==================

Several Registration Questions and Answers:

Why is CYBL bugging me about registering for a WINTER basketball league in June, July, 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 in mid-September). Then we hold tryouts for the Travel Teams in late September (Travel Team practices begin in early October). Once Travel Team players are selected, CYBL Division Directors then form preliminary Intramural ("in-town") 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 games of the season!

Why should I register as soon as possible?

Based on previous seasons, CYBL has estimates of the number of teams and players we can support in each division. Once we reach those numbers in each division, we have to start putting players on waiting lists. And because the only fair way to run CYBL is on a first-come, first-served basis, the earlier a player registers, the less likely it is that the player will end up on a waiting list.

Also, THIS SEASON (2013-14), there is the additional incentive of saving $10 per player registration if you register BEFORE AUGUST 1st.
