    New CHSAA Physical Evaluation Form and CHSAA Registration.


    1. New Information from CCHS regarding registering with CHSAA and then Completing the CCHS

    2. CHSAA is now REQUIRING everyone to fill out a registration form for them in order to participate.  Their registration does not “communicate” with our site so everyone will need to do that separately.  CHSAA say’s it only takes 45 seconds.  Everyone is required to do this before competing, or they will not be able to compete.  Below is the information:

    To participate as a high school athlete in Colorado, students are required by CCSD and the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) to create a student account in Arbiter Athlete. This platform will be the system for Academic Eligibility Filing and Document Transfer Management between schools and the state association.  Use this link to create your account: , create a student account. 

    Registering for Ice Hockey....

    When a student sets up his or her account, the student will select a Home School ( School of Attendance ) and then a Secondary school for Participation  (School playing at ). System will also allow payment options and if a player is a transfer provide participating school student information.


    The other major thing is that since we have a new registration process everyone will need to create a new account.  Your old one is not in existence as that system has gone away.  


    3. Players who will be registering to tryout for the Cherry Creek CHSAA Team should use the New Physical Evaluation Form if they have not had their physicals yet.

    If you already have your physical please fill out the Parent portion of the form and return along with the physical to the Cherry Creek High School Athletic Office. There are 4 pages and only need the 4th page uploaded or turned into the Athletic office. The other 3 pages can be left with the doctor or you can keep.

    Physicals can be uploaded online for your registration Now. You can avoid coming into the athletic office as you can Register, pay District fee, and upload physical online. You will receive an email verifying everything is complete once you are done.
