Games will be played mainly on Sunday afternoons, but potential for Saturday games when playing in other venues. We are planning to partner with HYAA, GYAA/Groveport Rec again this season for 3rd-6th grade. There is a possibility of adding teams from Teays Valley at the older age levels too. 3rd-6th grade should plan on playing both home and away games this season. Practices will start after Thanksgiving (day/times based on court availability and coaches preference) and games will start in January. Teams can expect approximately 8 games + tournament. Players will receive a reversible jersey with registration.

Travel Basketball - Tride/Lady Tride

CWJRD will continue to offer Tribe/Lady Tribe Travel basketball for those seeking a higher competition level. Travel teams participates in Central Ohio Basketball Association (COBA) and a few additional tournaments throughout the season. Tribe/Lady Tribe players must attend Canal Winchester Local Schools. Players will try-out for these grade based teams in mid-October. If you are not selected for the travel team, you will be placed on one of the recreational league teams. We will offer "travel" basketball for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys and 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls. Travel basketball indicates a higher level of play; games are within the greater Columbus area. All teams will play on a 10' rim and 28.5" ball.

If you are interested in trying out for a travel team, please indicate so on your registration and tryout information will be sent to you. You will register at the regular fee amount. If you are selected for the travel team, the additional fees will be added to your registration. Practices will start in November. Travel teams can anticipate a 20-30 game season that includes approximately 3 tournaments. Players will receive reversible jersey and shorts and a shooting shirt.

Fee: $400 (total - $290 added to account upon accepting spot on team)

Coaches Needed

We are seeking coaches at both the recreational and travel basketball levels. Please consider signing up to be a coach during registration. Coaching is a very rewarding volunteer role and a great way to give back to your community. In addition to a coaching shirt, you will also have input on your practice schedule. Travel basketball coaches will be involved with setting their game schedules and be involved in the evaluation/try-out process. Please reach out to Greg Pearce with any questions or interest in coaching - (614) 837-9380 or [email protected]
