Travel Basketball Information

The OYAA Travel basketball program is for basketball players who attend Olentangy schools or live within the Olentangy School District boundaries. Teams are being formed for those presently in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade boys and girls. Teams play in the Central Ohio Basketball Association (COBA), a central Ohio-based league with teams in and around I-270. Teams play in one independent, local tournament and the end-of-season COBA league tournament. Home games are played at Olentangy middle schools. Tryouts are held in mid to late September or early October. Each high school program runs the tryout, evaluates players and assigns teams. Look for information to post on this site when tryouts dates and times are announced.  Parents interested in coaching must sign up on line when registering their child.
