Here is what some of our participants and attendees are saying:
“Hello Tucker and Tom,
We played in your Black Diamond Championship Tournament this past weekend and it was great. Thank you for an excellent tournament!
I do have one bit of feedback for you. I’m a parent of a player from the U13 Gold Champions (Mass Premier Swish) and I helped with the book and clock all weekend. Our semi-final game was close and there was a discrepancy at the scorers table that may have altered the outcome of the game. I think you should consider charging a bit more and having paid staff working the scorer tables. You can charge the teams more at registration or the parents more at the door.
“Just wanted to say how much I appreciate how well-organized your tournaments are. After being a spectator at tournaments run buy another organization, you really are superior in every aspect. The fact that you offer weekend passes for families is a huge bonus. We never have questions about team standings because you update the brackets immediately following each game. Thank you, Ohio Basketball, for keeping parents in the loop and making the kids feel just as important as NBA players.”
–Jonalee Limbacher Fernatt
“Tucker, I run several basketball leagues in the area an I know how difficult it can be to schedule games and make adjustments so I just wanted to Thank you again for scheduling all my games in the same place on Sat and Sun. We had a great tournament. See you soon.”
“Just wanted to say THANKS to you and your tournament group of organizers and helpers! It’s been 9 years of traveling to your tournaments and many others, but it always seemed like your events were more personable and better organized than mostly all of the tournaments I’ve had our kids in.”
-Coach of NPBC Cavemen of PA
“Thank you for the opportunity and great experience we had at your Midwest Spring Slamm! It is a great and well organized tournament and we are looking forward to returning next year!”
-Elite Camps Director
“Thank you for a great tournament this past weekend. Hopefully I will bring more Capitals teams to come play next year… See you in Syracuse!”
-Coach of Albany Capitals of NY
“Thanks so much for the way you scheduled the tournament, allowing me to coach both of my teams without conflict. I really appreciate it. The tournament was great once again this year.”
-Coach Kevin Braun
I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were this weekend with your Twin Cities Tipoff Classic tournament. Very well ran, very organized, and the competition was great! Each team we played showed impeccable sportsmanship and although we didn’t win a game, my boys learned a lot and have come back to NY better overall basketball players. This was our first tournament with this group of kids- we are looking forward to wrapping up our season again this year at the Erie Spring Classic. Thank you again for this wonderful experience.”
-Coach of RAP Blockers of NY
“The Run for the Roses Tournament was great… my first time there and probably the best of my summer!”
-Angie Zeuch Head Coach | Women’s Basketball Thiel College in PA
Just wanted to thank the person that posted the winners and runners up from the last weekend and even with pictures! Last year it was harder to find out who ended up winning and it’s hard to stay for the finals often; since we’ve already used up much of our weekend on basketball. (We weren’t the winners[yet!]) Also really appreciate how early in the week the schedules are getting posted. You guys seem really organized and are doing a good job 🙂 Have a good one.
-Bobette Seymour – basketball parent
I also just wanted to tell you that you are very good at what you do. Your tournaments are always well run and organized. If anybody asks me about travel basketball tournaments I just tell them to go to ohiobasketball.com!
-Cliff Beck – Coach

-Bob Natale | Coach of Red Storm

-John | Girard Elite Basketball
I would personally like to thank the staff with ohiobasketball.com for an awesome job with all the tournaments we have attended. We have attended tournaments both far and near and they all have been successful. I know it takes a great deal of work to put these tournaments on. Each and everyone that we have attended have been run very smoothly. We attended the local ones, and have traveled to Cincinnati for the past 2 years. We are looking forward to attending the Wildcat Memorial for our first year! Job well done ohiobasketball!
-Brandy Pryor | Go Hard Bulldogs – 7th grade boys basketball
You guys deliver quicker than Domino’s when they used have their “30 minutes or less or it’s FREE” guarantee! I will look for the updated schedule after 2:00pm today… THANKS!
-Dan | Pittsburgh Huskies
Thank you so guys so much with your help securing hotels! Have to admit, I’ve been to tons of tournaments and I can honestly say that I’ve never had this good a service. You guys have been awesome accommodating our teams…wow!
Now that the 2012 travel season is coming to an end I was cleaning out my e-mail and I came across the message below. I want to thank you for the time and effort you put forth to make the tournaments so successful. Everything was well organized and the competition was very strong. I plan to add a few more players next year and split my team in half to have a 4th grade team and a 5th grade team. We look forward to continuing with your organization. Thank you.
-John | Coach of “The Future”
I wanted to say thanks to you and your team in regards to the Pittsburgh Tip off classic.
This was our first tournament with Ohio Basketball, but I must admit, the tournament ran very well.
Thank you for working with me in regards to our Pittsburgh schedule. Very much appreciated.
