Feb 15th Update: The brackets are out for the 3rd-6th grade tournament. Coordinators please check your gym schedule as it has changed slightly from the tentative schedule we shared last week. Please note that we will not be answering questions from coaches/parents in regards to the tournament brackets and seeding. If you have a question, please reach out to your coordinator. For head coaches with multiple teams, we can only guarantee you can get to the first round games for your teams. Please make sure you have a competent assistant if both of your teams continue to advance throughout the tournament. Best of luck to all teams!

    Tournament Schedule Info

    2/22 Update:  All games originally scheduled to be played at Evendale Elementary, will now be played at Sharonville Elementary

    2/16 Update:  A team was left out of the 6th Girls Ath B Silver bracket, so this bracket was updated this morning to add a Friday game between the 8 and 9 seed.  All other games remain unchanged in that bracket.

    Please note that teams were assigned to brackets and seeded based on regular season results as of 12pm on February 5th for the 7th-12th grade tournament and 12pm on February 12th for the 3rd-6th grade tournament.  While record is the primary driver of seeding, other factors are taken into consideration including forfeit wins/losses, head-to-head, strength of schedule, as well as trying to avoid first round matchups between teams from the same organization (sometimes this is unavoidable.  Due to larger rec brackets this year, lower seeds will play opening round games on Friday.  We tried to reduce travel as much as possible, but this is a city wide tournament and we had very few sites available that were centrally located. Please note that teams that did not have jersey numbers on their roster as of February 5th per previous communication to your coordinators and the note on the front page of the web site were not included and neither were teams that forfeited two or more games for reasons other than illness or injury.  Best of luck to all teams in the tournament next week!

    You can access the schedule using the buttons below (all games for your bracket are shown by looking at the Physical Bracket or Schedule by Bracket) or there is a Tournament option on the Schedule menu with the same options to all of the tournament information.  Please note that all brackets, seeds, and schedules are final.  Follow us on Twitter (@cpybl) as we will be tweeting tournament updates as well as all bracket champions and runners up.
