What is HGRA?

HGRA is a 60-year tradition of bringing families, neighbors and friends together for enjoyable recreational activities.  HGRA is where kids learn the value of healthy competition in an environment that emphasizes participation, learning and fun.  HGRA parents often talk to us about their great memories of playing HGRA sports and they are thrilled that HGRA is still going strong for their kids. 

More about HGRA:

  • The Highland Groveland Recreation Association (HGRA) provides recreational sports activities for area youth and adults in a low-stress, low-cost and family-friendly environment. 
  • HGRA is a non-profit, mostly volunteer organization relying on registration fees and charitable donations to present sports programs each year. 
  • HGRA serves over 2,000 participants in our soccer, baseball and track programs.
  • HGRA provides summer employment for nearly 100 local high school and college students as referees, umpires, field staff, track and soccer coaches, and baseball instructors.
  • HGRA provides fun, affordable sports program for youth athletes and serve as an alternative option to elite, year-round programs. Multi-sport athletes enjoy the sport more, have a lesser risk for burnout, and tend to become lifelong sport participants.
