Welcome to OhioBuckets.com! "You either get better or you get worse, you never stay the same!" 


Today, choosing a spring basketball program for your child is not easy.  There are plenty of uncertainties, worries, financial burdens, and the all-around thought of child not enjoying his or her experience.  Ohio Buckets works very hard to alleviate all of those concerns by placing a true focus on caring about, and facilitating, the most optimal environment for your child.  We will be the first to tell you that the Buckets is NOT an entry-level basketball program.  We demand a serious level of commitment, love, passion and knowledge from both players and coaches. With this, we take tremendous pride in separating ourselves from the prototypical "AAU program" label.  As an Ohio Bucket, you can expect your child to be taken out of his or her comfort zone both mentally and physically, and placed in challenging situations in practices and games with an end goal of making the student a better, more experienced person and player.

A sturdy foundation of any team begins with the coach.  At Ohio Buckets, we believe "coach first, team second."  Every Buckets coach assembles his or her OWN team, and "tryouts" are not typical.  Many area programs will host an expensive tryout, inform players they "made" the team, collect a hefty participation fee, and hope for a volunteer or parent to step up and coach that team. There are no "pick up" coaches here, and there are no costly tryouts.  Nearly all Ohio Buckets coaches have some level of Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) coaching experience, at a respective K-12 level. The vast majority of Buckets coaches have certified OHSAA Junior High, Freshman, JV or Varsity experience, and will providing extremely high-level and effective practices each week.

In addition to being well-schooled, Buckets teams travel to some of the best tournaments in the Midwest. Coaches make the ultimate decision, but have the ability to choose from a researched and calculated list of some of the best and most competitive tournaments (Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and West Virginia in most cases).  These tournaments are intended to expose your child to different styles and superior talent from all over the country.

It is with great pride, joy and excitement that we at Ohio Buckets take spring basketball as seriously as you and your child.  We hope, together, we can help grow your child's basketball ability, but also create unforgettable memories along the way.
