The GICAA began its inaugural season in 2013.

The purpose for starting the GICAA is to promote high school and middle school athletics for students in Christian Schools, Independent Schools, as well as giving opportunities for athletic competition to those athletes who may receive a non-traditional education.  Although the GICAA will promote and encourage Christian values, the league will not have any direct affiliation with a particular school, church or any other organization.  This will eliminate any conflict of interest problems.  All divisions will have the schools and organizations within the division following the same rules.  This will level the playing field to ensure that each school or organization will have the same opportunities to reach their highest potential.  Nothing will be left vague or subject to interpretation by a third party.

The Goal of the GICAA​​

The goal of the GICAA is to create an environment where high school and middle school students can compete at their levels yet still be encouraged to grow in their faith.  The GICAA understands that its member schools, although they will be competing against each other, are all part of the same team (God’s team).  The GICAA desires to unite Christ-Centered schools, Independent Schools and Learning Centers who wish to impact and influence their students through athletics.  The GICAA member schools will work together to create a competitive athletic environment that honors God at all levels.  The GICAA and its members schools should strive to set a Godly example of excellence for other leagues to follow.
