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



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).
