2/22 Update: The last week of scheduled league play will be this upcoming weekend. Organizations that wish to play make-up games can do so on the weekend of March 6th/7th. We need to have all of those make-up games scheduled and communicated to the league by March 1st. Also always, please continue to check your schedules towards the end of the week although reschedules have dropped dramatically over the past few weeks. All coaches have been subscribed to game change notifications so please check your emails.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.
We will be extending the season one week this year due to the large number of games that have been postponed due to COVID-19 quarantines. Coordinators will be able to work together to reschedule games on March 5th-7th. Please note that ONLY MAKEUP games will be played this weekend as scheduled by community coordinators.
An email went out today (2/10) to all coordinators with specific information and guidelines. Not all of our member organizations will want to extend their season an extra week so we will list these organizations here so all coordinators are aware which teams are not available for makeup games that weekend.
Organizations Not Playing March 5th-7th
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 of today, the league rule is that each player can have at most two people attend the game with them. The Head Coach and one Assistant Coach do not count in this total. Scorebook and clock personal count in this total.
NO SPECTATORS ARE ALLOWED AT CPS SCHOOLS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE (WALNUT HILLS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, CLARK MONTESSORI HIGH SCHOOL, and SHRODER HIGH SCHOOL). Kilgour games at these schools will be broadcast live at the following links:

Special Instructions from Gyms
This is a reminder that in order for organizations, coaches (head coaches only!), and players to participate in the CPYBL, the league needs to be in possession of online documents that need to be filled out once per school year before games begin. Coordinators and Coaches must be logged into their account to access these forms. All coordinators are well aware of these requirements, there is no communication between the league and the 10,000 parents associated with it. We communicate to our member organizations and it is their responsibility to communicate to their coaches and parents.
There is a matching process that takes place between waivers and rosters based on the last name and birth date of the player. In some cases, the member organization has the incorrect birth date on the roster and it is the responsibility of the member organization to fix this. If you are a parent and have correctly filled out your liability waiver, there is no need to fill out 5 others. Have your member organization check the roster.
Organizations/Coordinators: An Organization Agreement form must be filled out (one per organization). This is available from the Portals->Coordinator menu.
Coaches: Coaches must fill out an online Code of Conduct form which is available from the Portals-Coach menu.
Players: Parents must filled out a Liability Waiver Form once per school year. Without this form, your player is ineligible to play in our league. Playing without a waiver may result in forfeiture of games.click here to read more ...
