2021 CBL Scheduling Meeting

Date: March 7, 2021

Where: Zoom Meeting Online

How it works:

  1. Teams will be selected in random order to pick the game time and location that they want to play. After going through the order, the next round will be in reverse order. There will be 5 rounds of location selection.
  2. Match ups will be predetermined using a random scheduling software program and be presented to the coaches.
  3. Each team will choose 5 game times of their choice (one at a time) and the opponent will be already listed based on the predetermined match ups.
  4. Game slots will be presented to all coaches and only the number of games a division needs will be available.
  5. For example: Team #1 will have first pick. That coach will then choose the location and time and the matchup associated with that team will be placed into that slot as well.
