CYBA, Columbia Youth Basketball serves youth grades 1st through 12th grade in Columbia Missouri. We are THE recreational league of Columbia for 25 years and are partnered with Columbia Parks and Recreation and Columbia Public Schools.
The 1st and 2nd grade division are formed together and are coed (boys and girls mixed). Practice and game is combined on Saturdays beginning January 5th. CYBA registration will remain open until all teams are full or December 14th (whichever comes first). Teams will be formed the last week of November with a coaches meeting on December 1st 2018.
Teams will beco-ed and formed first by school (if there is a coach and enough players), then by space available on other teams after teams are formed. If there is more than one team per school, then teams within that school will be formed randomly. Requests for a specific coach or teammate(s) and carpool requests will not be honored. Players must play in their grade level. Registration will continue for 1st and 2nd grade through mid December or until all teams ar filled. Fee is $75. These fees include team shirt/shoe bag, preseason jamboree in December, gym space and referrees. Practice/games begin on January 5th 2018. Parents will be contacted by the coach after December 1st
Coed grades 1 and 2 will have one 30 minute practice/game at the MU rec center on December 15th at the Jamboree to meet your coach. Your coach will have your uniform at this event.
We also offer the Rod Nolke Memorial Skills Clinic which is held on 4 Saturdays in October and November. Discount is applied to players opting for both the clinic and the league.
