2021-2022 Travel Basketball

The information below is from the 2021-2022 program. Check back later this spring for information on the 2022-2023 program.

Travel Basketball

The purpose of the DYA Travel Basketball Program is to further the development of basketball players in 4th-6th grade who demonstrate basketball skills and abilities above the typical recreational league player by providing them with practice opportunities and games in a more competitive setting.

All Travel Basketball players must be in 4th, 5th, or 6th grade and reside within the limits of the Dublin City School District or within the City of Dublin to be eligible for Travel league and tournament participation.

Practices are held on weeknights beginning at 6:30 PM or occasionally 8:00 PM and are 90 minutes in length. Practices are held at Dublin City Schools high school, middle school, and elementary school gymnasiums. Practices begin in early November.

Games are almost always scheduled on weekends. Home games are played on Sunday afternoons and early evenings. Away games are typically on Saturdays. Teams play a 14 to 16 game regular season. Games begin in early December and run through mid February.

All teams participate in at least three tournaments including the Dublin Holiday Tournament (December 17-December 19), the COBA (Central Ohio Basketball Association) Championship Tournament (February 11-13 & February 18-20), plus a third tournament selected by each team.

Generally, there are no games or practices scheduled over Holiday Break.

If your child does make the travel team:
You can transfer the Rec Basketball fee and put it towards the Travel Basketball fee.

If your child does NOT make the travel team:
You can remain in the rec basketball league or request for a full refund. We do this because registration for Rec Basketball ends before Travel Basketball tryouts are complete. The child could get shutout if they wait to register after the outcome of travel basketball tryouts. This prevents them from being wait-listed.
