All athletes need to register online prior to August 6.  In order to run Cross Country this fall, you must have a current physical. You need a note from your doctor stating that you can participate in a sport.  Your physical is valid for one year from the date it is signed by your physician.  Please follow the directions during registration regarding submission of your physical.  Per CHSAA rules, athletes may not attend practice until all registration requirements are complete.

New this year – all parents and athletes must sign up for Arbiter Athlete.  There will be a link to Arbiter Athlete at the end of the registration page.  Please follow the link, and look for the PDF on Arbiter Athlete with instructions for the registration process.  As coaches do not have access to the registration site or Arbiter Athlete, please contact the Arvada West Athletic Secretary Ms. Bruna Lanaghan, if you have any questions.  She can be reached at 303-982-1308 or

As the process for registering and the Arbiter Athlete process are new, please have patience when registering your athlete for Cross Country.
