The Dakota Ridge High School Level III program operates in conjunction with the Dakota Ridge Sports Association. The Dakota Ridge Sports Association Level III teams compete against Level III teams from other Jefferson County Public Schools.
Level III teams may be comprised of high school freshmen and sophomores, and the league is divided into three different competitive divisions: Centennial, National and American. The DRSA is responsible for the selection and placement of the teams. Players register through the Dakota Ridge Sports Association.
Practices coincide with the start of the high school season in late February, and games begin in mid-March and continue through mid-May. Games are played at local sites and at high schools in and around Jefferson County. The cost is determined yearly by the Dakota Ridge Sports Association Board of Directors.
