Welcome to our sports page. The Grande Innovation is proud to offer a variety of sports for our 5th-8th scholars. The sports offered as well as their timelines are listed below. Because of our awesome sponsors, all fees have been waived for our athletes! Check out these amazing local businesses!

For grades K-4, we offer our own Owlsome Soccer League in the spring. This is an intramural league coached by the parents of our little Owls. Game days will always be on Saturdays and always take place right here at GIA.
