Denver South High School is excited and honored to continue its partnership with 2-4-1 Sports to offer such a unique and celebrated summer sports camp! South’s athletic program is one of the very best in the Denver Public Schools, if not  the state.  A tradition of excellence that started in the 1920’s continues today as the mighty Rebels compete for league and state championships year after year and do so with the highest levels of class and sportsmanship.   An incredibly inclusive program, South offers 23 varsity sports through which nearly 700 students participate each school year.  South Athletics shares the 2-4-1 Sports philosophy as student-athletes at South are strongly encouraged to be multi-sport athletes giving them the opportunity to reap the many benefits offered by this experience.  At the heart of our programs you will find passionate coaches who care about the young people they coach and their development as a whole person as much as the final outcomes on the scoreboard.  At 2-4-1 Denver South, our Head and Assistant High School Coaches will offer top notch instruction along with our High School Athlete counselors who will bring the FUN and enthusiasm that make summer sports camp a great experience!

 

Come and be a part of the 2-4-1 spirit of excellence.
