Web site accounts will be setup for organization coordinators in September and October after the league has received all information regarding the organization. Coordinators will receive an email from the league with information regarding their accounts. Organization coordinators will have access to a one page portal that gives them the ability to communicate with the league, other organizations, and their coaches. The portal also allows coordinators to setup their gym availability as well as maintain a schedule for gyms that they manage if they would like.

There are several links on your portal that will allow you to perform multiple types of gym closures. You will be able to postpone all games scheduled for a specific day for a gym that you manage. You will also be able to postpone specific games for instance if you need to cancel morning games but feel you can have your facility open later in the day. Please note that when you close a facility, notifications are sent to all subscribers of teams that were scheduled top play in your facility that day.

Each member organization is responsible for communicating to the league when a gym has been closed. Gym closures that do not affect league game play do not have to be communicated to the league. When a gym has been closed that postpones scheduled league games, the following will occur: 1) a text message or email will be sent to all web site account holders that have subscribed to teams affected by the gym closure; 2) a message will be displayed on the front page of the web site listing all gyms that are currently closed; 3) a league announcement will be posted to the web site, tweeted to our Twitter account, and sent to all web site account holders that have subscribed to league announcements if all games for a specific day have been postponed. We've got you covered!

Not necessarily. The league will do the best it can to reschedule games that were postponed due to inclement weather. This decision will need to be made in conjunction with member organizations as the ability to reschedule games is largely dependent on the availability of gym time to play these games. Games will initially be marked as postponed on the schedule and will either be moved to a rescheduled status or a canceled status.

Coordinators can submit schedule conflicts for their coaches before the scheduling process began. Schedule conflicts are due this season by October 25th for 2nd-6th grade teams and November 15th for 7th-12th grade teams. After the schedule is released, coaches must contact their coordinators with a legitimate reason why the game cannot be played (illness, school function, head coach and all assistants cannot be at the game). The coordinator will contact the league to postpone the game and then contact the coordinator of the other team to try and reschedule the game. When a time and location have been determined for the reschedule, the coordinator should contact the league with the agreed upon information. Please note that any games cancelled within 7 days of the scheduled game will result in a $50 fee for the team that is cancelling. This money is to pay the referees for their missed game.

Our league does not accept registrations from individual players or from teams, but instead works with community organizations that are league members. If you are new to the area or do not know what basketball organization is available in your area, feel free to contact us and we will try to put you in touch with the appropriate organization that may or may not enter teams in our league.

We are interested in any community or school-based youth basketball organizations. The CPYBL offers multiple levels of recreational and athletic play for boys and girls ranging from 2nd grade through 12th grade. The expectation is that recreational teams will be assembled via a draft process and an athletic team will be hand-picked based on some type of tryout or evaluation process. Please contact Ben Goodyear at [email protected] if you would like to inquire further about the league.

The short answer is no. The league will not track game scores for 2nd grade teams and thus standings will not be kept for 2nd graders. All other teams should report their game scores.

The coach of the winning team should report their game score within 72 hours of the completion of the game. After 72 hours, we would welcome the coach of the losing team to report the game score if they'd like.

Each coach will be given access to a team portal which will allow them to conduct league business and manage their team. A team schedule will be available on the portal with a link next to games that a coach can click on to report their score. Optionally, a coach can subscribe to a special notification that will email them a link to report their score a few hours after the scheduled game time.

A pod is a way that we group teams to allow for the best combination of competitive play and the least amount of travel time. For recreational divisions, teams will be grouped into a pod based on geography to cut down on travel time and to promote a sense of community. Athletic teams are expected to travel and will most likely NOT be placed into pods unless there is a very large number of registered teams per grade/playing division.

All teams will play in a season ending tournament that will be single elimination format. Teams may be grouped in divisions for the tournament that look slightly different than the divisions they played in during the regular season in order to make the tournament more competitive.
