NEW CBA March Madness! - March 2-4, 2018

As previously communicated, the CBA is moving to a new March Madness format for the end of the season games at the Cary Junior High! Previous years we have had an all-star game format where we'd put players of similar skill levels on the same team for an end of the season game. We've decided to try something new this year...

Sparrows (Kindergarten) & Robins (1st/2nd) - We will be keeping the regular season teams together and the kids will play in an end of season "Final Four" game against another team. Like always, we will announce the players, have the national anthem and halftime shoot for $ contest.

Blue Jays (3rd/4th), Cardinals Boys (5th/6th), Cardinals Girls (5th-8th) and Hawks Boys (7th/8th) - Will all be playing with their regular season teams but will be participating in a single-elimination (lose once and you are out) March Madness tournament! We will be announcing the players, playing the national anthem and having the shoot for $ contest only during their first game. This means you could be playing in 2 or even 3 games over the course of the weekend, so please plan accordingly.

Falcons (H.S.) - As usual, we will be hosting their single-elimination tournament at the CGHS this same weekend. Tournament schedule (PDF) to the left.

To the left is the PDF schedule for the weekend.

NOTE: We will be posting the tournament brackets at the CJH during March Madness so players, teams and families can check to see when their next game will be played.

Stay tuned for more details!
