The countdown is on to the start of the 2021-22 season. And with CoBL back in business, we're also getting back to our preseason content! This page will serve as the hub for all our season preview content to come out between now (early October) and the start of the high school season (early December).

Over the coming days and weeks leading up to the season, we'll be providing breakdowns of the City 6 teams plus numerous other area Division I, Division II & Division III programs, as well as several player feature stories and a look at the various leagues they all play in. On the high school side, we'll be doing individual preview stories of dozens upon dozens of high school programs in the area, boys and girls -- not necessarily in any order, so keep checking here every day to see what's new!
