  • Participants in this program will work with GMC's trained coaches and talented student-athletes to learn about sports, conditioning and life skills that will help them during games, as well as their daily lives. We encourage all of our participants to succeed in all aspects of their lives: education, positive goals setting, personal confidence, good sportsmanship, teamwork, and living a healthy lifestyle.

  • Each participant will also receive a FREE t-shirt and other promotional items during events.

  • The programs are free, but pre-registration is required. 


  • Sign up here to reserve your spot each year.

  • Literacy and Mathematics
    Book Club

  • Creative Writing & Journalism

  • Math, Science and Technology

  • Anti-bullying
