Practice Tomorrow
by posted 12/02/2021

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to remind everyone that we have practice tomorrow at the Columbia Sports Fieldhouse (just north of Tolton HS) at 6pm.  Also, for the Monday practices at Russell Elementary - they keep the door locked and we can't prop it open.  For the time being, if you need in and no one is there to open the door - feel free to text/call.  My number is 573-529-0151.

Finally, I just wanted to say that practice on Monday went really well.  I appreciate Latasha's help as well.  The guys played hard and we made some real progress for the first practice.  

If you have any questions or concerns - feel free to email or call.

See you all tomorrow!

Welcome to the Team & Season!
by posted 11/21/2021

Good evening to all!

My name is Josh Moore and I am a CYBA Board member.  Welcome to the 2021-2022 CYBA season!

For the first couple of weeks - Coach Hill and I will be getting the team started and ready for the Jamboree.  Coach Young will be stepping in after the Jamboree and taking over for me.  I am excited to help get the team started and was glad to hear that we could get another team formed for this division.

As you'll see from the calendar - we have practices scheduled for:

  • 11/29 at 7:00 p.m. at Russell Elementary
  • 12/3 at 6:00 p.m. at the Sports Fieldhouse
  • 12/6 at 7:00 p.m. at Russell Elementary
  • 12/10 at 6:00 p.m. at the Sports Fieldhouse.

Practices are 90 minutes this year.  Please make sure your players come with a ball and water.  I'll try to get there early but please make sure that a coach is at the school before you drop your player off!

The Jamboree is scheduled for the weekend of December 11 and 12, but the schedule has not been posted yet.  The team will have the opportunity to play 3 games during the Jamboree!

If you are new to CYBA - please remember - it is a rec league that focuses on building fundamentals and having fun, and when it comes to playing time - players have to have equal playing time (or close to it).

If you could, please shoot me an email ( so that I know that you received this email.  Let me know if your player will be able to make these first 4 practices and the Jamboree.  If there is anything about your player that I need to know - please tell me in the email as well.

I look forward to meeting all of you on 11/29 at Russell Elementary.  We will plan on having a very brief parent meeting following that first practice.
