Here are the registration forms for the 2018 Archdiocese of Los Angeles Academic Junior High Decathlon. Please download the files and return the registration forms.

School uniforms are required – this means that you may have a T-shirt, polo shirt, or AJHD school sweatshirt.

  1. The restriction on your school color is that it cannot be a neon color (The color palette of primary and secondary colors is a positive and recommended choice to make for all teams). Shirts must have mid-length sleeves. This means t-shirt or polo sleeve length. Tank top or sleeveless styles are prohibited.
  2. Text on the shirts is limited to your school name, your school mascot (i.e. St. Dymphna Lions), and the name(s) of your decathlon team member(s).
  3. Uniform school pants/skirts/skorts are required. Shorts are prohibited. Think “Mass Dress Uniform” and this will help all of your decathletes understand the dress code guidelines.
  4. Shoes must be “uniform type” (no flip flops, sandals, etc.). Shoes must be close-toed and backs.
There are no exceptions to the above. Decathletes should dress in a way that is respectful to all competitors.

Thank you one and all for your cooperation with the above policies. These were in place for the 2012 event and we received positive comments about a stricter “uniform” policy. We are proud of our schools and our decathletes and we are looking forward to a great 2015 event during the Year of Faith.
