Devon Woods and Cindy Bates founded the Ottawa Shooting Stars with sixteen ten and eleven year old girls. The girls had fun, but won none of their games.
The club further expanded to two Minor Bantam teams. This was the first year the teams participated in the provincials.
The club added a girls Bantam division with two “A” competitive teams and a Minor Bantam team. One of the “A” teams led the EOBA the entire season, but came short of winning the end-of-season championship.
The Stars partnered with the Ottawa Rookies to include a Midget level.
The club has expanded to over 400 boys and girls in both the competitive and house league sides, regularly winning multiple OBA and EOBA championships. And with the addition of Small Ball and Novice programs, players as young as 4 years old are developing a passion for basketball.
