Welcome Coaches!

 

Welcome to our CPYBL Coaches page. If you are coaching in our league, we would like to thank you for volunteering your time for the youth of your community. You will find information on this page about league rules, your account, season timelines, notifications, liability waivers, and other helpful information.  Please note that all coaches have access to a Coach Portal that allows them to log game scores and view their team schedules and rosters.  If you have any questions not answered here, please feel free to

Rules and Conduct

 

To participate in the CPYBL, we expect all parents, players, coaches, and referees to adhere to our codes of conduct. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the Coach Codes of Conduct.  We expect all coaches to conduct themselves in a manner becoming of a youth leader.  All individuals are responsible for their own behavior.  Our rules document is also available if you have any questions about the rules that govern our league.  Not knowing a league rule is not an excuse for violating a league rule.

Liability Waivers

 

In order for a child to participate in the Cincinnati Premier Youth Basketball League, ALL parents/guardians must fill out a Liability Waiver form for each of their children playing in our league.  We try to help out our coordinators by matching up waivers with roster entries so please double check the spelling of your child's name and make sure you choose the correct organization.  In order to be more helpful to our organization coordinators, waivers will be matched to roster entries based on three pieces of information this year:  organization name, player last name, player date of birth.

 

Liability Waiver Form

Coach Account

 

All coaches require special access to our web site in order to log game scores as well as have access to a portal with information about their team.  An account is created for each coach in late October after teams have been approved based on the email address used by their coordinator to register their team.  ANY ACCOUNT THAT A COACH CREATES FOR THEMSELVES WILL NOT HAVE COACH LEVEL PRIVILEGES initially but privileges will be given to that account automatically if it has the same email address used by your coordinator when registering your team.  This will occur when the team is approved in late October.  When you can see your team listed on the Standings page, this indicates that an account should have been created for you and you should have received an email from the web site.  You can enter your organization and email address below to check if a coach account exists for you.  If not, then contact us and we will get you setup!

Game Reschedules

 
Coaches, you have the opportunity to inform your coordinators of potential schedule conflicts for your team in October and we will work around them if they are valid issues (i.e. school event, etc ...). Once the schedule has been published in November, you must inform your coordinator if your team cannot play a scheduled game. Please don't reach out to the league directly unless it is a last minute cancellation due to illness or injury. If you need to cancel the day before OR the day of a game, please contact the other coach directly, then contact your coordinator, then contact the league. We need to know in order to inform our referee assignor. Your organization is subject to a cancellation fee if a game is cancelled within 7 days of game time. Thanks!

Notifications

 
The CPYBL offers a variety of email and SMS notifications for parents, coaches, and coordinators to keep them up to date with important information or to save them time when performing an administrative task such as logging a game score. If you would like to subscribe to notifications, please edit your account.

  • 10 week season
  • Two weeks off over winter break
  • Games played on Martin Luther King Jr. and Presidents Day weekends
  • Athletic teams typically play twice a weekend, once on Saturday and once on Sunday with an occasional Friday game
  • Recreational teams typically play once a weekend, mostly on Saturday but sometimes on Sunday and occasionally on Friday
  • Due to the increased size of the league, we are considering a two-week tournament format. More to come on that this fall
