Ten Things Parents Need to Know

Liability Waivers


In order for your child to participate in the GCCYS, ALL parents/guardians must fill out a Liability Waiver form for each of their children playing in our league once per school year.  We try to help out our coordinators by matching up waivers with roster entries so please double check the spelling of your child's last name, verify date of birth, and make sure you choose the correct organization.  Parents may begin filling out Liability Waivers for the 2020-21 school year on June 1st.
