TRIBE/LADY TRIBE BASKETBALL
CWJRD will continue to offer Tribe/Lady Tribe Travel basketball for those seeking a higher competition level. These travel teams participate in the Central Ohio Basketball Association (COBA) and a few additional tournaments throughout the season.
Players will try-out for these grade-based teams in mid-October and must attend Canal Winchester Local Schools. If you are not selected for the travel team, you will be placed on one of the recreational league teams. Tribe basketball is offered for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys and Lady Tribe is offered for 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: The fee is now dependent on how many tournaments your team chooses to do and also how many players are rostered. We anticipate the fee will decrease from 2022/23 for most teams.
