Welcome to Girls Volleyball!

 

Greater Cincinnati Catholic Youth Sports (GCCYS) is proud to host Cincinnati’s largest youth volleyball league. With over 300 teams and 2,500 girls participating, our youth volleyball program is firmly rooted in the Catholic faith tradition. The League, hosted each Fall, includes six grade levels (3rd-8th) and 4 skill levels for our 6th-8th graders. The League provides an outlet for girls to learn volleyball skills, while also developing their faith, self-confidence, and teamwork skills. Check with your local parish for sign-ups and team information.

League games are played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday over a six week period in the fall.  A season-ending single elimination tournament is played the second weekend in October.  Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.

Ten Things Parents Need to Know

Liability Waivers

 

In order for your child to participate in the GCCYS, ALL parents/guardians must fill out a Liability Waiver form for each of their children playing in our league once per school year.  We try to help out our coordinators by matching up waivers with roster entries so please double check the spelling of your child's last name, verify date of birth, and make sure you choose the correct organization.  Parents may begin filling out Liability Waivers for the 2020-21 school year on June 1st.

Frequently Asked Questions

Good question. For the fall season, matches are scheduled a bit differently to avoid potential conflicts with soccer and cheerleading activities (we do not schedule around specific games). Games will be scheduled in the following times based on gym availability and parish conflicts:

  1. Saturday 5pm - 9pm
  2. Friday 6pm - 9pm
  3. Sunday 5pm - 9pm
  4. Sunday 1pm - 5pm
  5. Saturday 9am - 5pm

  • 3rd/4th grade - 6ft
  • 5th grade - 6ft 6in
  • 6th grade - 7ft
  • 7th/8th grade - 7ft 4 1/8in
  • Team trophies are given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in our post-season tournament. T-shirts are available for purchase for regular season and tournament champions.

    A Liability Waiver is an on-line form must be filled out by a parent or guardian for each player that wishes to participate in our league one time per school year. The purpose of the waiver is to release the league of any liability in the case of an accident or improper conduct by players, coaches, or fans.

    Each parish/school may choose to charge admission for regular season and post-season tournament games. Some choose not to charge or charge less than the league max which is $5/family, $3/adult, and $1/child.

    Season Timeline

     
    The following timeline has been finalized and adopted for the 2020 girls volleyball season.

    Due to the schedule needing to be rebuilt as a result of further operating restrictions levied by the state of Ohio, the regular season will now be 7 weeks in length and end on October 11th. It is unknown at this time whether or not we will be able to execute a season ending tournament but if so, it will take place the following week/weekend.

    • Matches on Labor Day weekend this season!
    • Six week regular season
    • Season-ending tournament for all grades will be on one weekend
    • The tournament will take place from October 12-18. Please ignore the timeline.

    2020 League Tournament

     

    The season-ending league tournament, if we are able to hold a tournament, will take place from October 13th-18th. As a reminder, there are no longer consolation matches (3rd place) for girls volleyball as voted on by league members. A team trophy is given to the 1st and 2nd place team in each bracket.
