Athletics, Recreation & Aquatics
These programs are designed to encourage practice, teamwork, effective use of leisure time, transferable leadership skills, work ethic, healthy sportsmanship, physical growth and the development of fundamental skills. The Club is a great place for kids to discover and nurture their inner athlete with swimming lessons, a traveling basketball team, and sports for all levels.
GSGBC’s Sports Program provides healthy and active lifestyle choices while developing and building the skills and confidence of young athletes. The main purpose is to teach children and young adults life skills through athletics. Intramural teams are formed around age and similar athletic ability, with particular sports being played during certain seasons. Youth can progress onto GSGBC’s select athletic teams, in which they compete with other clubs and schools from the Saint Louis Metropolitan area.
This area provides an opportunity for kids to relax, socialize, and take advantage of the Club’s billiards, table tennis, board games, video game room, and bumper-pool and air-hockey tables.
GSGBC has an indoor, Olympic-size swimming pool. All youth are required to take on-site basic swimming classes and be proficient in treading water, floating, and basic strokes. The Aquatics Program offers instructional classes for youth of all ages. Recreational swimming, and swim meets are also offered.
