2016 Winter Clinics-Grades 3-5

OTE's skills clinics are tailored to boys and girls in grades 3-5 who are interested in developing the fundamentals of basketball:

  • Ball handling
  • Footwork
  • Shooting
  • Conditioning

Clinics will be held for 8 weeks every Monday and Wednesday starting October 17 from 4pm-5pm.

We highly recommend that your child attend all clinics as each clinic teaches different skill drills and builds on prior techniques and skills.

Clinics are run by our senior travel ball coaching staff. All clinics are held at 6125 N Cicero Ave, Chicago.

Registration will be open August 25 to all boys and girls in grades 3-5.


Thanks to all players who attended our summer camps! We had a record turnout and look forward to seeing everyone back in 2017!

OTE'S Basketball Overnight Weekend

OTE is more than just basketball training and development; we promote team building and family. Our 10th annual family getaway was this weekend, Feb. 27-28 at Key Lime Cove.This year we had 115 OTE families join us for a weekend of basketball, swimming, family dinners and team bonding. Take a look at some of the fun photos below.

This event has continually been a huge success in the past and we look forward to next year.

Thanks to all 355 OTE family members who participated!
