1. The current goal of the GCCAC is to operate with ten teams (2 divisions: east and west) Christian Schools. The current members have decided that the number of ten
schools would be a comfortable number for season and tournament play.
2. If a spot were available, the school wanting to be granted membership would need
to contact the Conference Commissioner and inform them of their interest prior to
the spring meeting held in April.
3. Schools applying for membership would then be voted on at the spring meeting,
and would be accepted or declined by a majority vote of the current members.
4. The Conference has the right to vote on any team in the Conference and to decide
whether to continue the relationship. (4-26-97)
5. Every team added to the Conference will be added on the basis on a one year
probation period, during which time that team and the Conference determines if the
relationship should continued. (4-26-97)
1. Students participating in the GCCAC must be actively seeking a full diploma from
the participating school, in order to participate in conference games of any kind. NO
SPORTS CLUBS! NO PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS!
2. Any student reaching his nineteenth birthday before September 1st, will be
3. Students participating in the GCCAC must be academically eligible. (The method
of academic eligibility is left up to each individual school. Coaches are encouraged to
set a standard and stay with it for the duration of the season.)
5. Any player who is disqualified during a game for unsportsman-like conduct, such
as inappropriate language and fighting, will be disqualified for his school's next
scheduled game. The Conference Commissioner should be informed of any
incident of this matter, immediately. If a player is disqualified a second time, he will
be suspended for the next two games.
6. Home school students may participate on a case-by-case decision, which will
be reviewed by the commissioner and a review committee.
GENERAL CONFERENCE RULES:
1. GCCAC schools are responsible for their own basketball schedule. Conference
schools should play each school in their division twice, for the games to count
for their conference record. Times and locations must be agreed upon by the two
schools involved. Tournament games will not be counted in the conference record
unless agreed upon by both member schools.
2. In the event of a cancellation, there should be as much notice as possible given to
the hosting school. If the hosting school feels they were treated unfairly, they may
request the Conference Coordinator to assess a $60.00 fine to be paid to the hosting
school. All fines will be determined at the spring meeting.
3. If the game is cancelled due to inclement weather, the schools involved must
agree to re-schedule for a later date. If the game is unable to be re-scheduled, the
game will be waived, and will not count on either teams' record for the season.
4. Each GCCAC member school is responsible for setting their own dress
standards. Members schools may choose to wear shorts or sweats for basketball
games, but no member school will be allowed to infringe their school's standards on
another GCCAC school. It is the suggestion of the Conference that each school
should work hard to keep their students dressed appropriately. In purchasing
uniforms, the school should use good taste.
5. These are the basic rules by which the GCCAC currently operates. If a situation
would arise that these rules do not cover, a school should then turn to the OCSAA
handbook from which many of these rules were taken.
1. Hosting schools should plan and be prepared for all home basketball games.
2. The hosting school is responsible for furnishing competent officials, scorers, and
timekeepers. Both officials for all conference games must be experienced and
licensed (certified) by the state of Oklahoma. The same two officials should not be
used for each home game.
3. National Federation Rules will apply for all conference basketball games. Periods
should be eight minutes in length, and games should be played in a gym with a
regulation score clock, containing time, scores and periods.
1. No school may offer a scholarship or work-study program of any kind to a student
2. No school or school official may contact any player from another GCCAC school
to recruit that player to their school for athletics.
3. Any student may participate in the sports program of another GCCAC school,
provided that the student has left the current school in "good graces", that is not
under penalty for discipline, academic, or financial reasons.
4. Any student who has been dismissed from a member school for discipline,
academic, or financial reasons may not participate in the same sport for the duration
of that season (including post season play).
5. You are considered a coach acting in a recruiting process if you prearranged:
Transportation to or from any activity to discuss a student/athlete attending
Calls and visits made to a student/athlete or family member to discuss the
student attending your school.
Using active students/athletes from your school to do any of the above for the
purpose of enchanting a student to attend your school.
6. It is the suggestion of the Conference that if a student/athlete from another
GCCAC school contacts you concerning attending your school, that you inform the
Conference Commissioner immediately of the situation.
