Our athletics program is an integral part of the overall GPCS program, providing secondary students with opportunities to learn and demonstrate Christian character such as self-discipline, commitment, perseverance, and fairness; to develop athletic skills; and to provide a Christian testimony to other families in the area.
GPCS currently fields five teams in three varsity sports. Our baseball team, boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, and boys’ and girls’ soccer teams all compete in the Maine Principals’ Association’s (MPA) Southern Maine Region. All GPCS interscholastic athletic activities are governed by the rules and regulations established by the MPA. At the varsity level, teams strive to be as competitive as possible within our philosophy. Coach expectations are higher at this level. There is a greater time commitment (daily) and the possibility of an extended season due to play-offs and tournaments. Playing time will vary depending entirely on skill, attitude, and work ethic.
Middle School Program
We currently have a middle school soccer team (coed, open to students in grades 4 – 8) that plays in the Maine Christian School Sports League. We also have middle school basketball teams that play in local leagues. Our middle school track team competes in Western Maine Conference regular season meets. Sports at the middle school level are foundational and emphasize basic rules and skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork. Playing time will be as equal as possible but will also reflect skill, attitude, and work ethic.
