Sports Physicals 

Does your student need a sports physical?  The Health and Wellness Center at Centennial High School offers sports physicals/well child exams June through August. The Center can bill insurance and no child is ever turned away for inability to pay. For more information, visit the  https://hwcenter.org/ or call the office at (970) 488-4900.


Per CHSAA, student athletes must not have more than one failing grade (1.5 or below) to be eligible for competition play.  High School coaches may choose to implement higher standards in each sport.  If a student fails more than one high school class in the spring semester, they will be ineligible for competition until the CHSAA Fall Regain Date.  If a student fails more than one class in the fall semester, they will be ineligible for competition until the CHSAA Spring Regain Date.


High school practices are held from 4:15-6:15 M-F. Practices may be held in the morning & on Saturdays. Please reach out to coaches for most up to date information on practices. 


For $25 students can purchase an Activity Pass for access to all high school games and shows.  Follow the School Pay link in the menu.  A sticker will go on the student ID once this is complete.  This is available to all WMHS students for events where Wellington teams are playing in PSD.

PSD Ejection Policy for Spectators

Any spectator affiliated with PSD schools that is ejected or removed from an athletic venue due to poor sportsmanship will be placed on probation and not allowed to return to further PSD athletic events until the following have occurred:

  1. The individual meets with the building administration to discuss future expectations for behavior.
  2. The individual completes an approved NFHS Sportsmanship course.  The course is free and is available online.  A certificate of completion must be presented to the District Athletic Director as proof of meeting this requirement.

Repeated minor offenses or egregious acts of unsportsmanlike conduct including contact with an official, coach, staff member, opposing team members, throwing items onto court or floor, etc. will be grounds for law enforcement involvement and may be grounds for spectator to be permanently banned from all future PSD contests.
