A Note about The Fall
This fall will be different from any we've experienced, but no matter the disappointments we are focusing our energy on all that we have. We are grateful for our students who are full of life and ready to play, an Athletic Director and coaches who focus on all that we can safely do and our generous community that continues to support us. More than ever we need new members. Our student-athletes will need every bit of our combined creativity and enthusiasm to make this year happen. Consider joining a meeting (info below) or contacting us for more information.
We've been busy over these spring and summer months. A new flagpole is up and a dedications will be coming soon, Working with both Boys' and Girls' Soccer we have funded a solar scorboard for the upper grass fields. We were able to grant scholarships to the class of 2020, and we continue to communicate with coaches to find out how we can provide the "boost" for all of our teams for the upcoming seasons.
For those who would like, we continue to accept donations on-line through PayPal (donate button below), or you can mail a check to us at: GDABC, P.O. Box 1190, Groton, MA 01450.
Your donations go directly to the students. Because we are a 501(c)3 your donations are 100% tax deductible. As a qualifying non-profit, PayPal has given us a minimal admin/transfer fee and we work with vendors and community members to offset the costs of mailings and marketing. We are very grateful for your support. You make it all possible!
We wish you all strong health and days that bring you moments of peace and a bit of fun too. We look forward to when we can come together again and cheer on our teams. GO Crusaders!

A note from our membership
The Athletic Booster Club (the Athletic Boosters) exists to support all levels of sports, from intramural through Varsity, at both the Middle and High School levels. We are always interested in increasing our membership. The Athletic Boosters is a great way to stay involved with our student-athletes as they enjoy their high school years.
We meet monthly, typically on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm in the GDRHS Library. To be on our agenda please contact us. We accept funding requests through coaches and the Athletic Director as described in our Coaches' Corner.
We have open membership and welcome everyone with an interest in sports to attend our meetings. Whether you are a parent, athlete, coach, or community member - we welcome your participation. Membership and voting is described more specifically in About the Boosters.
GDATPLAY is a 501(c)3, formed by community members and committed to replacing/upgrading the GDRHS main playing field to turf. This large project is being managed by a group that is seperate from the GD Athletic Boosters. The Athletic Boosters are proud to support the project and the Board's efforts.
