Nov 29th Update: The basketball season kicks off this week. Coaches, make sure you can access your coach account in order to report scores for the upcoming weekend. Best of luck to all teams this season!

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.

    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.

    Coach Accounts

    On October 15th, all teams for basketball season were set to "Approved" status which triggers the creation of web site account for coaches (or an update to your existing account). If you received an email from the web site with account information but did not reply within 24 hours OR you never received an email, you need to claim your account. To do so, please request a new password by navigating to the Password Reset Page and enter the email address that your coordinator gave the league.

    If you are not sure which email address this is, then go to the Teams Page on the Organization menu and look for the email address associated with your team. When you request a new password, if the system does not recognize your email address or you never receive a subsequent email (it should happen within 30 minutes), please Contact Us and we will get it sorted out. Thanks!
