OBA Teams Encouraged to Participate in the Play-In

Ontario Basketball (OBA) is excited to officially welcome the basketball competition season starting in October with the Play-In pre-season tournament in partnership with the Canadian Youth Basketball League (CYBL).

The Play-In, similar to the Ontario Fall Shootout in 2018, will continue with the pre-season festival environment that allows teams to slowly get back into a fun, competitive, and – most importantly – safe basketball environment. As health and safety continues to be a priority for OBA, the Play-In will follow Step 3 of the government re-opening guidelines and apply strict enforcement of provincial vaccination protocols and exemptions.

The pre-season tournament will be open to all OBA affiliated clubs and teams. We encourage teams to participate in sanctioned pre-season events such as the Play-In as it will assist OBA with determining initial Ontario Basketball League (OBL) rankings for this year. In addition, OBA will be hosting a Learn-to-Train coaching clinic, with more details to follow.
