GIAS Sports Program
Through our Sports Program, we encourage students to develop their best abilities in the practice of sports.
The recreational sports program supports GIAS’s core values of growth, community, integrity, and caring by fostering the development of character, teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility, and a sense of fairness and respect.
GIAS aims to offer appropriate pathways for sporting development from Pk3 to Grade 12 in a wide range of individual and team sports. Sports offered include baseball, football, volleyball, running, swimming.
Sport is essential for GRESOL International-American School and a pillar in our educational system. Physical exercise is essential for the best development, both physical and mental, of our students and, therefore, we dedicate time, enthusiasm, and effort to offer the best activities and all the facilities so that everyone can enjoy them.
Sports practice involves living and growing with a series of essential values to form good citizens, such as teamwork, discipline, and the spirit of improvement. In order to extract the maximum benefit from the physical practice, Gresol has first-class facilities, cared for and adapted for our students and for various sports, such as soccer, baseball, dance, or American football.
