Game scores can be edited up to 14 days after your game in case they have been reported incorrectly.

Please review our league calendar listed above. The following is a list of basic information about our league.
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 2016-2017 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 2016-2017 season. Please Contact Us with any questions you might have.
Now that winter is upon us, please read the following information regarding how gym closures will be determined and how they will be communicated to coaches, players, and their families
Coordinators, if you plan on cancelling games at your facility, we ask that you do so at least 90 minutes before tip-off (if possible) to give everyone (players, parents, coaches, and referees) adequate lead time. You can cancel games at your gyms from your portal (for an entire day) or you can email, call or text league representatives if you would like the league to cancel the game. Keep in mind that weather will be changing over the weekend and it is unlikely that games for an entire day would need to be cancelled if at all.
The first important piece of information to remember is that our member organizations make the decisions regarding whether or not games will be played at their gymnasiums. This is not a league decision, it is a member organization decision. We have provided tools to organization coordinators as well as to coaches, players, and their families to help speed up the decision making and notification process so that everyone can be made aware of a game postponement as early as possible so that they can plan the rest of their day and not find out a game is being cancelled while they are driving to the game. Please note that the term "postponed" indicates that the game will not be played at the current time and location listed for that game but that it may be rescheduled for a future date. If a game is marked as "cancelled", that indicates that the game will not be played and will not be rescheduled.
As a coach or family member of a player, you can find out about a game postponement or cancellation in the following ways:
All game reschedule requests must now go through your organization coordinators who will work with your opponent and the league to reschedule games that cannot be played for any of the following reasons:
Please note that if a team requests a game change within 7 days of the scheduled game time, at the discretion of the league it can be marked as a forfeit loss for the team that cannot attend and that team must pay both referees for their time.
