It is tournament style, however, CYBA does not keep any standings and there is no "winner". Simply a fun-filled day on the MU campus. Uniforms are distributed to the coaches prior to the teams first game.

Post-season Jamboree-March 3rd-This event is for our older players to end their season with a bang! CYBA does not keep any standings and there is no "winner".  A fun-filled day of Basketball

Matt Twenter Sportsmanship award

Every year our players grades 1-5 receive a trophy. This is NOT a participation trophy! This is a symbol for our young players to remember what it is to demonstrate good sportsmanship with their peers, coaches and referrees. Matt Twenter tragically passed away at a young age. He will always be remembered as having a smile on his face, respecting his coaches, teammates and referrees and generally loved to play all sports.
