About TCBL

The Tidewater Catholic Basketball League promotes Catholic virtues in the spirit of basketball. Diligence, patience, and humility encourage teams to be steadfast through the obstacles of both sport and life, while building the knowledge of handling both victory and defeat with sportsmanship and grace. The TCBL serves the eight major Catholic schools of the Tidewater area: St. Gregory the Great, St. Matthew's, St. Patrick's, Star of the Sea, St. John the Apostle, St. Pius X, Christ the King, and Portsmouth Catholic Regional School.

Message from the President 

The TCBL will be following The Diocese of Richmond guidelines for COVID-19 during the 2021-2022 season. This includes masks to be worn by all players sitting on the bench as well as spectators attending. Players or fans feeling sick should not enter the building. Hosting schools may require stricter COVID-19 prevention than the diocesan guidelines. Failure to abide by diocesan standards may result in action by the TCBL Board, up to and including game forfeiture. 

Thank you and God bless,

Johnny Hedinger
