Greenville County Schools is hosting its first annual gathering of GCS Athletic Directors, coaches, players and families to kick off the start of the 2018-2019 sports season. The event will be held at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Thursday, July 26 starting at 6pm.

The program will begin at 7pm with a welcome and introduction from GCS Director of Athletics Darryl Nance. Speakers include Craig Brown, owner of the Greenville Drive, Beth Paul, CEO of Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Carlos Phillips, President of the Greenville Chamber, Sandi Morris, Greenville High graduate and Olympic pole vault silver medalist and Dr. Greg Dale, Sports Psychologist at Duke University.
