The Greater Cleveland Athletic Association (GCAA) is a group of dedicated volunteers that provide athletic programming to the youth of the area of Johnston County served by Cleveland Middle School and McGee's Crossroads Middle School and their feeder schools, Cleveland, McGee's, Polenta, and West View Elementary Schools.
