Open Gym is Back!

Gordon athletics is pleased to announce the return of Open Gym during November!
Boys basketball open gym on Tuesdays, 10/31, 117, 11/14 with Damon Ray
Baseball open gym (mixed gender and outside) on Wednesdays, 11/1, 11/8, 11/15 with Greg Carson and Luke Anderson
Girls basketball open gym on Thursdays, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16 with Veronica Jutras

All open gyms will be from 3:20-4:30 and are offered to students in grades 5-8.  The cost is $12 per day/session (ex. girls basketball OG for all dates would cost $36).  Any student with a commitment to another after school program (theater, robotics, music lessons, SSAT prep) should prioritize attendance at that program. Families can choose to enroll their child in one, some or all dates.  REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Download the permission form here: Open Gym Permission

The baseball open gyms will be held outside unless it rains or the temperature drops below freezing so athletes should come dressed appropriately. If the weather does not cooperate the baseball open gyms will be canceled.

Equipment needed for basketball open gyms: sneakers and comfortable clothes                             

Equipment needed for baseball open gyms: baseball glove, cleats, comfortable clothes

Students can be picked up in the front circle after 4:30. Any student not signed out by a parent by 4:45 will be signed into the YAP program. 

Families can email Kristen Fraza at with questions.

Baseline concussion screening

Gordon is committed to raising awareness about the seriousness of concussions. Information on concussions for both parents and players, as well as Gordon's official policy on concussions, is linked below.
Prior to the athletics season, Gordon coaches complete an online concussion training program. Throughout the season, they are provided with additional support as well as head injury protocols by the school nurse. 

This year, the athletics department also wants to encourage parents to consult their child's primary care physician about the need for a baseline concussion screening. Depending on the child's involvement in after school sports and other activities, physicians may wish to make a recommendation for screening.

Please don't hesitate to contact Kristen Fraza, Athletic Director, or the school nurse Sandy Horton with any questions.
