Home / About the GAA

The Godwin Athletic Association (GAA) is the booster club for the Mills E. Godwin Eagles of Richmond, VA.  The operation of our association is conducted by our board of directors.

The Godwin Athletic Association is a non-profit organization as defined by IRS Section 501(c)(3) consisting of students, parents, grandparents, alumni, administrators, coaches, and friends of Godwin High School. Our mission is to encourage, support and actively contribute to the growth and continuing development of the total athletic program at Mills E. Godwin High School. We seek to develop camaraderie among our supporters and establish Godwin Athletics as the best program in the region.

Where will you see the GAA? Everywhere! We are represented at all Godwin sporting events. We run the concessions, sell the programs, supply refreshments for sports receptions, and call on volunteers to support all of our efforts.

Why do we do this? It is a very rewarding experience to watch Godwin student athletes compete and pursue their athletic goals while building relationships with the community in which Godwin resides.

Our Mission: To encourage, support and actively contribute to the growth and continuing development of the total athletic program at Mills E. Godwin High School.

Our Means: We accomplish our mission through the following means:

  • Association membership dues

  • Fall, Winter and Spring Program sales
  • Various individual and corporate donations of time and talent, materials, and/or financial consideration
  • Other fund raisers through the Ways and Means committee
