About Us



OBC is one of the most prominent summer AAU youth and high school basketball programs in the country, with roots dating to 1983!

We are dedicated to proper instruction both on and off the court.  Our players meet new friends, meet mentors, and consistently take their game to another level. 

OBC has been extremely successful at developing future leaders by raising the bar for dedication, expectations and integrity.  Our ultimate goal is to help build a more promising future for your young athletes.

It has been well documented that OBC is the most successful AAU program in Ohio history.  You can see examples of this success by checking out the alumni section of our site.  We currently have placed over 350 players on basketball and football scholarships and have had nearly 30 athletes go on to play professional sports.

We are the only Adidas sponsored AAU program in the state of Ohio.  We consistently give our high school players the opportunity to play in front of college coaches and the top recruiting services in America.  It is not uncommon for our high school athletes to play in front of 50 to 100 college coaches in each game during the NCAA live-periods.

We are one of the most respected AAU programs in the country and this is evident by the large number of major college programs that consistently recruit our player’s year-after-year.
