11/13 UPDATE: The coordinator review of the basketball schedule was finished last night. We will be making changes to the schedule today and then freezing the schedule until Friday morning at which time the schedule will be released to everyone on the web site.

Basketball Season Update

The preliminary schedule for the 2018-19 basketball season is complete and has been reviewed by all coordinators.  The schedule will be frozen until Friday morning, at which time it will be released to everyone on the web site.

All parishes/schools were sent an email on the evening of November 9th providing details on the schedule review process which must be completed by midnight on November 12th.  If you are a basketball coordinator and did NOT receive this email, please email the league.

In the meantime, parents should be filling out Liability Waivers (girls who played in fall volleyball DO NOT need a waiver for basketball) and parishes should be submitting rosters to the league.

Also please checkout tournaments that our parishes and schools are hosting on the boys league page and girls league page.


Next Member Meeting Wednesday, 11/28

Our next member meeting will take place this Wednesday, November 28th at the Boy Scout Center in Evendale, time TBA but will either by 6:30pm or 7pm.  A more detailed agenda will be available the week of the meeting but tentative topics to discuss are:

  1. Winter Basketball Update
  2. League Leadership

This is a very important meeting, please make sure you have at least one member of your parish leadership team in attendance.


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 new Leagues menu.

Also as a reminder, the maximum gate fee that a parish/school may charge is $5/family, $3/adult, and $1/child

Key Information


For better service, please use our new 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

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.
