After Travel Teams are selected in LATE SEPTEMBER, one additional fee of $250 will be required.
FAMILY MAXIMUM PAYMENTS: INTRAMURAL ONLY PLAYERS: There is a $350 maximum fee per family for families who only register Intramural participants. In order to have this maximum fee charged automatically at the time of registration, ALL players must be registered in the same online registration session.
FAMILIES with TRAVEL and INTRAMURAL PLAYERS: There is a $1,000 maximum fee per family for those families who have participants in both the Intramural and Travel programs. Because of the method and timing in which Travel Team Players are selected, final resolution of the family maximum payment typically involves a discussion with the CYBL Treasurer.

CYBL Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Brief Overview, Each Division, Including Division Director Info
(Division-specific questions - ask the appropriate Division Director)
Several Registration Questions and Answers:
Why is CYBL bugging me about registering for a WINTER basketball league in August and September?!
In order to recruit coaches and form teams that are as evenly matched as possible, CYBL first needs to know how many kids are registered (registration closes mid-September for TRAVEL tryouts and at the end of September for INTRAMURAL divisions). We hold tryouts for the TRAVEL Teams in mid-late September (TRAVEL Team practices begin in early October).
Once TRAVEL Team players are selected, CYBL Division Directors then form preliminary INTRAMURAL ("in-town") division teams and run evaluation scrimmages or use some other means in early/mid-November to see if the teams in their divisions are evenly matched. Adjustments are made to team rosters based on those scrimmages/evaluations, and voila, it's early December and time to play the first INTRAMURAL division games of the season!
Why should I register as soon as possible?
Based on previous seasons, CYBL has estimates of the number of INTRAMURAL division teams and players we can support in each division. Once we reach those numbers in each division, we have to start putting players on wait lists. And because the only fair way to run CYBL is on a first-come, first-served basis, the earlier a player registers, the more likely it is that the player will be
placed on a team and not end up on a waiting list.
