On away contests all student athletes will have hotel accommodations. Each room will have a minimum of two student athletes with a maximum of four. This will be based on funding and room availability.
It is important to note that all players and staff will return home for any away contests within a 3 hour drive.
All students athletes will be transported to and from games with the team. Transportation will be provided by SWOPA coaches. Families wishing to take their student after games are permitted to do so with prior communication with a member of the coaching staff.
Our goal is to prepare you for the next level. Part of doing so is giving you the best opportunity to see how you compete verses the best competition possible. We will play a 30+ game schedule verses other prep schools, NCAA D3 programs, Junior College programs, and NAIA programs. It is important to note that the schedule will always be adjusted to give our program the best chance at playing the best competition possible.
Southwest Ohio Preparatory Academy will purchase a Hudl account. Every game will be recorded and each athlete will be given access to the account to create their own personal highlight film. Our coaches will review all highlights before allowing student athletes to send them out. This is to ensure that the athlete has the best film possible to send to college coaches.
One of the biggest objectives our program has is to get you to the next level. Our staff will sit down with you and discuss where you see yourself and where we believe you are. We all want to play at a NCAA Division 1 Program, and we will do our best to get you to that level. Yet we also want to help you find the best fit for you academically and athletically. Each student athelete will meet with the staff to discuss the best possible options and opportunities available specifically for them. Please remember the goal is a free education. Basketball is secondary.
