Men's Basketball Summer Camp

June 25-28, 2018 | 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.



The Ohio State Men’s Basketball Day Camp is open to any and all boys entering grades 4-9 in Fall 2018. The registration fee is $385. This camp is conducted to give campers an inside view to the Men’s Basketball program and The Ohio State University. The camp will include segments of stations and drills to help individual campers become better basketball players but will also include games and contests for a fun Buckeye experience! Campers will be grouped based on age and ability. Along with 30 hours of supervised instruction, registration includes daily lunch, T-shirt, camp ball, and other prizes. Space is limited, and this camp will sell out! Registrations are processed in the order they are received, so register early!


Camp will begin at 9:00AM and end at 4:00PM. On the first day of camp, June 25, check-in will take place beginning at 8:15AM at St. John Arena.

Camp will be headquartered at St. John Arena, which will be the drop-off and pick-up point for campers each day.

Campers should arrive ready to play: basketball shoes, shorts, T-shirt, etc. Water and Gatorade will be provided throughout camp, so campers should not bring their own water bottles. Ohio State will not be responsible for any additional items which campers bring to campus. Campers are strongly encouraged NOT to bring their own basketballs.

Family and friends are invited to the closing award ceremony at the end of camp on Thursday, June 28.


The registration fee is $400 for both days or $200 for a single day for a team and one head coach. Teams must consist of a minimum of eight players and maximum of 12. Players must be in grades 9-12 (as of Fall 2018).

The head coach must send full payment when submitting the team’s registration using this form. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis. More than one check may be used to pay the fee. Please make checks payable to The Ohio State University. Each head coach receives an Ohio State Basketball polo shirt.

Additional assistant coaches are welcome to attend with their team. There is an optional fee of $30 to purchase a polo shirt for each assistant coach.

Registration for this camp is open to any and all high school teams, provided that enrollment will be limited to the first 24 teams that submit a registration and full payment.


We expect teams will play in a shootout format, including a minimum of three games on Thursday and three games on Friday. Teams may attend both days or elect to attend on either Thursday or Friday.

All teams are required to provide basketballs (labeled with the team’s name) for practice and warm-up drills prior to games. Teams should bring dark and light jerseys, preferably reversibles.

Instruction session, use of the Jerome Schottenstein Center, St. John Arena, and the student recreation center. Two-man officiating crews on all games. Official scorer and timer provided. Coaches’ social on Thursday evening (June 8) is included in team’s registration fee.
