Helping Hurricane Harvey/ Irma Victims

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

Hurricane Harvey hit the 210 mile corridor between Corpus Christi and Houston, Texas on Friday, August 25th. The hurricane is expected to go down as one of the worst flooding events in US history. This weekend, Hurricane Irma is scheduled to hit Florida, and could be the biggest storm to make landfall since Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

Many families have been displaced from their home, with no idea of when they will be allowed to return. When they are finally able to do so, there is much uncertainty as to what they will be returning to.

How can the GCCYS help? Below is a list of items you can bring to your child’s game on the weekend of September 8th-10th. The GCCYS board, along with your parish/ school Athletic Commission will then deliver the items to Matthew 25 Ministries, who is playing a key role in the disaster relief effort.

We will accept the following for disaster relief:

  1. Monetary Donations*: Donate online or mail checks to Matthew 25: Ministries, 11060 Kenwood Road, Cincinnati, OH 45242.
  2. Non-Perishable Food: PULL TOP canned vegetables, fruits etc.; ready to eat dry goods such as nuts, peanut butter, dried fruits, granola and trail mixes, jerky, ready to eat snacks; bottled water; ready- to-eat meals or MREs etc.
  3. Personal Care Products: Antibacterial soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo,body wash, deodorant, lotion etc.
  4. Cleaning supplies: Laundry detergents, general cleaner, sponges, bleach (powdered form is preferred), mops, scrub brushes, buckets, rubber gloves etc.
  5. Paper products: Toilet paper, paper towels etc.
  6. Baby and infant supplies: Diapers, wipes, diaper rash ointment, baby wash, baby shampoo, baby lotion etc.
  7. First-Aid items: Bandages, gauze, pads, first aid tape, antiseptic creams, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, latex gloves, instant cold packs etc.

*Donors who would like to designate their financial gifts for Hurricane Relief may do so by writing “Hurricane Relief” in the memo line of their check.

With your support, we can show how helpful the GCCYS can be when there are people in need!

Thank you,
The GCCYS Board

Archdiocese Statement - April 20th

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

Good morning,

A couple of months ago, at a youth sports League Leaders meeting, the idea was presented of the possibility of having more Archdiocesan involvement including oversight of liability for youth sports within the Archdiocese.

During the past couple of months, we have had ongoing conversations about this idea with pastors, deacons, coaches, spiritual liaisons, league leaders, athletic booster members, and others involved in youth sports in our Archdiocese. And after having these discussions, along with prayerful discernment on the part of the Archdiocesan staff, we have decided end pursuit of these ideas. We appreciate your patience and understanding these past couple of months and look forward to working together to provide ongoing opportunities for the youth and coaches to encounter Christ through sports.

Thanks,

Rod Dunlap
Associate Director of Sports Ministry
Office for Youth Evangelization and Discipleship
Archdiocese of Cincinnati
100 East Eight Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202

Inclement Weather Policy

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

As we are now fully entrenched in winter, please take a moment to read the GCCYS Inclement Weater Policy. As the GCCYS is informed of gym closings, this information will be shared on the front page of the web site. In addition, games will be marked as postponed or cancelled which will trigger email and SMS text notifications to those that subscribe to Game Status Change notifications for teams affected. If we have a very large weather event, the web site might be put into maintenance mode in order to handle traffic. If this is the case, listings of closed gyms will appear.

GCCYS Policy: Games/matches may be postponed due to extreme inclement weather where the safety of the coaches, players and spectators are at risk. It will be the responsibility of the parish/school site representative and coordinator, at the hosting school, to make the decision regarding the closing of their facility. The coordinator must provide notification to GCCYS a minimum of 90 minutes prior to the start of a game/match. All subsequent games/matches will be cancelled except in cases where it may be possible to re-open later in the day. If a host team's gym is open but the visiting team decides not to participate it will result in a forfeit. Request for postponement and reschedule will be accepted from coordinators only.

Here are several ways for the winning coach to log their game score.

  • Subscribe to the Score Reporting Reminder notification and receive an email during your game with a link to the report score form (most coaches were auto-subscribed to this)
  • Login to your Coach Portal and find games that need scores logged in the upper right hand corner of your portal
  • Login to your Coach Portal and log or edit your game scores from your team schedule
  • Your coordinator also has the ability to log your game scores if you are having difficulties
  • Please note that you must have an account with coach level access in order to access a Coach Portal or subscribe to the Score Reporting Reminder notification.

    A quick note about game statuses. A game starts out as "scheduled" and then when the game has been completed it will change to "completed" or "forfeited" if one of the teams does not show up. If one of the teams cannot make the scheduled game but the game will be rescheduled, it will be placed in "postponed" status. If the location or time of a game is changed, the status of the game will be changed to "rescheduled".

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    ALL HEAD COACHES AND ASSISTANT COACHES must complete the NFHS Concussion Training course before their first game. As a head coach, after you have completed the free, on-line training course on the NFHS web site, you can edit your coach account (after it has been created for you) on the GCCYS web site and specify the course completion date. This training is valid for up to 3 years upon completion of the course so if you have already completed the course in the past 3 years, you should simply enter your course completion date. In order to take the course, you must first register yourself and create an account on the NFHS web site. You will then be able to take the course.

    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.
