rSchoolParents of student-athletes participating in Monument Academy Athletics must complete and submit all necessary forms and documentation. Forms that Monument Academy requires are submitted online. The athletic coaches will contact you with tryout, practice, workout, and competition information. Login and register as quickly as possible to rSchool to register for athletic programs by clicking on the link: https://monumentacademy-ar.rschooltoday.com/ Some CCAL programs hold tryouts, and cuts may be necessary for these programs.
- You do NOT need to register/pay before tryouts have concluded and teams are chosen
- 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.
Physical FormStudent-athletes will not be allowed to participate in any Monument Academy athletic programs without a completed registration including all necessary documents, releases and payment. You can use any qualified doctor as the source for your sports physical, and many urgent care facilities will provide them for you without an appointment, and for a reasonable fee. Participation in CCAL Athletic Programs (including tryouts) is not possible without a physical that has been completed within the last year. Physicals are valid for 1 calendar year from the date of examination. Physical Form
How Do I Sign Up?Signing up for an athletic program is loosely a 3-step process. 1. We announce to the students in school that programs are coming up, and that there are sign-up sheets available for them to put their names on if they think they might be interested. An online “Intent to Participate” registration may take the place of paper signups as necessary. 2. Based on the sign-up sheets, Monument Academy coaches will contact parents of those students to introduce themselves. 3. Finally, should the parents agree with the student choices, they can register for a program online. For early fall programs, student-athletes place their names on the sign-up sheets before the end of the previous school year, the coaches communicate with the parents during the summer, and optional summer workouts are held for some programs. We are now accepting registrations online for early fall programs. If a student is new to the school, or has only recently decided that they are interested in participating in one of our programs there is NO PROBLEM, this is typical at the beginning of a new school year! Simply visit the specific program of interest on our website by visiting www.monumentacademy.net, hovering your mouse pointer over the “MA Athletics” tab and selecting the program you are interested in. You will find contact information for the head coach on each program’s landing page. Simply send the coach an e-mail alerting them to your interest, and show up on the first day of practice/tryouts with a completed online registration, or a valid athletic physical in hand! For programs that do not hold tryouts, late arrivals are OK, but there are situations where a certain number of practice sessions must be attended before a student-athlete can compete.
Contact the Athletic Director.

Central Colorado Athletic League (CCAL)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 (when available), but the league does not keep a record of season standings, and there is no playoff structure. CCAL Programs are offered to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade student-athletes with the exception of CCAL Football which is limited to students in 7th and 8th grade. More information can be found in the Student-Athlete Handbook CCAL Website

Concussion Baseline EvaluationConcussion awareness in athletics has improved over the years as more people begin to realize the seriousness of such injuries. Monument Academy has a concussion protocol that follows recommendations of the CDC. In addition to this protocol, Performance Pediatrics at the Human Performance Rehabilitation Center offers a Concussion Baseline Testing service as an aid to diagnose concussions, and evaluate the progress of an athlete that has suffered a concussion. If you would be interested in this type of service for your athlete, please visit www.pphpr.com to schedule a screening.
Game Day Attire / Athletic Spirit WearGame uniforms/jerseys that are appropriate for the school day may be worn on the day of an athletic event. In the case of a weekend event, game uniforms/jerseys may be worn on Friday. Some athletic uniforms require students to wear uniform attire or a white shirt underneath, others may require a school supplied program jacket to be worn over athletic uniforms. Monument Academy approved athletic spirit wear can be worn on MA spirit wear days only; program jackets can be work anytime.
Coaches NeededGood coaches are a vehicle by which our children learn the life and athletic skills necessary to grow. Often our coaches are also parents of children that attend Monument Academy, and as they grow up and move on, so do some of our coaches. Occasionally we will have openings for those that are interested in coaching. If you might have interest in coaching one of our sports, please contact the Athletic Director.
