Welcome to the St. Gabriel Athletic Association web site. Another sports year is upon us and the previous year was very successful. This organization dedicates itself to the success of the children of this parish. The SGAA is very proud of them, and all student/athletes who participate in our sports programs. 

Fund raisers throughout the year continue to be successful, along with our recently added soccer tournament. Events like these help to keep our athletic fees low and provide funding for our teams to participate in city-wide tournaments throughout the year.

The purpose of this web site is to keep everyone informed on sign-ups for teams, uniform exchange, and updates on teams' performance. Go to the SGAA web pages>>
