The first class that was inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame was in April of 1965. More than 200 sports figures have been inducted since. They not only include professional and college athletes, but also high school. The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Museum partnered with local academic institutions in order to involve students in the project.
Colorado's finest athletes, coaches, and industry leaders are inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame every year. These people have demonstrated characteristics of sportsmanship, leadership, courage, sacrifice, endurance, and power. Exhibits include: A Snapshot of Women in Sports, The Denver Broncos Franchise, Gallery of Legends, Kid's Zone, and Salute to the Inductees.
