Cheering for the Wildcats. Playing for the Wildcats. Athletic participation helps our children grow, learn, and enjoy themselves while they use and develop their personal, physical, and intellectual skills. GLAMFA values the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation: the pursuit of nobility and strength of character through personal development and teamwork, ethical and responsible behavior on and off the field, adherence to the spirit of rules as well as to their letter, leadership, and sportsmanship. We have respect for our opponents, we accept victory with humility, and we accept defeat with grace. In teaching these lessons to our children, GLAMFA instills habits which will help our children to lead better and healthier lives.
