A few words from the OTE family...
For the fourth year in a row, every OTE 8th grade girls and boys alum who played during our winter-spring seasons made their freshman, JV or varsity teams at high school tryouts. This year it was 32 out of 32 8th graders from our 2017-18 winter-spring seasons that made the jump into high school programs, including Loyola, Whitney Young, Ignatius, Payton, Main South, Jones Prep, Resurrection, Notre Dame, Lincoln Park, Maine East, Niles West, Regina, Von Steuben, Shurz and more. Since 2003, more than 90 percent of OTE alums have gone on to play high school basketball. OTE is proud of all of them. Go Edge!
Thank you to all the players who tried out these past four days. We evaluated over 260 boys and girls and saw lots of talent. Rosters will be posted by Thursday under the TEAM tab.
Summer Camps will be held for Boys and Girls entering Grades 2-8 Focus will be on the OTE Fundamentals:

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!
