HIGH SCHOOL DIVISIONS: Any High School student who registers for CYBL and then tries out for and makes a High School team (Varsity, JV or Freshman) can receive a full refund from CYBL by contacting the CYBL Treasurer.

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 $900 maximum fee per family (same as the 2011-12 season 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.

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 does not close until the end of September). Then we hold tryouts for the Travel Teams in early October (Travel Team practices begin in mid-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.
