The winter basketball registration period is now closed. A meeting was held with parish coordinators on 10/18 to review placement of 6th-8th grade teams. Based on the results of that meeting, we will begin the scheduling process this weekend. Timelines for the boys and girls seasons can be seen on our league pages.

Girls Volleyball Tournament Schedules

The schedule is now available for the 3rd, 4th, and 8th grade tournaments.  All coaches have been sent an email reminding them about the tournament.  Coaches, PLEASE REPORT YOUR TOURNAMENT SCORES IN A TIMELY MANNER.  Teams are advanced through the tournament based on a score being reported.  If one of the teams wins the first two sets, a third set will NOT be played.  If your parish is hosting a championship or consolation game, you should be receiving an email from the league about trophy pickup and/or delivery.  All coaches will be sent an email on the day the schedule is released with information about the tournament.  Good luck to all teams!

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.
