GVCS and Belfast to Merge Athletics

The GVCS and Belfast Boards of Education have committed to move forward with the combining of athletic programs for upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
 
After careful and long discussions between both Boards of Education and the Athletic Merger Committee, this was determined to be the most beneficial decision for our student-athletes in years to come. The merging of athletics will include all sports except Boys Basketball.
 
Combining programs offers a number of benefits to students from both schools, including:
  1. Allowing more opportunities for student-athletes to participate in appropriate grade levels: Varsity, Junior Varsity and Modified in all sports.
  2. Strengthening programs with low participation in both schools.
  3. Preserving all current GVCS/Belfast programs
  4. Proactively combining programs now rather than having to potentially eliminate programs in the future.
We’re excited about this merger of programs and look forward to a strong season of GVCS/Belfast Athletics in the fall.
