What is GGYA?
Besides promoting a healthy and strong physical body, team athletics teaches how to be a team player, overcome difficulties, and support and encourage one another.
GGYA is affordable ($50 for the first child; $45 for each additional child in family) and only requires a commitment of one day per week. All games and practices happen on Saturdays.
Our coaches are volunteers, either parents or college students, who really care about the children and teach the skills and rules of the games along with Christian sportsmanship. While the program is provided primarily for Greater Grace church-goers, it is open to friends, neighbors, family members and GGCA students as well. The soccer and baseball/T-ball leagues are operated in partnership with the Rock City Church under the banner of Christian Youth Athletics (CYA).
