The OYAA Travel basketball program is for basketball players in grades 3 - 6 who attend Olentangy schools or live within the Olentangy School District boundaries. 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 and/or approved evaluator runs the tryout, evaluates players and assigns teams. Parents interested in coaching must sign up online when registering their child to be considered.

Where are Tryouts?
You must try out at the high school for your assigned attendance area. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are unsure, you can find your attendance area on the Olentangy School District website.

Athletes must try out at their correct grade level (no playing up unless determined by HS coaches). 2nd graders are not eligible to participate. Any player found to be registered outside their true grade will be canceled with no refund.
Please note there are separate 3rd and 4th grade boys teams; however, 3rd and 4th grade girls are combined.

Dates and times are determined by the evaluators. Sessions will begin promptly at the indicated time. Attendance at all sessions is strongly recommended. Arrive 30 minutes early the first night to check in.

All tryouts are closed. Only coaches/evaluators and participants permitted in the gyms during tryout times.

Be prepared to show your registration confirmation email at check-in.

Parents - please consider coaching. Register the same time you register your son and/or daughter

All sessions are in the main gym of the high school except where otherwise noted
