11/24 UPDATE: St. Margaret of York has decided to cancel all basketball games for the first weekend of the season (this includes home and away games). Coaches will receive a notification via the web site. We encourage coordinators to edit their own accounts and subscribe to game change notifications for their home gyms as well as their teams so that they can also be made aware of changes to the schedule such as these. As a reminder, parishes cancelling (postponing) games are responsible to try and work out a reschedule with their opponents if possible. Gym time is at a premium this year so it will not be possible more often than not.

In regards to away gyms, if a game cancellation is the first or last game of the day, or is in the middle of the day, the league will not be doing anything about that. If the game is the second of the day or second to last of the day, we will move the first or last game up or back to close the gap in the schedule. We will not be asking permission for these types of changes, everyone needs to be flexible this season and read their email to see the game change notifications to which all coaches have been subscribed. We will NOT be closing gaps in gym time under any circumstance when a cancellation is made within a few days of the game. It causes too much confusion.

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:
  • 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.

    Basketball Season Schedules Now Available

    The full season schedule for girls and boys basketball is now available (11/17 8pm).  These schedules were reviewed by the coordinators from each parish/school and feedback was provided to the league before the schedule was finalized.  Thank you to all 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.

    League Attendance Policies

    Per the Health and Safety Guidelines for all GCCYS 2020-21 school season sports, each player can have a maximum of two adults attend their games this season (yes, coaches and assistant coaches count towards this total). However, there are some facilities that, due to their size, have different more stringent guidelines.  Also, please note that when we say two adults, that means that nobody else can attend a game (no siblings, cousins, etc ...).  It doesn't matter who the adults are with the player (can be grandparents, etc ...) but no children.

    The following facilities will only allow ONE adult per player:

    1. All CHCA gyms (Middle School and Elementary School)
    2. Guardian Angels (Old gym only)
    3. St. Margaret of York (MPR only)
    4. Summit Country Day School
