Tournament Planning

All coordinators were sent an email on January 14th asking for available gym time for the season-ending tournaments with the deadline for submission being Friday the 19th. We will be reviewing this information over the weekend and putting together a plan that we will communicate to the coordinators at our next meeting. As a reminder the tournament schedule is as follows:

  • Boys 3rd-5th: Feb 15-18
  • Boys 6th-8th: Feb 22-25
  • Girls 3rd-8th: Mar 1-4

    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.
