The GCA Football Program instills and strengthens the core beliefs of the Christian Faith. The parallels between football and the personal walk each player has with Christ are endless. We teach to enhance their relationship with God and train them on how to serve God in a competitive environment. We are here to assist with the Spiritually, Mental, and Physical growth of each athlete in our program. Our program wants to create a consistently exciting and entertaining program that generates huge levels of support, pride, and tradition for all in our community to share.
