Excitement is in the air about the GEDS Golden Eagles athletic program. We are pleased to announce that students in grades 6-8 are invited to join our sports programs. Before your child is able to practice, they must submit a sports physical. These forms can be obtained from the office.
Our goal is to build a strong and reputable athletic program by providing a commitment to balancing competition, teamwork, and the values of Christ. We are a member of the Jacksonville Christian Athletic League and together we will emphasize positive teamwork and unity in a way that will prepare our students for a lifetime of service to others.
