six different Athletic Directors and an expansion from only a handful of teams to now almost 20.  Thank you for everything, Mrs. D!

With that, we are extremely excited to be bringing on Shayna Chichirico as the new Athletics Administrative Assistant.  Shayna comes over to us from the elementary where she was an EA with Mrs. Cole and has also helped coach our junior high girls volleyball and basketball teams with Coach Runyon.  Now you can direct all of your scheduling and registration questions to Mrs. Chichirico at

With all of these weather-related changes be sure to bookmark the schedules.

Schedules for Season D.

Don’t forget that all of our home games can be viewed online for free.  All of our games held on the field can be seen at  You do not need a subscription but you will need to create an account.

With spring sports going into June this year, most of our sports won’t begin their summer programs until mid-June.  We will send out an update with all of our summer plans, but until then feel free to reach out to the coaches directly with any inquiries.  All of their contact information can be found on our Contact Our Coaches webpage.

Many counties have loosened up their COVID protocols in the last couple of weeks.  Restrictions are now determined at the county level rather than the State.  For our spectators at JA home games, masks will be optional as long as you are able to maintain 6-ft distancing.

You can support JA Athletics by helping to fill those empty spaces below our scoreboards.  We have spots available in our main gym, the auxiliary gym, and on the soccer/lacrosse field.  If you have a business interested in sponsoring a square check out our flyer or contact Craig Melville (  So far we have already had six of the spots filled but there are more if your business would like to show their support for JA Athletics.  We recently had the signs installed for our initial supporters and they look pretty good!  Be sure to check them out at our next home event.

If you are interested in getting a letter jacket, Sportline in Arvada is our provider for those.  You can visit their website for more information.
