how we launch leagues

Simply put, we go where the players are so pre-register! Then send our website link to other players in your area so they can too!

We launch CBL Exposure Leagues based on a location's pre-registration requirements of 112 players (with a minimum of 60 "paid" player members), which is enough for 6 league teams, the minimum to have a league.

Therefore, be sure to have other players in your city/area pre-register (at no cost) so the CBL corporate office knows there is both interest and enough players to start a league. 

Those who pre-register will also receive a special membership discount offer for their league location.

 

how our player draft works

As of July 15th, 2017: When you join and become a CBL player member, you can select the pre-draft team of your choice (teams are labeled 1 - 16 in the player pre-draft application).  You will then be added to that team's roster and website that you have selected.

The best way for players to create their own teams is to have someone purchase a team license. Players can also let other players know which team they selected on their pre-draft application. If the team roster is not full, the player will be added to the team.

Walk-On Players do not have membership status and they do not have the option to select the team that they would like to play for.  Walk-On Players will be randomly drafted to teams by the CBL player draft pool system. 

 

HOW OUR PLAYER CASH PRIZE WORKS

Our quarterly league game cash prize is ALWAYS based on the player's membership level for the quarter season in each city’s league. 

Example of Regular Season Game Cash Prize:

  • 1st Round Draft Pick Player = $100 to $200 per game win
  • 2nd Round Draft Pick Player = $50 to $100 per game win
  • 3rd Round Draft Pick Player = $25 to $50 per game win
  • Walk-On Player = $0 per game (recommended for High School and College players)
