  • If we need to cancel due to weather, I will send out an email. If you don't get an email from me, conditioning will go on as planned. 

Thank you to those that have turned in their paperwork. If you haven't turned your paperwork in yet, please do so this weekIf easier, you can scan it to me at tarak2169@hotmail.com.

GREATER CATHOLIC YOUTH LEAGUE (GCYL)

CYF plays Cincinnati parish schools that will become the GCL in high school football (Moeller, Elder, St. X, LaSalle, Roger Bacon, etc.).

Guiding Principles of the GCYL:

  • Catholic based - Live it and exhibit it
  • True non profit with complete transparency
  • A league dedicated to young people who participate in it. An organization to provide structure and fairness to the schools who are affiliated.
  • Committed to supporting and preserving parish programs of all sizes under one league entity city wide.
  • A league governed by an elected board of officials who provide each parish an opportunity to offer suggestions to change for the betterment of the kids who play in it.
  • Commitment to support parish booster organizations that presently do not have programs with an eye on creating parish based football opportunities for potential players.
  • Recognition of existing established programs in good standing with their existing leagues - NO ONE will be excluded.
  • GCYL is committed to providing an exceptional experience for our parish families.

These represent the standards set by the league for all 2,500 kids and families who participate in the GCYL.

The GCYL requires the Families of each Player to be an active Member at a Catholic Parish in the Diocese to be eligible to participate in the League.  The Player can go to a Public School and play if the Family is in a Parish.

Our 7th Grade Team plays in the NKMSL and their rule is all Players must attend a Parish Catholic School to participate.
