Fee: $125

3rd-8th grade division: 

Teams are formed first by school (if there is a coach and enough players), then by space available on other teams.  If there is more than one team per school, then teams within that school will be formed randomly.  CYBA does not honor team/player/coach requests. Players have the option to play with the elementary team/coach from 3rd-5th grade.

 Players must play in their grade level.  

Games begin January 8th every Saturday through March 5th with a snow makeup on March 12th 2022.

Teams in grades 3-6 boys and 3-8th girls start with a pre season Jamboree on December 11th or 12th with a guarantee of 3 games per team! This is not a tournament but just a great way to start the season with a lot of FUN!


In 6th grade, CYBA does not allow players to return to their elementary school team/coach. CYBA forms teams randomly by the Middle schools that players attend. Middle school teams may choose to stay with their coach in 7th and 8th grade. CYBA is a recreational league and we strive to keep the teams balanced as much as possible. 


7th graders who play on their school team can play/practice with CYBA after their season is complete at their school (We suggest signing 7th graders up early to assure a spot on a team by team formation deadline). Teams are typically full if you wait to sign up after the school season is over the first week of December.

Players in 8th grade who are playing school ball cannot play CYBA. We suggest registering for the division in 8th grade to assure a spot on a team, and if your player makes their school team they can be removed from the division. You can complete payment after the school teams are announced.


*CYBA reserves the right to combine divisions based on number of registrations received at the time of team coordination.
