About COBA

Established in 1999 when COBBA and COGBA merged, Central Ohio Basketball Association is the Premiere Travel Basketball league in Central Ohio. Focusing on fundamental development and preparation for Middle and High School Basketball. Our teams are Directed by Varsity Coaches, Youth Program Admins, Program Directors, and OHSAA Officials to ensure the best quality development and experience for youth athletes.

We are fortunate to have the finest youth basketball programs in our league. DYA, PYAA, OYAA, WYB, BVYBA, Big Walnut, Delaware, SW Schools, Gahanna, New Albany, Westerville, Newark, Licking Heights, Reynoldsburg, Hilliard, Columbus City, Africentric, London, Lancaster, Fairfield Union, Canal Winchester

Unlike some programs, the majority of our funds go back to the schools. All tournament and Preview proceeds go to the hosting schools and benefit their programs.  We have had more players go on to play in College and some in the NBA than any youth program in Central Ohio.

Central Ohio Basketball is Central Ohio's oldest true AAU Club.
