Great Sports, Great Kids

Great Sports, Great Kids

GRPS strives to develop exceptional, well-rounded student-athletes by fostering an athletics program that supports: academic achievement, overall improved school performance, athletic skill development, strengthened positive coach relationships and community service. The Great Sports, Great Kids youth sports program seeks volunteers to serve as coaches, game help, and other support for programming. Fifteen different sports are offered to students in grades 6-8 and four for elementary students.

The program is currently accepting volunteers for all elementary sports. Volunteers can be anyone who values a healthy community and are willing to do their part to create one. Volunteers are expected to teach and model healthy behaviors, represent a healthy community, supervise children, and establish a strong connection through the GRPS family of schools model.

GRPS does require a short application process to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our children.
