Great Valley Community Organization
The Great Valley Community Organization (GVCO), formed in 2006, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a safe and friendly environment for the community's seniors and children to grow, learn, and have fun. GVCO primarily accomplishes this through two centrally located facilities: the Youth and Senior Center (located on Lancaster Avenue) and the indoor recreational facility (located on Bacton Hill Road). The Youth and Senior Center is an indoor multi-use community center designed for the use of local residents and charitable activities. The indoor recreational facility is home to the Great Valley Basketball league, Great Valley Volleyball League, Great Valley Junior Patriot Football League, Great Valley Cheer and several other athletic-centered activities and leagues. GVCO promotes participation and sportsmanship; unifies the residents of the Great Valley area to broaden the sense of community and belonging; and builds upon the foundation of home and school district values while building a stronger, more unified youth development program in the Great Valley area.
Great Valley Basketball League
The Great Valley Basketball League (GVBL) is designed to be an instructional youth basketball league for kids within the Great Valley School District, serving the 1st through 12th grades. The purpose of the program is to create a fun experience for the kids, playing and learning the game of basketball, while competing within their peers from the surrounding communities.
