Gladiators Athletic Association – Why GAA?
From the beginning, Johns Creek High School parents joined together to create an Athletic Association that would be unified in establishing a strong financial base for athletic funding. Every dollar needed to run athletic programs must be raised through donations and fundraising, so your membership support is vital in achieving that goal. Together we can raise, not only yearly athletic funding requirements, but capital dollars needed for long term projects without obligating future Johns Creek families to high levels of debt The GAA has already completed several capital improvement projects, is currently working on several more, and has still more in its sights over the next few years! Your membership is critical to those efforts! On behalf of every Athlete, Coach, Sport Club, Fan and GAA Board Member —- Thank you again for your support!
It is important to note that for any membership to GAA, 85% of the donation amount can be allocated directly back to your athletic club(s) of choice. The GAA operating budget is sustained with only 15% of membership fees and any additional GAA non-specific sports sponsorships.
What are examples of expenses GAA has covered in recent years:
- The GAA made the initial investment for all athletic departments to begin the successful creation of all of the sports we compete in today
- Lights for the tennis courts
