Our travel basketball program will participate in the COBA (Central Ohio Basketball Association) League, which is a more involved, more intensive basketball program that will travel around the Columbus area, up to and including 1 hours’ drive time, pending game location. With the increase in intensity of the nature of the program it will require more time and energy from our players. The program has 4-5 contact points a week. We will have 4-5 practices per week in the preseason and 3-4 in season. Once games begin, you will play games most weekends and will participate in up to 4 tournaments, which will feature 3 guaranteed games and up to 8-10 games if you advance in the tournaments. This program requires a serious commitment from early October – early March.
