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 2023-24 school year on June 1st.

Frequently Asked Questions

The spring season is scheduled different than most as we look to avoid playing on the weekend. Most of the matches are played on Monday-Thursday evening with start times between 6pm and 8pm. Some matches will be played on Friday evenings but the league will avoid scheduling matches on Saturday and Sunday.

  • 3rd/4th grade - 6ft 6in
  • 5th/6th grade - 7ft
  • 7th/8th grade - 7ft 4 1/8in
  • Team trophies are given to 1st and 2nd place finishers in our post-season tournament. T-shirts are available for purchase for regular season and tournament champions.

    A Liability Waiver is an on-line form must be filled out by a parent or guardian for each player that wishes to participate in our league one time per school year. The purpose of the waiver is to release the league of any liability in the case of an accident or improper conduct by players, coaches, or fans.

    Each parish/school may choose to charge admission for regular season and post-season tournament games. Some choose not to charge or charge less than the league max which is $5/family, $3/adult, and $1/child.
