Competitive Season

Competitive teams participate in games as part of the Ontario Basketball League East (OBL-East).

A typical season includes try-outs in September with games running from the middle of October to the middle of May (length of season depends on the age bracket). Once formed, teams typically start the year with a pre-season tournament, will play 10-12 regular season games and will participate in an OBL-East year-end tournament. Coaches may elect to add additional games throughout the season. Typically, competitive teams travel to at least one out-of-town tournament. Travel, meal and accommodation charges are the responsibility of players/parents.

Competitive Game Schedule

For planning purposes OBL-East games for each age bracket are scheduled on pre-assigned weekends that are announced at the beginning of the season.

Specific game times, locations and opponents will be posted as the season progresses.

Schedules, standings and playing dates, for all ages and divisions, are available by clicking on the Ontario Basketball League East link at http://www.eobaclub.com/.
