November 22nd Update: THE DECEMBER SCHEDULE HAS BEEN RELEASED! Please note we will not be making any changes to this schedule unless we have double-booked gym space. Coordinators had the ability to review the schedule and we made changes based on their feedback. A reminder that teams starting in January have until November 28th to register. The January and February league schedule will be available for coordinator review in mid-December. Thanks!

We will continue to rely on guidance from the State of Ohio, the OHSAA, and local school districts on precautions that must be taken in order to run our league in the safest manner possible. Our COVID-19 operating guidelines have been approved by the departments of health in all counties that we operate in and we stand ready to help our member communities. We understand that with such a large and diverse league that there are a variety of opinions and thoughts on COVID-19 and steps that must be taken to minimize exposure to it. However, we must come together for the common good and abide by guidelines that have been well thought out by the State of Ohio, the OHSAA, and the local school districts where your children attend school. The viability and success of the league will depend on it for this season.

    League Timeline

    We will offer three weeks of league play in December for those organizations that wish to start at that time.  For everyone else, we will start the second weekend in January. For teams starting in December we will try to schedule a typical number of games for the season (10 for rec/high-rec and 20 for athletic) and for those starting in January (7-8 for rec/high-rec and 14-16 for athletic).  This is highly dependent on the amount of gym time available.

    COVID-19 Gym Instructions

    Coaches, Parents, and Players,

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions put in place by the state of Ohio regarding percentage occupancy of indoor facilities, some of the gyms have special requirements in order to be in compliance due to their size.  This news item will be displayed on the front page of the CPYBL web site for the duration of the 2020-21 season.  Please make yourself familiar with it.  As a reminder, the league rule (as voted on and approved by all member organizations) is that each player can have at most two people attend the game with them.

    Lower Capacity Gyms

    1. Bridgetown Multipurpose (not the main gym):  1 person per player
    2. Delhi Multipurpose (not the main gym): 1 person per player

    Coach Accounts

    We are getting alot of email about Coach Accounts. First, your coach account will not be created until we approve your team.  This will not happen until early November for teams starting in December or until early December for teams starting in January

    If you are a coach and have a question about your account, PLEASE go to the Coach page and try to do some investigation yourself before emailing the league. Only head coaches are granted coach accounts and it is based on the email address assigned to your team by your coordinator. Also, several of you are asking why you can't find the Coach Portal.  The Portals menu at the top of the web site does not show up unless you are logged into your account with coach or coordinator level privileges.  Makes sense right?  We don't expose menu options to just anybody, you need to be logged into your account that has those options first.  Thanks!
