Jan 23nd Update: Back to basketball .. hopefully we will have fairer skies this weekend for weekend #7 of the boys basketball season. We will have a tentative gym schedule out on Wednesday to all parishes/schools for the upcoming boys tournament. Also a reminder to coordinators, the league needs 3 days notice on game reschedules. Thanks!

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 (after logging into their Coach account):
  • 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.

    Boys Basketball Tournament Preliminary Gym Assignments

    The boys basketball tournament is fast approaching and we have put together a list of preliminary site assignments for the tournament.  These will be emailed to all parishes on January 26th.  Please note that when a time is listed such as 12pm-6, that means the first game starts at 12pm and the last game starts at 5pm, meaning that we hope the last game ends by 6pm.  All parishes/schools hosting on Sunday will be hosting championship games.  Those hosting championship games will be notified in a separate email.  Trophies will be available for pickup at All Saints beginning on Thursday evening, Feb 9.

    Game Day

    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

    Game Reschedules

    It is apparent that many have forgotten the specifics of the league reschedule policy.  Coordinators and coaches, please read to familiarize yourself with the policy.  Thanks.

    Postponing

    1. Games will be postponed due to illness, school event, or gym closure.  If a game cannot be played due to any other reason, it is considered a forfeit.  PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THE LEAGUE REQUESTING A RESCHEDULE BECAUSE PARENTS ARE CHOOSING TO TRAVEL OR CHOOSING TO PLAY IN A LACROSSE TOURNAMENT, etc ...
    2. Coordinators, not coaches, should contact the league as soon as they are aware of a legitimate reason to postpone the game
    3. The league will attempt to fill any gaps in the schedule at the gym by moving the first or last game of the day into that gym slot if the postponement is communicated to the league before 8pm on Tuesday for Friday games, 8pm on Wednesday for Saturday games, and 8pm on Thursday for Sunday games.  Please note that if the gap is in the middle of the day for a gym with a large amount of games, we will most likely not fill the gap as we don't want to reschedule a game by 5 hours with only 2 days notice

    Rescheduling

    1. The coordinator of the team that postponed the game should get in touch with the coordinator of the opposing team to work out a reschedule
    2. Reschedules must be communicated to the league before Wednesday at 10pm for games that upcoming weekend
    3. Games must be rescheduled adjacent to an existing set of games. 
    4. Games can be rescheduled during the week if a time during the weekend does not work out for both teams (Monday and Wednesday nights are preferable) if at least two games are played that evening and must be communicated to the league at least 3 days before the game.
