3rd - 8th Grade League Information
During these uncertain times we remain dedicated to our mission and feel now, more than ever, kids deserve, and need, an opportunity to participate in CYBA. Due to COVID-19 the Fargo-Moorhead Youth Basketball League, FMYBL, in which CYBA is a member and consists of other local metro schools has cancelled the 2020 season. In consultation with the Central Cass Administration the CYBA Board of Directors has worked diligently to develop a plan we feel allows our kids to participate in a familiar and safe environment. As a result of this collaboration our kids WILL have an opportunity to play basketball this fall. The unusual circumstances COVID-19 presents makes this plan fluid with little notice. We ask for everyone’s understanding as we tread through uncharted waters.
