GTD Extended Summer Program

On July 21 the MIAA, which governs scholastic sports in Massachusetts, ruled that fall sports may not begin until September 14th. Tryouts and practices may not be held until that date.

In response, for athletes to maintain their conditioning fitness level from the end of the GTD summer program on August 16, we are offering an extended summer program.

The objective is to assure that athletes are healthy and strong when they begin high school sports on September 14th. The 4-week program will assure continuation of the summer's hard work with little to no risk of losing physical fitness or having a mental letdown.

Week 1, August 17-23
► Athletes will have an opportunity to give body and mind a short break with a program from Coach Braz sent via email and implemented at a time and location chosen by the athlete.
