Athletics Announcement - August 12, 2022


Wow Jags. It is hard to believe that a full week of high school fall sports are already behind us………two weeks for golf. Impressive outings by our golf team who finished 9th and 10th at the first two tournaments of the season, led, so far, by senior Jack McLucas-Kinder who is working towards a sub 80 round. Today, our varsity softball team gets the school's program underway with a game against Thornton High School at the Broomfield Industrial Park just north of the school. First pitch is at 4:00pm on Clapper Field, so we hope you will make it out to support these hard-working girls. 

Junior high sports will begin next week with XC starting at 3:45 on Monday at the elementary school, volleyball during D-Block the first day of school, and boys’ soccer Wednesday at 3:30pm at the secondary school. Only athletes cleared by the athletic department will be able to practice, so make sure to complete your registration on the school website. With a number of student-athletes registering it can take upwards of 24 hours for your child to be cleared, so please register early. Once cleared you will receive an email stating your child will be able to attend practice.

With contests under way, we want to remind our community that you can purchase activity passes which will get you entry into ALL Jefferson Academy home regular season events. A student/senior pass is $35, adults pass $70 and a family pass $150. The cost to attend home contests at JA is $6 for adults and $4 for students over the course of the year. 

Finally, we want all our families to be aware that this year, all post-season CHSAA events will use digital ticketing only. At JA, you will still be able to pay in cash/credit, but some away venues and ALL post-season events will need a phone or electronic ticket for entry. Just an FYI for planning purposes as the year progresses and our amazing teams make playoff runs. 

For families who have student-athletes participating in fall sports we encourage you to register for the ‘notify me’ function of our new website and calendar program. By selecting to be notified, you will receive instant notifications of adjustments to practice and games as well as when additional events are added to your child’s schedule.

To do so, access the athletic calendar and select NOTIFY ME in the bottom right corner. You will want to select the overall sports calendar for your child; i.e:

  • Cross Country - HS
  • Cross Country - JH
  • Volleyball - HS
  • Volleyball - JH
  • Golf - Boys HS
  • Soccer - Boys HS
  • Soccer - Boys JH
  • Softball - Girls Varsity

Then, select the specific team your child is on, or the entire program should you choose to receive team specific updates. For example in volleyball:

  • Volleyball - Girls C
  • Volleyball - Girls JV
  • Volleyball - Girls MS Team A
  • Volleyball - Girls MS Team B
  • Volleyball - Girls Varsity

Here you also can select to view the current calendar for all events that are in the calendar for your child’s sport only even if you choose not to receive notifications. You can also download the APP to your phone on Playstore or iTunes to view the athletic calendars.

You can also subscribe to the specific sports calendar so it will sync to your own personal calendar. The Athletics Calandar link is located under Athletics tab -> Activity Calendar on the JA Secondary website. Click on 'View Schedules' on the right side of the screen. Select the sports that you want to subscribe to and click view. Once the schedule loads, click on the red Subscribe link in the top right hand corner.

We hope everyone has a great fall season and we wish all of our student athletes the best of luck!
