Letter from GCSD Athletics Director: Fall 2 sports to start

A message from GCSD Athletics Director David Austin:

Dear GCSD Families,

I am happy to report that last night, the GCSD Board of Education approved the Fall 2 sports season, including football, boys & girls volleyball, game day cheer and unified bowling. Practice is to begin as early as Sunday, March 7 . I emailed student-athletes in preparation for this approval yesterday evening.

To participate in Fall 2 Sports, athletes must:

  • Complete the Fall 2 Sports Signup form by 9 a.m. on Friday, March 5
  • Complete the required athletic participation forms. Please note that new health forms must be completed and submitted before each sports season. If a student participated in a winter sport this past season, they must submit new health forms for the Fall 2 season. Health History Forms cannot be completed/submitted earlier than 30 days before the start of the season.

More information about sports levels and Day 1 details.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in interscholastic sports this year. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is that we collectively do everything we can to stay safe. We’re in this together!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. On deck, after the Fall 2 sports season is the Spring season which includes baseball, softball, boys & girls lacrosse, boys & girls track and field, boys tennis and unified basketball. The Spring season will run from May 2- June 25 (Baseball begins on April 28). More information to come.

Thank you, and Go Dutchmen!
