CYBA (Conejo Youth Basketball Association) is a non-profit organization located in Thousand Oaks, California. We provide a means of wholesome recreation to youths in the Conejo Valley area. All of our directors, coaches, and staff are volunteers. About one thousand boys and girls in 1st through 8th play in the CYBA intramural winter leagues played throughout the year.
CYBA offers 2 unique basketball seasons throughout the year:
You can register in one of 2 ways
The registration fee varies by season, registration period and is subject to change without notice. The Winter League cost is ~$195 with discounts for multi-player families. The Spring League is ~$135.
If you are registering multiple individuals, they all need to be registered at the same time in order to receive the sibling discount.
For instance, let's say that you register your daughter in the morning. Then your son changes his mind that afternoon and decides that he wants to play. If you go to register him, the discount will not show up.
There is no easy online resolution for this inconvenience. To receive the discount, you will need to pay by check, the discounted amount. You will also need to contact the league treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
You may mail the check to:
P.O. Box 6966

For players in 1st and 2nd grades:
For players in 3rd grades through 8th:
It is the policy of CYBA to honor all refund requests received prior to team assignments, less a 10% administrative fee.
Although it is the general policy of Youth Sports Organizations nationally not to allow refunds after the formation of teams, CYBA understands that dramatic situations occasionally occur. Therefore, refund requests received after the draft will be heard, but will require approval from the CYBA Board of Directors. It may be possible to receive a discount of up to 50% after the draft. Once games commence, a 0% refund is constituted.
Yes, Academic Awards are given to each player who achieves a "B" average or above during the winter basketball season. There are College Scholarships available for graduating high school seniors.
All players who register on time will be assigned a team. The evaluations are used to try to ensure that teams are evenly balanced, and will include a quick evaluation of dribbling, running, shooting and a quick scrimmage. All players who did not attend the previous Winter League must attend 1 of the evaluations. Players not attending evaluations will be assigned to teams by the Division Directors.
Divisions will be formed based on grades, typically there will be a Division for each Boys grade, and Girls will be grouped into 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, and 7th and above. For 1st and 2nd graders teams will be formed by parent request and by school. For 3rd grades and up CYBA will conduct a draft to select teams.
Parent volunteering is our key to success and we need and welcome coaches. Please contact the Division Director on our website to enquire about coaching opportunities. You will be asked to submit a background appliation.
Yes, the rules are posted online by selecting the link for League Forms.
You can make a request on the registration form to play with a friend, but please keep in mind that there are no guarantees. We try very hard to honor the friend requests for 1st and 2nd grade divisions.
Following the team selection night and coaches' clinic, coaches will contact all players on their respective teams. This is typically towards the latter part of October.
On the registration form you can note practice conflicts. Coaches set their own practice schedules so if they know a player isn’t available on the days he/she wants to practice, then he/she won’t draft that player. Alternatively, you can contact your Division Director to let them know of any special circumstances.
Referees and Scorekeepers are available to 9th grade students and older. Candidates will have a solid understanding of basketball and its rules. Candidates will go through a thorough training program before the season begins. For more information contact the Referee Director listed in the link for Board Members.
We do offer a limited number of player scholarships; however, in exchange, we ask for volunteer hours. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact our League President, Duane Burton. email@example.com
Our league is 100% run by volunteers, and we are always looking for potential Board Members and suggestions. Please contact our President Duane Burton, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or ideas.
