Open for Business!

We are open for business for the 2016-2017 season. Coordinators can start registering teams, inputting gym availability, and notifying the league of schedule conflicts for their teams using their portal. Deadlines and other season dates are listed under Important Info. Please contact the league if you have any questions regarding registration or if you need to change the contact information for your organization on our web site.

CPYBL Preseason Shootout Info

We would like to announce some changes to this year's CPYBL Preseason Shootout. We will once again offer this preseason tuneup event at local gyms on November 12-13. Each team will play 3 games with a running clock format. The following improvements have been made to this year's event:

  1. NEW recreational division to complement what has traditionally been an athletic-only event.
  2. $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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. How much easier can it get?

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
