11/21 Update: A FEW GAMES HAVE BEEN MOVED SINCE THE SCHEDULE WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 11/19. PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCHEDULE! From this point forward, any potential game changes will be discussed with coaches and coordinators and we are now turning on game change notifications if you subscribe to those for your team or a specific gym.

Boys and Girls Basketball Schedules Now Available

The full season schedule for both boys and girls basketball is now available (11/19 7pm).  These schedules were reviewed by the coordinators from each parish and feedback was provided to the league before the schedule was finalized.  Thank you to all parish coordinators for their feedback, almost all of which was incorporated into the schedule.

Schedules can be found in a variety of formats from the Schedule menu (by Team, by Date, by Gym).  If you are a coach, you can also view a pre-filtered version of the schedule which only shows your team from your Coach Portal.  Others who created an account on the web site and subscribed to a team or teams, can view those schedules on their Subscriber Portal.

An email will be sent to all coaches this evening notifying them of the publication of the schedule.  It is important to note that now that the schedule is live, making changes to it will be very difficult.  Any feedback a coach might have with the schedule should be directed to their parish coordinator and not the league.

Thanks and have a great season!

Lindsay's Law

The Ohio Department of Health has announced new legislation referred to as Lindsay's Law which addresses Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth athletes.  The law went into effect on August 1, 2017.  GCCYS sent an email to all parishes during the week of August 1st to provide guidance regarding how this should be implemented for our member coaches, athletes, and parents.  You can read more about Lindsay's Law on the Ohio Department of Health web site:   READ ABOUT LINDSAY'S LAW 

We have included links to resources below which might be helpful for our members, but please note that it is the obligation of the parish/school to make sure everyone for their program is trained and in compliance with the Ohio state law.


The following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:

For parents/guardians and youth athletes:

For coaches:

If you are a coach for an interscholastic sport and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education, please visit their website for information about their training requirements around Lindsay’s Law.

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.
