Message from the Athletic Director

On behalf of the entire Graham Grizzlies Athletic Department I would like to welcome all student athletes and families to our 13th High School Athletics Season. I would like to extend a special welcome to all the Mount Slesse families that are joining our Grizzlies Family this September for the first time.  GW Graham athletics is very excited to build new relationships with our new family of schools.   Our vision is to have our student athletes more and more involved through leadership and mentorship programs in our new feeder schools as this new community of schools continues to grow.

Once again this year, our goal is to provide meaningful elite athletic opportunities throughout the school year to allow our students to demonstrate Grizzlies PRIDE PASSION AND SPIRIT.   With change comes new exciting times of growth and expansion for our program.  We are excited to embrace the new opportunities that change will bring to GW Graham in the coming years.

We plan to continue to offer parents and the community with more and more ways to stay up to date with all the exciting daily news and events with all our teams and student athletes. With the launch of our new website we are excited to provide athletes and families with a new source of resources and daily information.

At GW Graham we promote the concept of STUDENT athlete.  The success we have in the classroom is what allows our athletes to succeed in sport.  We encourage students and parents to communicate with our excellent teaching staff throughout the school year.  Access the resources that are provided to you, strive to be do your very best, take risks, ask questions, and always know that the coaches and teachers at GW Graham are ALWAYS there to help no matter how big or small the challenge is.

Student Athletes of GW Graham; commit to accomplish what many think is impossible.  Strive to become 1% better everyday.  Be proud to wear Blue and White in victories and in defeat. Finally, and most important…ALWAYS…ALWAYS represent your school and community with respect, and a positive attitude. Everyday you come to Graham in 2018-19 do your very best to make our school a place people want to be.

On behalf of the entire Graham Athletics Department, I want to wish everyone a very successful 2018-19 season in sport, in the classroom and throughout the community.

GO GRIZZLIES GO!
