October 1st Update: We are almost 50% of the way through our registration period. Coordinators please check the timelines for this upcoming season. We are working on updates to the rules document based on our league meeting in August. It is too early to set a league policy on COVID. At this time, we anticipate NOT having a league policy and that protocols would be established by host gyms based on what their community or school district requires. We are working on a way for coordinators to enter this information on our web site and pushing this out to all away team coaches on Friday afternoon for all games that weekend they are playing on the road.

    Waivers and Compliance

    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.  Coaches must be logged into their coach account to access form.  Coach accounts are not created until the team registration period is over.

    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.
