Athletics and J-Club

The purpose of the Gehlen Catholic J-Club is to create a lasting & good relationship between all sports participants, parents, school, and community members. Our motto is “We Work So Our Kids Can Play.”

Voting members of the J-Club include the School Administrator, Athletic Director, President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and a representative or "rep" from each sport. We also have a representative for cheerleading, concessions, AAU, and Events Director. Officers serve a two-year term while the representatives serve for three years.

Monies raised by J-Club are invested in the junior high and high school athletic programs. J-Club typically meets the second Wednesday of each month in the Linda Freking Bouma Wellness Center. Reps stay in close contact with the coaches throughout the year and bring to the attention of J-Club any needs or concerns for the sports they represent to the J-Club.

Reps also help with J-Club’s fundraisers &/or events: Football Mania, J-Jams, Gates, Booster Drive, and tournaments. J-club reps are also encouraged to participate in the Homecoming Parade each fall.
