We would like to officially welcome Batavia Community Recreation League, Goshen Youth Basketball, and Rockwern Academy to the CPYBL. Other organizations are finalizing plans to join us. We look forward to working with you during the 2017-2018 season.
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.
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.

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.
