During each basketball season, Ontario Basketball sanctions upwards of 600 tournaments hosted by affiliated clubs. The purpose of tournaments being sanctioned is that the host, in applying to have the tournament sanctioned, agrees to abide by all rules, policies and practices of OBA. Thus, the sanctioning is designed to ensure that the teams who are participating, experience a standard which meets Ontario Basketball guidelines.
All teams that are registered for the Provincial Championships are required to play in a minimum of one sanctioned tournament during the season.
Any affiliated club and sanctioned partner in good standing with Ontario Basketball and in at least their second year of operation as an affiliated club is eligible to have their tournament sanctioned by Ontario Basketball. If your club is not an affiliated member, please click on the affiliated clubs link on the navigation bar on the left hand side of this page for more information on the benefits of club affiliation.
Process involved in having your tournament sanctioned by Ontario Basketball:
FIBA SCORESHEETS MUST BE USED DURING ALL LISTED SANCTIONED TOURNAMENTS. Scoresheets can be purchase from the Basketball Store.
Before you apply for sanctioning, please download the Sanctioned Tournament Hosting Package to review all requirements of your member club for hosting a sanctioned tournament.
