Equipment Night

NE Ohio Regional Basketball Tournament


The games will now be held over the course of the next 2-4 weeks using gyms available in the NE Region….including our Windfall gym….with limited spectators (one per athlete).
Game scheduling details will be communicated with both Medina basketball teams as they occur – the NE Ohio Special Olympics Regional director is working hard to form the brackets for each division in lieu of the last minute changes in dates, times and locations. I wanted to communicate this with everyone in the event people planned to travel to Wooster to support our basketball teams.
