New Informational Pages

In anticipation of a large expansion in the off-season, we are putting together informational pages for Parents, Coaches, and Coordinators.  These pages will be refined over the course of the summer.  Please note that coaches and coordinators are also given access to portals which contain information about their own teams and organizations that is not visible to the public.

Looking for a League or a Team?

The Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League works with local communities and organizations to provide the best possible basketball experience for youth in the Southwest Ohio area. We are not in the business of creating teams so if you are looking for a team for your child, please contact your local government or school district who can point you in the right direction. Also, feel free to browse our Organizations page which contains information about our member communities including contact information.

If you are an organization or community that is thinking about joining us for the 2017-2018 season, we'd like to familiarize you with our value proposition. We feel that we offer the best youth basketball experience in the Southwest Ohio area, and we do not rest on our past accomplishments. As our founding members will attest to, we will be busy in the off season working towards an even better product for the 2017-2018 season. Please Contact Us with any questions you might have.

    Big League, Local Feel

    Competitive Balance

    All divisions will have teams at the top and bottom of the pack, but we strive to give our teams a fighting chance to compete. This starts with having teams play opponents in the same division so our rec teams will never play high-rec or athletic teams and visa-versa. Lopsided games do not benefit the development of our players.

    In addition to taking the time to initially place teams in the correct division, we will move teams during the winter break to the appropriate playing division, whether that be one division higher or lower based on the results of the first 3 weeks of the season.

    Smart Scheduling

    Great schedules provide the building blocks for a successful season. Our proprietary scheduling engine allows us to navigate the complexities of league scheduling and provides our members the best possible schedule for their facilities.

    We have the flexibility to continuously improve the scheduling process and take special circumstances into consideration for our members and head coaches who coach multiple teams. Our engine creates the right balance of home and away games for our members and also builds "sets" of games based on skill level so that we can provide the best referees for the right level of play.

    The CPYBL offers both an optional pre-season round robin tournament and a single elimination post season tournament for all members. The Preseason Shootout is an optional 3 game running clock tournament that allows coaches to evaluate their players in a game situation and start working on in-game strategies. We offer this for 3rd-6th grade athletic and recreational teams.

    Our February Madness post-season tournament gives all of our teams a chance to compete in a season-ending winner take all tournament. In order to level the playing field a bit, we create more tournament brackets than we do in the regular season to group more like teams together. In our recreational divisions, we combine teams across geographic pods and split that age group into as many as 5 different playing divisions. This year we had a single bracket that only had teams with a 1-9 or 0-10 record so even if your team didn't have a great season, they have a shot to finish the season with some success.
