Our competitive program competes in the EOBA (Eastern Ontario Basketball Association) against other top teams from the area. A typical competitive season will see teams take part in 2+ practices per week, plus league games and tournaments. We will be offering competitive teams at the following age groups this year:
This year we hope to offer a AAA and AA team at select age groups pending numbers.
Tryout fees for the 2023-24 season are $25 and must be paid in advance once the registration has opened up. Please consult the "Age Classifications" tab if you are unsure what level your child should sign up for.
Tryout dates for each age group will be announced closer to September once we receive the last of our permits back from the school boards.
Our house league program competes against other local clubs, with one practice and one game per week.
Gym times and locations are often the same each week, allowing parents to plan other activities around their child's basketball schedule.
The House League program also offers less travel than the competitive model, with most games/practices being centrally located in Ottawa.
Please note that at the House League level, players compete in 2 year cohorts. For the 2023-24 season they are as follows:
- U12 (born 2012 or 2013)
- U14 (born 2010 or 2011)
- U16 (born 2008 or 2009)
- U19 (born 2005, 2006 or 2007)
Cost for the season is $425, with sort outs taking place in September and the season running through until late March/early April.
Sort outs aim to balance the skill level on teams. Players are permitted to submit up to 2 "friend requests" ahead of the season.
Because we run multiple teams at each age level, parents may also submit up to one evening they do not wish to practice on. This allows us to sort players onto balanced teams, while pairing them up with friends, on a schedule that works for them.
Friend/evening requests will be collected closer to September.
OSS also offers developmental programs for the youngest basketball fans in your family.
These programs focus on skill development, small sided games, and having fun.
Players will learn to pass, shoot, and dribble from our experienced coaching staff, while taking part in 3v3 games, and "Fun Day" festivals against other local teams.
