Building Confidence and Values Through Teamwork
Athletics are a valuable tool to help children succeed. They build confidence, inspire, teach leadership values, and much more! Students have P.E. class during the week and recess time daily.
Patriot's Team Sports
Students in grades 5-8 are eligible to participate in after-school competitive team sports. GCA is a member of the Cactus Christian Schools League. Teams are arranged in a varsity, junior varsity format (when applicable). Participation in athletics is decided upon by a tryout process. Sport seasons are approximately ten weeks in duration and consist of practices, home and away games, and tournaments. The arrangement of seasonal sports is as follows:
- Co-Ed: Soccer, Golf, and Cross Country
- Girls: Volleyball, Softball, Basketball and Cheer
- Boys: Baseball and Basketball
Jr. Patriots is a non-competitive after school program for kindergarten-4th grade students. Jump Rope, Soccer, Flag Football, Basketball, and Dodgeball are just a few of the sports that have been available. This 5 week club has become one of the biggest community activities for our families.
