Our mission in athletics is to teach student-athletes both the fundamental skills necessary to be better athletes, and the fundamental character traits necessary to be better people. Sportsmanship will be the top priority of Lynx Athletics, and an expectation of all coaches, student-athletes, and parents!
Athletic programs are a natural infrastructure for the development of the character traits we value here at Monument Academy. We will focus as much on teaching our student-athletes good character as we will teaching them the technical skills necessary to compete in their respective athletic programs.
We have partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) to develop better athletes, and better people. Our coaches will work diligently to create this culture in all of our programs. Please see this video clip to gain a better understanding of the culture we are trying to implement here at Monument Academy! Better Athletes, Better People!
Monument Academy is a full member school in the Central Colorado Athletic League (CCAL), and will directly support the participation of student-athletes in this program. CCAL provides a competitive environment with a playoff structure for a school’s A-Team. Competitive events are also held for a school’s B-Team and C-Team, but the league does not keep a record of season standings, and there is no playoff structure. CCAL Programs are offered to all 7th and 8th grade student-athletes; 6th grade student-athletes cannot participate in CCAL Football. Some CCAL programs hold tryouts, and cuts may be necessary for these programs. If tryouts are held, you do NOT need to register/pay before tryouts have concluded and teams are chosen, but you must either have a valid athletic physical on file with us, or present a copy of a valid athletic physical in order to participate in tryouts. If you do not have a valid athletic physical on file with us, simply bring a copy to the first day of tryouts. More information about the CCAL program can be found in the Student-Athlete Handbook.
CCAL Cheer Program:
CCAL Cheer is offered to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade student-athletes. This program will hold tryouts, and If the level of interest exceeds our capacity cuts may be necessary for this program. You do NOT need to register before tryouts have concluded and teams are chosen, but you must either have a valid athletic physical on file with us or present a copy of a valid athletic physical in order to participate in tryouts. If you do not have a valid athletic physical on file with us, simply bring a copy to the first day of our clinic/tryout. The Monument Academy Cheer team will be active over multiple athletic seasons during the school year cheering at many of our athletic events. There is no set fee for the Cheer team, but there are considerable expenses related to equipment, uniforms, and competitive venues. Fundraisers help to offset some of these costs, more information will be communicated at a mandatory parent meeting. More information about this program can be found in the Student-Athlete Handbook.
Volunteer Parent Driver Registration Program:
Monument Academy does not have regular access to bus service, and relies on parent volunteers to transport student-athletes to competitive activities/events. If you are available to help, even if only occasionally, please register for the Volunteer Parent Driver Registration Program. Registration for this program will place you on a list of approved drivers that can help transport students to any school sponsored activities/events. Thank you!
Instructions for registering electronically, the Monument Academy Student-Athlete Handbook, Athletic Physical Form, and the "Permission to Release Driver Records to Self or Another Person" form required by the State of Colorado for volunteer parent drivers can be found in the "Links" section to the right.
