2022-23 ISA Sports Calendar.pdf

In a press release, the Guam Department of Education announced the interscholastic sports schedule for this school year.


According to the release, "Changes were made to the calendar to address the following points:

  1. Football was moved to the 4th quarter due to a delayed shipment of football equipment.

  2. There is one quarter between rugby and football so that athletes can recover from potential injuries.

  3. Baseball and softball switched seasons so a girls’ sport could be included in the 4th quarter.

  4. Paddling moved to the 4th quarter at the request of the federation due to safety reasons.

  5. GWHS does not have a gym, thus, we could only have one gym per quarter. "
