Welcome and thank you for taking time to learn more about the St. Peter Chanel men’s basketball program.
The St. Peter Chanel Men’s Basketball Program annually prides itself in playing one of the most difficult schedules in the entire State of Ohio, regardless of classification. The 2011-2012 season will be no different as, once again, the Firebirds face an extremely challenging non-conference schedule as well as competing in one of the most competitive conferences in the entire state of Ohio, The North Coast League.
In the last 10 years, the NCL has been represented in the State Semi-Finals an amazing 8 times with VASJ (‘06, ‘07 & ‘08), Central Catholic (‘02, ’09 & ‘11) and Chanel (‘03, ‘08, ‘10) all reaching the State “Final Four” in Columbus.

College coaches can frequently be seen attending Chanel open gyms, practices and games and due to the strength of its schedule, many former ‘Birds have been “discovered” as a result of a coach in attendance to watch other athletes.
Every year, student/athletes of St. Peter Chanel receive thousands of dollars in academic and athletic scholarships to colleges and universities throughout the country.
And specifically, the men’s basketball program has had many student-athletes move on to compete in intercollegiate athletics. Some of the Firebird Basketball Alum are:
