The GR Union Athletics Department strives to develop champions excelling in both the classroom and in competition.


We wholeheartedly believe in sports as a tool to improve self-esteem, encourage education, and positively impact not only one player, but an entire community. We know that being a winner is not just about performance on the field. It also means staying healthy, achieving academically, and finding satisfaction in all areas of life. Our athletes need access to study sessions, grade checks, team meals, rides to practice, and mentorship. 

The GR Union staff is in this for the long haul, but we can’t succeed on our own. 
 

In order to continue this important work, we need your help.


Our programs require support that just isn’t in the GRPS operating budget. Athletic facilities, team gear, equipment, coach salaries, food, fuel, and many other necessities cost money.

Therefore, our challenge is twofold:
 

• To change lives through athletics

• To raise funds that will support this important work


Through our fundraising efforts, we hope to build a first-rate athletics program from the ground up, giving many young people the chance to succeed. By making a difference in the lives of student athletes, we are sure to see a positive impact on the whole of GR Union High School, including higher levels of student achievement. We also anticipate a tremendous boost in team spirit and community pride, ultimately impacting our city as a whole.
 

Please join us in supporting the “Building Champions” campaign as we seek to bolster the development of young athletes and the communities they inspire.
