Athletic registration is closed as is the opportunity to enter gym availability. 2nd-6th rec team registration is open until Oct 24, and 7th-12th rec team registration until Nov 14. We do not need rosters by these dates, just teams and their playing level (and head coach information if you have it at that time). Parents should be filling out Liability Waivers now for the upcoming season.

Registration Metrics

Athletic registrations are closed and the deadline for 2nd-6th rec teams is October 24th. If you'd like an idea how many teams are registering per grade/skill level, click on the button below to view some high-level registration metrics.

CPYBL Preseason Shootout Info

We will once again be offering our CPYBL Preseason Shootout tuneup event at local gyms on November 11-12. Deadline to register is October 29th.  Each team will play 3 games with a running clock format.

  1. Athletic and recreational divisions will be offered for boys and girls in grades 3-6.
  2. If you would like to host games for this tournament, you can either email us or simply indicate the times you have available on your gym availability calendar.
  3. $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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.  You can also register your team for the tournament any time after season registration by editing the team record from the My Teams section of your coordinator portal.  There is a checkbox indicating whether or not your team plans on playing.
  6. Coaches are unable to register teams directly and should funnel requests through their coordinators or if their organization is not paying their registration, they can contact us directly.

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]

7-12th Grade League Update

For those wondering, we plan on having a very vibrant 7th-12th grade recreational and high-rec boys and girls league again this year with numbers much larger than last year. You may register teams at any time, but registration closes on November 14th. These teams will play a 10 game season like the rest of the league and a post-season tournament will also be offered to this age group. Thanks!

Amerileagues Sports Supply On-Line Store

The new Amerileagues Sports Supply on-line store is open for business. We are pleased to be able to provide you with top quality merchandise at buying group pricing. For 2017, we will be offering the Wilson Evolution and NCAA Limited basketballs as well as a coaching kit that includes a mesh bag, score book, and dry erase board (these items may also be purchased separately). As we are now working with over 2600 youth basketball and volleyball teams in the Greater Cincinnati area, we have negotiated some nice discounts with our supplier.

Individuals purchasing items must pay via PayPal or credit card at time of purchase. Coordinators placing bulk orders for their organizations who do not wish to pay at time of purchase may enter their member code during checkout. They will be invoiced the next day. Payment must be received before the order is processed.

All purchases will help us keep these costs low and save money for our community organizations and parents.  Please visit our store at today!

September Meeting Notes

Thank you to those who attended one of our September meetings.  We mainly reviewed the upcoming season, but here are a few notes about new business that was discussed.

  1. We will only be using one referee for 2nd grade games this year at a cost of $14 per team
  2. There will not be a 2nd grade season-ending tournament, the same as in past years
  3. A deal has been finalized with Wilson to provide the Evolution basketball for $45 and the NCAA Limited basketball for $30 with NO FREIGHT on any size orders.  Visit for more details
  4. A few of you have asked about a 3rd grade boys high-rec division.  We will definitely have a 3rd grade boys athletic (20 games with travel) and a 3rd grade boys rec division.  We will offer the high rec division but if there are not enough teams, these teams will be placed back in rec.  Please note that the high rec division would be a 10 game schedule and would most likely involve travel since we don't anticipate having enough teams signup to create pods.

    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.
