If your child normally practiced on Tuesday at 5:30, they will now practice on Tuesday at 6:30 with the K2-3 teams. If your child practiced on Thursday at 5:30, they will now practice on Thursday at 6:30 with the K2-3 teams.

CHYBL History

The Cowan Heights Youth Basketball League was formed by a group of interested parents in the Fall of 2000. The league started with 16 teams, 4 teams in each Division of Grades 3/4 Boys and Girls, and Grades 5/6 Boys and Girls. In 2002 we expanded 3 divisions to 6 teams each. In 2004 the league expanded again to include Grades 7/8 Boys and Girls. In the 2009 fall session we again felt the need to expand and have now included a K-2 mixed Division. In 2014, we established divisions of K-1 Mixed, 2-3 Mixed, 4-5 Boys/Girls, and 6-7 Boys/Girls.

This has allowed the introduction of basketball at a very young age with the hopes of keeping the kids active throughout Primary, Elementary, and Junior High.
