Ohio Youth Sports Preparatory (O.Y.S.P) was founded by President/CEO Paren Fisher in 2009 with a vision of using Basketball & Other Sports to Impact the Lives of our Youth. Our program aims to teach Athletes how to Achieve EXCELLENCE On and Off the Court by Fostering GOOD CHARACTER and POSITIVE SPORTSMANSHIP in our young Athletes!
We offer Youth in Central Ohio an opportunity to Participate in a variety of Team Sports throughout the calendar year. These experiences provide a source of recreation and as a result improve Athletic Ability, Health and Fitness and most importantly offer experiences for Youth to participate in a structured setting that promotes teamwork and sportsmanship.
Ohio Youth Sports Preparatory offer the following Services. We offer much more, but the three main three are:
- AAU Basketball Program
- Personal Training
- Basketball Clinics & Camps
We seek to serve all “Interested Athletes” from Kindergarten – 12th Grade
THERE ARE NO EXPECTATIONS REGARDING SKILL OR EXPERIENCE, ONLY THE DESIRE TO PARTICIPATE.
It is the mission of the Ohio Youth Sports Preparatory (O.Y.S.P.) program to develop “Champions for Life” through sport in three critical areas: ACADEMIC INTEGRITY, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, and COMPETITIVE ATHLETIC EXCELLENCE. Our goal is to instill a code of ethics built on honesty, the ideas of responsibility, hard work, sportsmanship, teamwork and fellowship to provide opportunities for youth to excel not only as an athlete but as a citizen of their community!
Individual training offer athletes the best value for their investment. With a private lesson, the athlete will work one-on-one with an instructor, receiving personalized instruction and immediate correction. In learning the best methods, one-on-one, both beginning and advanced athletes will find they progress faster and more easily.
Our clinics will consist of certified trainers who specialize in coordinating work-outs to where the entire focus is on technical proficiency. Players attend the workouts to improve on shooting mechanics, ball handling and open court moves. Clinics are not intended to be fun, this will be a classroom on the basketball court; setting up a learning environment for players and to put them through repetitive drills. Players must be prepared to deal with critical evaluations as our trainers evaluate their talents and implement changes to improve their game.
Our annual summer basketball camps are designed to teach youth the basic fundamentals of basketball with emphasis on skill development through station work. Our skilled staff brings Division 1 college experience, NBA, WNBA and International experience with them to pass their knowledge on to our campers.
