CURRENTLY, we are waiting for the Bishop's approval of a WINTER BASKETBALL PROGRAM. I will inform parents as soon as I have this information. I will know something by the end of October. Thank you for your patience.
Grace-St. Luke’s Church leadership team has been monitoring the ongoing developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in an effort to keep everyone safe and lower the risk of the spread of the coronavirus.
Each person’s safety and well-being are our priorities and Grace-St. Luke’s leadership team will continue to monitor and update you with this health situation as it pertains to out sports programs.

Our MISSION is to provide: player development through teaching sport fundamentals, athletic competition in a Christ-centered environment, teaching sportsmanship through meaningful playing time, coaching leadership, developing deeper friendships with players, parents and coaches and valuing the safety and wellbeing of all sports participants.
ALL TEAM ROSTERS WILL CHANGE FROM SEASON TO SEASON. The leagues we play in request balanced teams by age, grade and ability. They encourage players to play on different teams to experience a variety of coaching and player styles. Our players include GSL Church and School Parishioners and Students and many participants from the community and surrounding areas. Our policy is that each child play a minimum of 50% per game, e.g. a player will play a minimum of 2 quarters of a 4 quarter game
*Efforts are made with GSL Coaches and Leagues to accommodate multiple (overlapping) GSL Sports. Please refer to the GSL Church “Fairness Policy” (included on the online registrations and under "policies" on sports website) if you have any questions about practice attendance and game playing time.
