The Anthony Wayne Generals Travel Basketball (AWGTB)
program is for Boys Travel Basketball - Grades 3-6

Season Highlights

AWGTB is pleased to announce tryout dates for our 7th season. Last season our teams participated in leagues at Defiance, Perrysburg, Maumee, and Eastwood as well as in several local and regional tournaments in NW Ohio, NE Indiana & SE Michigan. One highlight of the season was all 4 of our 5th & 6th grade teams played at half time of a BGSU men’s game in the Stroh Center, and all of our teams got on the court at an AWHS boys game. We continue to use our financial resources, in addition to our gifts of time & talent of our board members and school coaching staff, to further develop our players and volunteer parent coaches. Our goal is to continue to build an elite youth basketball program and to provide our players, coaches and families the best organized basketball experience possible.

AWGTB Purpose Statement

The Anthony Wayne Generals Travel Basketball Program exists for the purpose of creating an atmosphere and environment where young athletes within the Anthony Wayne school system can learn to compete at a high level while at the same time developing as young men.

Our purpose will be accomplished through:

  • a thorough and fair evaluation and selection process

  • teaching the fundamentals of basketball, the value of hard work, the importance of discipline, and the life-long lessons of teamwork

  • competing against high levels of competition within and outside of northwest Ohio

  • at all times operating with integrity, character, honesty and sportsmanship as we represent our families, school and community

The Anthony Wayne Youth Foundation is preparing for another season of boys travel basketball, for grades 3-6. This is an exciting opportunity for boys that live within the school district or attend Anthony Wayne Local Schools, and have a desire to learn the game of basketball and play at a high level of competition. The opportunity is intended to prepare the boys for junior high and high school basketball at Anthony Wayne.
