Tournament Planning

All coordinators were sent an email on January 14th asking for available gym time for the season-ending tournament with the deadline for submission being Friday the 19th. We will be reviewing this information over the weekend and putting together a plan that we will communicate to the coordinators at our next meeting.

Tournament Information

The season-ending tournament for our league will take place from February 22-25. An email was sent to all coordinators on January 14th asking them to submit gym availability for the tournament. We hope to have gym assignments completed by February 1st and will email all coordinators with this information. Teams will be placed into brackets and seeded based on all recorded game scores as of Monday, February 12th at 12pm. The tournament schedule will be released by end of day Thursday, February 15th.

It is assumed that ALL 3rd-12th grade teams will be participating in the tournament UNLESS the league is notified by either the coach or the coordinator by February 1st.

Here is some information about the post season tournament:

  • All tournaments are single elimination
  • There is not a tournament for 2nd graders as voted on by coordinators earlier this season
  • 1st and 2nd place teams will receive individual player medals
  • Teams will be assigned to brackets and seeded based on regular season record at 2/12 at 12pm. The main factor in seeding is record, but we also use a strength of schedule calculation to help. This is not an exact science so please be respectful of our decisions. Nobody is out to get your team.
  • All communities hosting tournaments MUST have a gym monitor in their gym for all games and they must also have someone available to run the clock.
  • Some games will be played on Thursdays. They will only be scheduled from 6pm-9pm. 3rd and 4th graders will not play 8pm games on Thursday. Friday games may be scheduled from 6pm-10pm.
  • We are working with area high schools to have all athletic, and potentially high-rec, championship games played in high school gyms on Sunday.

  • Rosters

    Happy New Year everyone!  As per published league rules, all rosters were frozen as of December 31st.  Coaches are no longer able to edit their rosters and while coordinators still have access to these functions, they are not permitted to add players to their rosters.  Please contact the league if there are extenuating circumstances (i.e. season-ending injuries that prevent a team from having enough players to continue with league play).  Also, all organizations that had roster entries created by liability waiver submissions, this functionality has also been turned off for the season.


    New Informational Pages

    In anticipation of a large expansion in the off-season, we put together informational pages for Parents, Coaches, and Coordinators.  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.  If you are a coach and have not receive an email from the web site about your user account, you can check on the status of it on the Coaches page.  In some cases, your coordinator has not set you up as a coach OR possibly the welcome email from the web site was routed to your spam/junk mail folder.

  • ALL parents/guardians must fill out the CPYBL Liability Waiver form for each of their children. Players will not be allowed to participate in league games until the waiver has been submitted. During the submission process, you may request that a copy of the form be emailed to you for your records.

    Waivers for the 2017-2018 season are now being accepted. We have refined our process to match waivers with roster entries based on organization, player last name, and player date of birth so we anticipate fewer issues this year. PARENTS, PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK THAT YOU HAVE ENTERED CORRECT INFORMATION FOR ORGANIZATION, PLAYER LAST NAME, AND PLAYER BIRTH DATE! This will save you, your coach, and your coordinator alot of time later trying to sort out whether or not you have submitted a waiver form.

    Liability Waiver Form

    Please take a moment to read the League Rules as well as the Codes of Conduct that are used to govern the league.
