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.
