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.

2020-21 Season Timeline

 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all games will have a 15 minute gap in between them this year to allow parishes/schools to clean the gymnasium before the participants of the next game arrive. We are also not sure if any of our high school partners will be able to host games this year, thus we need to stagger the start of the season for different age groups in order to ensure we have enough gym availability to schedule a 10 game season for everyone.

  • All teams will play 10 games + tournament
  • 3rd-5th grades will begin in December and will play 5 games over 3 weekends with their remaining 5 games being played in January.
  • Two weeks off over Christmas break
  • 6th-8th grades begin on weekend of January 9th
  • 3rd-5th tournament played first weekend in February
  • 6th-8th grades will play 5 games over the last 3 weekends of the regular season and their other 5 games in the weeks preceding.
  • 6th-8th tournament played first weekend in March

League Tournament

 

The season-ending league tournament will take place from February 2-7 for grades 3-5 and 6th-8th girls and March 2-7 for boys grades 6th-8th. The Sunday of tournament weekend is reserved for championship games only. We will work around parish conflicts as best as we can but there is very limited time available for this tournament to be played. All teams participate in the tournament unless they notify the league by January 15th for February tournament and February 15th for March tournament. Schedules are published one week before the tournament begins. A team trophy is given to the 1st and 2nd team in each bracket. Boys championship games for 6th-8th grades are usually played at area high schools such as Moeller, McNicholas, St. Xavier, Purcell-Marian, and Roger Bacon.
