Jan 19th Update: Week 6 gets started on Friday. Planning is underway for the postseason tournament!

We will once again be operating under gym specific health and safety guidelines (same as girls volleyball season). All parishes/schools hosting games can update their gym policies from their Coordinator Portal and they will show up on our Gyms page.

Key Information

 

For better service, please use our 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
This page will contain information about camps/training that are offered by our member organizations or partners.

Camps/Training Page
The coach of the winning team is responsible for reporting the score of the game within 48 hours of the game being played.  Coaches can access score reporting from several places (after logging into their Coach account):
  • Report Scores menu option on the Portals->Coach menu
  • Report Score box in upper right corner of Coach Portal
  • My Team Schedule section of Coach Portal
  • Subscribe to Score Reporting Notifications and receive email with link on game day
  • 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.

    Game Reschedules

    As we are getting more and more COVID cases in our league and it is also cold and flu season, please read this reminder about postponing and rescheduling games.  Coaches should not reschedule their games, this is a job for coordinators who will work with their coaches.

    Postponing

    1. Games will be postponed due to illness, school event, or gym closure.
    2. Coordinators should contact the league as soon as they are aware of a legitimate reason to postpone the game
    3. NEW POLICY AS OF 1/17:  The league will attempt to fill any gaps in the schedule at the gym by moving the first or last game of the day into that gym slot if the postponement is communicated to the league before 10pm on Wednesday for Friday games, 10pm on Thursday for Saturday games, and 10pm on Friday for Sunday games.  Please note that if the gap is in the middle of the day for a gym with a large amount of games, we will most likely not fill the gap as we don't want to reschedule a game by 5 hours with only 2 days notice

    Rescheduling

    1. The coordinator of the team that postponed the game should get in touch with the coordinator of the opposing team to work out a reschedule
    2. Reschedules must be communicated to the league before Wednesday at 10pm for games that upcoming weekend
    3. Games must be rescheduled adjacent to an existing set of games. 
    4. Games can be rescheduled during the week (Monday and Wednesday nights are preferable) if at least two games are played that evening and must be communicated to the league at least 3 days before the game.

    Gym Protocols

    COVID protocols/policies for the 2021-22 season will be regulated by each individual facility. Please familiarize yourself with the different protocols at all game sites by going to our Gyms Page. Coordinators are responsible for updating this information from their Coordinator Portal by editing the gym in question and entering information in the Covid Info box.  If you do not see a policy listed for a gym, then you can assume there is no policy.  We have encouraged all coordinators to make sure there is clear signage at their facility to indicate any policies that are being enforced.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

    Game Day

    All parents should take a moment to read "10 Things Parents Need to Know" which is a great reminder to all. Coaches, if you need help tracking playing time for basketball, please print out and use the Basketball Player Tracker. League specific information is available under the Leagues menu.

    Also as a reminder, the maximum gate fee that a parish/school may charge is $5/family (meaning two adults for this year) or $3/adult
