Gator Family,

I hope all of our families are enjoying their summers and recharging as we continue to overcome this pandemic and return to a new normal. Gates Athletic Association board members, coaches, and community members have been working hard to provide our youth with opportunities to play sports, make friends, and achieve success.

Spring sports have wrapped up and we would like to congratulate the Lady Gator 15U Softball Team on their Regular Season Championship, having gone undefeated under the tutelage of Coach Josh Field. We also would like to recognize Coach Phil Hager’s Pony Baseball Team on their undefeated season and championship as well. Great Job Gators!

We are now gearing up for Fall Sports to include Cheering and Football. Our Gator cheerleaders are hard at work with fundraisers and practices. Football is currently having live signups (check “Gates Gators Football” Facebook Page) at various times/dates, in addition to anytime online at, and preparing for the start of practice the morning (9-11) of Saturday August 7. Be sure to bring you Gator Football players out to practice and ready to work.

The health, safety and well-being of our Gator Families, in addition to transparency and communication, are the highest priorities of our Executive Board. As the President of the Gates Athletic Association, I am proud of our youth and excited for the future of our association. I look forward to engaging with all families, in all sports, and continuing to build upon the foundation set by our predecessors.

I would like to take this time to introduce our newest board members to the Gates Family. Candace Vaden is our new Cheer Director and has hit the ground running. Leon Brown is our new Girls Basketball Director and he is preparing to continue the Lady Gator Basketball tradition. Their contact info can be found on our association website.

As always, we are grateful for every Gator Family member out there and thankful for their continued dedication to the Gates Athletic Association and our mission to provide the best experience possible in all of our sports. Additionally, I would also like to thank all volunteers, past and present, for their dedication of time and resources to serve as Board Members, Coaches, Team Parents, and all other positions that make our association a success.

Please visit our website, for the latest information on current and upcoming events.
