1/18 Update: Two weekends remain for the girls season and the boys 3rd-5th season. As games continue to be postponed and rescheduled due to COVID issues, please make sure you are checking your schedule before the weekend each week. It is clear that not all games will be able to be rescheduled this season. We are still moving forward with a plan for the girls and boys 3rd-5th tournament that will take place from Feb 1st-7th.

Key Information

 

For better service, please use our Communication Form to communicate with the league. You can ask questions, share a positive experience, and report incidents of misconduct. By using the form, your questions will be routed to the appropriate people which will result in a quicker response to your questions and resolution of your issues!

Communication Form
This page will contain information about camps/training that are offered by our member organizations or partners.

Camps/Training Page
The coach of the winning team is responsible for reporting the score of the game within 48 hours of the game being played.  Coaches can access score reporting from several places:
  • Report Scores menu option on the Portals->Coach menu
  • Report Score box in upper right corner of Coach Portal
  • My Team Schedule section of Coach Portal
  • Subscribe to Score Reporting Notifications and receive email with link on game day
  • ALL parents/guardians must fill out the GCCYS Liability Waiver form for each of their children. A copy of the filled out form will be sent to the email address you specify on the waiver. In addition, after submitting the form, you may choose to print it out for your own records.

    Players will not be allowed to participate in league games until the waiver has been submitted. PLEASE NOTE, that a liability waiver only needs to be filled out once per school year. If your daughter participated in fall volleyball and is playing winter basketball, there is no need to fill out another form.

    If you create a user account before you fill out a waiver form, you can view and edit your form from your Subscriber Portal. You must be logged into the web site when you fill out your waiver form to take advantage of this.

    League Attendance Policies

    Per the Health and Safety Guidelines for all GCCYS 2020-21 school season sports, each player can have a maximum of two adults attend their games this season. However, there are some facilities that, due to their size, have different more stringent guidelines.  Also, please note that when we say two adults, that means that nobody else can attend a game (no siblings, cousins, etc ...).  It doesn't matter who the adults are with the player (can be grandparents, etc ...) but no children.

    The following facilities will only allow ONE adult per player:

    1. All CHCA gyms (Middle School and Elementary School)
    2. Guardian Angels (Old gym only)
    3. St. Margaret of York (MPR only)
    4. St. Mary (NEW as of 12/30/2020)
    5. Summit Country Day School

    Game Reschedules

    A reminder that all game reschedules need to be submitted to the league by 8pm on Wednesday nights for games taking place that weekend.  Our referee assignor needs time to manage this. Thanks!

    Game reschedules are worked by parish coordinators (the home team coordinator is responsible when rescheduling a game postponed due to gym closure) and submitted to the league for approval. When rescheduling games, please make them adjacent to an existing set of games at your school/parish or if that is not possible, please reschedule two or more games back-to-back. While not ideal, we will be able to get referees for weekday games if that is the only time available for your parish/school to host a game. Monday and Wednesday nights are preferable for our referees and please schedule 2 or more games together.

    If a game cancellation is the first or last game of the day, or is in the middle of the day, the league will not be doing anything about that.  If the game is the second of the day or second to last of the day, we will move the first or last game up or back to close the gap in the schedule.  We will not be asking permission for these types of changes, everyone needs to be flexible this season and read their email to see the game change notifications to which all coaches have been subscribed.  We will NOT be closing gaps in gym time under any circumstance when a cancellation is made within a few days of the game.  It causes too much confusion.

    GCCYS Health and Safety Guidelines - Basketball Season

    Please read updates to the GCCYS Health and Safety Guidelines and Rules Addendum for basketball and a recent winter sports update from the OHSAA

    Please read the GCCYS Health and Safety Guidelines for the 2020-21 basketball season as well as an addendum for the existing GCCYS Basketball rules.  For those parishes that did not sign the Health and Safety Guidelines during the fall volleyball season, they must do so to participate in the basketball season.  In addition, all parents must check a box on the GCCYS Liability Waiver indicating that they have read this document and agree to abide by its directives.

    All parents should take a moment to read "10 Things Parents Need to Know" which is a great reminder to all. Coaches, if you need help tracking playing time for basketball, please print out and use the Basketball Player Tracker. League specific information is available under the Leagues menu.

    Also as a reminder, the maximum gate fee that a parish/school may charge is $5/family (meaning two adults for this year) or $3/adult
