Absolutely, each sport has a predetermined number of spaces available and Garden City Academy of Sports classes are capped to maintain low student-to-teacher ratios.

While each Garden City Academy of Sports has different qualifications for participation, all of our sport programs share a common denominator in that athletic performance is not the determining frequently asked questions factor in acceptance.
