Web site accounts will be setup for organization coordinators once the league has received all information regarding your organization. Coordinators will receive an email from the league with information regarding their accounts. Organization coordinators will have access to a one page portal that gives them the ability to communicate with the league, other organizations, and their coaches. The portal also allows coordinators to setup their gym availability as well as maintain a schedule for gyms that they manage if they would like.

No, you do not. All team, schedule, standings, and gym direction information is all readily available from our main menu to any member of the public. However, if you would like to receive notifications about game schedule changes, tournament game results, weekly schedule reminders, and league or team announcements, please setup an account and subscribe to a team(s) to receive this type of information. You will also have access to a one page portal which will contain all of the information you might be interested regarding the team(s) you have subscribed to including schedule, standings, team stats, and roster information.

School/parish coordinators will register teams on the web site. Once the league has approved these teams, a web site account will be setup for each coach automatically based on the information provided by your coordinator (based on name and email address). You will receive an automated email from the web site notifying you of this. You may change your user name and/or password when you login to the web site for the first time.

There are several links on your portal that will allow you to perform multiple types of gym closures. You will be able to postpone all games scheduled for a specific day for a gym that you manage. You will also be able to postpone specific games for instance if you need to cancel morning games but feel you can have your facility open later in the day. Please note that when you close a facility, notifications are sent to all subscribers of teams that were scheduled top play in your facility that day.

Each member organization is responsible for communicating to the league when a gym has been closed. Gym closures that do not affect league game play do not have to be communicated to the league. When a gym has been closed that postpones scheduled league games, the following will occur: 1) a text message or email will be sent to all web site account holders that have subscribed to teams affected by the gym closure; 2) a message will be displayed on the front page of the web site listing all gyms that are currently closed; 3) a league announcement will be posted to the web site, tweeted to our Twitter account, and sent to all web site account holders that have subscribed to league announcements if all games for a specific day have been postponed. We've got you covered!

Yes. The following is taken from the League Structure document: "If a team does not show up to play or is unable to meet the requirements specified by GCCYS and/or the Archdiocese, the team will forfeit and be subject to a $50 fee. If a request to postpone or reschedule is provided less than 10 days in advance, a $50 fee is applied even if the game is rescheduled." If you know a game can't be played, please have your coordinator contact the league as soon as possible to postpone the game.

All changes to the schedule are made in real time on our web site. However, if you would like to be notified of games that are postponed, rescheduled, or canceled, setup a web site account and subscribe to a team(s) and to the notifications you would like to receive.

Not necessarily. The league will do the best it can to reschedule games that were postponed due to inclement weather. This decision will need to be made in conjunction with member organizations as the ability to reschedule games is largely dependent on the availability of gym time to play these games. Games will initially be marked as postponed on the schedule and will either be moved to a rescheduled status or a canceled status.

Please contact your coordinator if you either do not have enough players to field a team or none of the coaches can attend the game. The league will only entertain these types of requests in extreme circumstances. All teams were given the opportunity to communicate schedule conflicts before the season schedule was completed.

The GCCYS does not accept registrations from individual players or from teams, but instead works with local parishes/schools that are league members.
