Season Schedule Published

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

The full season schedule was published at midnight on November 23rd. You can view the schedule by accessing the Schedule menu or from your portal if you are a coordinator, coach, or subscriber to a team. Please note the following information about the schedule:

  • The schedule is final
  • Any issues with the schedule should be taken to your community coordinator who can contact the league if necessary
  • Teams that play in divisions with an odd number of teams will usually have one bye weekend and one weekend where they play multiple games.
  • All schedules were reviewed by your community coordinators who provided feedback to the league that was incorporated into the final schedule
  • Athletic schedules were very tricky this year due to a large number of divisions with an odd number of teams in them and limited gym time given to the league by several communities. We did the best we could with what we had.
  • We would like to wish everyone the best of luck this season and a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families

    CPYBL Preseason Shootout Info

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    We would like to announce some changes to this year's CPYBL Preseason Shootout. We will once again offer this preseason tuneup event at local gyms on November 12-13. Each team will play 3 games with a running clock format. The following improvements have been made to this year's event:

    1. NEW recreational division to complement what has traditionally been an athletic-only event.
    2. $95 fee includes 3 games AND referee fees. Organizations can pay all fees up front for their teams eliminating the need to dispense cash to coaches before the season starts.
    3. Web site based schedule! No more crazy spreadsheets. The schedule will be fully vetted on our web site and can be viewed using traditional methods.
    4. Coordinators can register teams for the tournament on-line during the regular season registration process by simply checking a box on the bottom of the on-line registration form. How much easier can it get?

    We also welcome teams from outside the CPYBL to participate in this preseason tune-up. If you are a non-CPYBL team, email Ben Goodyear with your intent to play at [email protected]

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    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.

    Big League, Local Feel

    CPYBL provides the diversity of a city-wide league with the feel of a smaller community based-league. Our large member base provides our athletic teams with the opportunity to travel and play the best competition while our pod system gives our recreational teams a community league feel.

    Inclement Weather Information

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    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:

    1. Create an account on our web site and subscribe to game status change notifications. An account can be created by clicking on the Register link above our logo. When registering for an account, you can choose to subscribe to a team or teams and also choose to receive certain types of notifications about that team. When a game is postponed, cancelled, or the location or time of the game is changed, you will receive either a text message or an email based on your settings. Text messages are almost instantaneous after the change has been made while emails tend to lag 10-15 minutes. If you signup for a text message notification, make sure you include your cell phone number (include area code) when filling out your account information
    2. Go to our web site. When a gym is closed for the entire day, a message will appear on the front page of the web site indicating that the gym is closed. If you are scheduled to play a game at that gym that day, you will then know that the game has been postponed
    3. Follow us on Twitter @cpybl . We will not tweet out individual gym closings but if ALL of our gyms are closed due to inclement weather we will tweet that information.
    4. Look at your team schedule on our web site.. If an organization closes a gym for an entire day via our web site, this will automatically set the status of all games scheduled at that gym to "postponed". If only a handful of games are postponed on a given day, then your schedule won't be updated in real time but might lag a few hours as we manually update game statuses.

    Game Rescheduling

    Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionPDF versionPDF version

    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:

    • Gym closing
    • Head coach and all assistants are not available
    • The team has fewer than 5 players that can attend the game due to a school sponsored event or illness

    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.
