Ontario basketball league

The purpose of Ontario Basketball League (OBL) is to provide an inclusive, age- and ability-appropriate, province-wide league structure that provides meaningful competition for athletes of both genders in all age categories (U10 Novice to U19 Junior) to promote safe and stage-appropriate athlete development according to Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles.

The incredible inaugural season of the OBL saw 484 participating teams, 3,000 scheduled games and an OBL All-Star Showcase at the end of the season.

Additionally, Ontario Basketball was pleased to partner with the NBA to provide U14 Major Bantam teams with a Gatorade-sponsored OBL weekend that served as a qualifying tournament for the Gatorade Invitational Finals that took place during the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto at the Enercare Centre.

Looking to build on the successes of the first season, Ontario Basketball is pleased to introduce an elite division (OBLX) for the top 14 teams in the U14 Major Bantam to U19 Junior divisions in the 2016-17 season. Also new this year is the intuitive OBL website, which will help gulde teams through the registration process, keep teams connected to the latest results and standings, and display media coverage of OBL weekends.
