Athletic Programs

Denver Prep Academy is excited to be one of the fastest-growing athletic powerhouses in the country, with an elite basketball team that attracts the best of the best. DPA is the perfect place for talented athletes to reach the next level. While we have started with basketball please see below of our plans to expand our athletic offerings.

One of the reasons behind the effectiveness of our program is our holistic approach to athletics. At DPA, we help student-athletes with proper nutrition, responsible strength and endurance training, and individual development. Through this and the guidance of knowledgeable coaches and trainers, our student-athletes are inspired to achieve greatness.

Our Elite Basketball Program

At DPA, basketball is always taken seriously. Student-athletes work under coaches who train them at elite levels. From the fundamentals to advanced techniques, from how to be a leader on the court to being the best possible teammate, our staff ensures that players have every opportunity to learn, grow, and become driven experts.

Denver Prep Academy currently offers two men’s basketball programs: The National Elite Team and the Post-Grad Elite Team.

Men’s National Elite Team

When students join the Denver Prep Academy Team, they aren’t just joining a private high school team. They’re joining an institution dedicated to the development of world-class players. At DPA, we develop athletes who not merely play the game—they understand it at a deeper level.

The players at our Colorado preparatory academy put this training to good use in the Grind Session, an elite winter circuit of other top preparatory schools. The DPA team will test their mettle against these talented teams from around the United States and Canada.

Men’s Post-Grad Elite Team

Finding the right college and getting the best offer is vital to any student-athlete. The Post-Grad Elite Team Program at DPA is a one-year, post-high school program that empowers players to continue training, competing, and becoming the absolute best players they can be.

Through our training regimens and games played in the West Coast Prep Scholastic Conference—a recruiting hub for colleges—our student-athletes can become the type of players colleges love.

So, come be a part of DPA basketball today. Whether you’re getting ready to start your freshman year of high school or are looking to spend a gap year developing your skills, we’ve got you covered. Join one of our two Colorado preparatory academy’s basketball teams today!
