Congratulations to our three Division Champions and their opponents in those games:
•3/4 Division Hoppers over Bulls
•5/6 Division Mac & Cheese over The Team
•7/8 Division Chefs over Benchwarmers
I had the pleasure of watching all three of these championship match-ups. The 3/4 Championship game was inspiring! The kids really were playing well and I enjoyed seeing their young skills on display. The 5/6 and 7/8 match-ups proved to be very exciting, with a two-point win in the 5/6 Division and an overtime victory in the 7/8 Championship game.
As the Director of CYBL for the past seven years, I would like to express my appreciation to the many volunteer coaches, scorekeepers, and others who have helped make this league an outstanding opportunity for hundreds of kids each year. This year was certainly no exception. All the coaches, whether they made it to the championship game or didn't win a single game, devote countless hours of volunteer time helping the players to learn the game and about sportsmanship. I hope each parent will take the time to personally thank their son or daughter's coach.
I want to especially thank Jesse Soto and Todd Peterson for the many hours spent opening and closing the gym for practices and games, even when their team was not playing. These two people have been a large part of the success of CYBL, and I'm happy to say that Jesse Soto will now take on the role of CYBL Director in the coming years.
To the parents, thank you for your support of CYBL. Our "non-competitive-competitive" league philosophy has certainly been adhered to by most, which makes CYBL more about the kids than winning, including coaches ensuring all players get an opportunity to play and learn, not just the best players.
