Elementary & Junior High School Athletic Program
The perspective student athlete at
The athletic program of GBS is an extension of the academic and physical education programs. Its main purpose is to help develop the physical, emotional, and scholastic advancement of the student, as well as, to allow those who are gifted in the different sports to excel. Participating on an athletic team is a privilege for those students who are interested and have the ability and the right attitude. Membership must be earned by the student through the maintenance of acceptable scholastic grades as well as irreproachable conduct in class and on the playing field.
It is our goal as a school and as a program to provide athletes with a chance to enjoy, develop, and compete in the sport of their choice. We will strive to create an environment that is safe, healthy, and enjoyable for all. Most importantly, we want to see the formation of Christ-like characteristics in every athlete.
We believe that school athletics exists to benefit students and that dignity, worth, and self-esteem of the individual should be paramount in athletic activities. We believe that winning is an attitude resulting from optimum preparation, concentrated effort, and a deep commitment to excel. We believe that open communication and mutual respect among coaches, parents, and athletes provide the foundation for a successful program. With these important components pulling together, both student growth and program quality will be enhanced.
Our school was founded to Honor God, and this is the main priority. As a member of a GBS team it is important to realize this priority and act on it. An athlete must live clean and play hard. We must win without boasting and lose without excuses, and we never quit!
