Interscholastic Team Sports (girls and boys at the seventh- and eighth-grade level)

After-school interscholastic athletics provide an excellent forum for rigorous competition, while helping students develop a sense of loyalty, sportsmanship and teamwork. Interscholastic competitions provide an excellent compliment to the values outlined within the Gahanna-Jefferson Graduate Profile.

Intramural program (during the school day, traditionally during the lunch period)

The term “intramural” simply means “within the walls.” Such involvement is always under supervision and guidance of the intramural director and are age-appropriate. Students may participate in a variety of activities including kickball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and other sports. Our intramural program is all-inclusive and open to every student. In addition to further developing a sense of community within the school, the program provides students an opportunity to practice and internalize the skills, attitudes, and knowledge acquired in their physical education class.

The following forms must be completed by parent, student-athlete, medical examiner, and returned:
