    Boys Basketball Tournament

    The schedule for both boys tournaments are now available.

    Coaches, PLEASE REPORT YOUR TOURNAMENT SCORES IN A TIMELY MANNER.  Teams are advanced through the tournament based on a score being reported.  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.  Good luck to all teams!

    NEW this year is a physical bracket which shows teams as they advance through the tournament.  In years' past, we displayed a static bracket which showed the game times and the first round matchups.  This new bracket will show the teams as they advance through the tournament (scores must be logged to advance the teams on the bracket) and will also show the scores of completed games.  Please note that this is not a responsive bracket and while you can view it from a mobile device, it is best viewed from a computer or tablet.  Horizontal and vertical scroll bars are available to help you view the entire bracket. 

    Check out the links below.  You can also access this tournament information from the Post Season Tourney option on the Schedule menu.

    ** 5B Group C teams playing at Nativity on Saturday:  We have been informed that Nativity has a large funeral on Saturday morning.  This will not impact the gym, but the parking lot is being reserved for funeral parking.  There is plenty of street parking available immediately adjacent to the Nativity campus and specifically the gym on Pandora Avenue.  Please inform your families and ask them to park on the street.  Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for understanding.

    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.
