High School Activities

Activities Programs

Both JDHS and TMHS offer a full range of activities and athletics and are member schools of the Alaska School Activities Association (ASAA) and Region V.  All incoming freshmen are immediately eligible for first semester activities. Continued eligibility is determined by grade checks and semester grades.  

Students who transfer from one high school to another should be aware that there is a one year sit out period before participating in ASAA Varsity Level activities at another high school in Juneau. 

Check with each school to identify specific activities and athletics that are offered. Fall athletics often start prior to the first day of school.

YDHS and HomeBRIDGE students can participate in activities at either TMHS or JDHS.
