    CPYBL Preseason Tournaments

    We are trying something new this year to give everyone the best option for preseason play.  For the 9th straight year, we will be offering the CPYBL Preseason Shootout on November 11th and 12th in local area gyms for 3rd-6th grade boys and girls teams of all skill levels.  This is a round-robin format (3 games) with no single elimination or bracket play.  Cost is $60 per team + ref fees ($35 per game).  Registration deadline is November 1st.  We are looking for gyms to host this event so if you are interested, please email us and/or add gym time to your availability calendar on our website for that weekend.

    In addition, we will also be offering the Amerileagues Preseason Tournament which is a 3 game guarantee single elimination tournament (2 pool play games followed by single elimination) on November 17th-19th.  This is a new option for this season and will be offered to 3rd-6th grade boys and girls athletic teams only.  We will offer an A and B division for all grades (athletic C teams are welcome to register and play in the B division.  Cost is $60 per team + ref fees ($35 per game).  Registration deadline is November 10th.  All games will be played at Elite Athletic Sports Complex and Princeton City School gyms.

    Coordinators may sign up their teams when registering them for regular season play.  We also have a registration page (linked pages earlier in this message) for non-CPYBL teams to register (or CPYBL teams whose organization is not handling their preseason tournament registration).  If eligible, teams can play in both tournaments if they'd like.

    Here are some reminders about our preseason tournaments:
