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


Choosing a basketball team for your son to play on in the spring can be stressful, complicated, expensive and leave you with a ton of uncertainy.  Ohio Buckets...


Coach first, team second.  Every Ohio Buckets coach assembles his or her OWN team.  Many area programs have a (paid) tryout, sign youth players up, collect money, and hope for a volunteer or parent to step up and coach. There are no "pick up" coaches here.

Nearly all Ohio Buckets coaches have some level of OHSAA coaching experience, at a particular level (grades 4-12). In most cases, a certified OHSAA Junior High, Freshman, Junior Varsity or Varsity coach will be coaching your child in practices and games.

 ★  COST

Unlike many area programs, Ohio Buckets operates off of slim to no profits. Simply put, we charge parents what it costs us to:   1.) Enter tournaments   2.) Purchase and print a jersey
Spring basketball should be an opportunity for your child, not a major expense.


Buckets teams travel to the BEST tournaments in the Midwest. Coaches make the ultimate decision, but have the ability to choose from a researched and calculated list of the best and most competitive tournaments in the Midwest (Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and West Virginia in most cases).
