Fellowship through Recreation
Gates Presbyterian has participated in a church volleyball league with two teams for over 20 years. We play against other local church teams at Fairbanks Elementary School in Churchville, New York. The teams are scheduled to play once a week beginning in early November until early April. The time is from either 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm OR 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The youngest age to play is 16 years of age and there is a coed requirement. The play is more fun and recreational than competitive. The cost per person for the entire season is nominal (less than $10 per person). Currently, Barb Snaith and Vicki Gutheil are the managers of the 2 GPC teams that participate. Contact the office if you’d like to join.
The GPC Women’s Softball team consists of girls as young as 14 and those young at heart willing to join us for a majority of the games (10-12 weeks) as we know conflicts arise. Games begin at 6:30 pm on Monday evenings with players arriving at 6:00 pm for warm up. Home games are played on our own field and the remaining games are played at other church facilities no more than 15 minutes from GPC (maps & directions provided). We look forward to beginning with a few outdoor practices (weather permitting) in the April/May timeframe. Practices are not required but help us join in fellowship & get some stretching, throwing & hitting in prior to the start of the season. Games typically begin mid-May and end with a playoff round and championship game in August. Contact the office if you’d like to join.
The GPC Men’s Softball Team is open to any interested men. Home games are played on our own field, with other games played at other churches nearby. Games usually begin mid-May and end with a playoff round and championship game in August. Contact the office for more information if you’d like to be part of this fun team!
