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.
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. Soccer, Flag Football, Basketball, and Dodgeball are just a few of the sports that have been available. This 6-8 week club has become one of the biggest community activities for our families.
