What You Need to Play

 In Players


Shoes are important equipment as they can help reduce injury. Wear supportive and appropriately sized basketball shoes when you practice or play. Basketball shoelaces must be tied to the top of the shoe.

Practice Clothing

Comfortable, light t-shirts and loose fitting shorts are recommended.

Game Clothing

Ottawa Shooting Stars provides team jerseys and shorts for the season. You are required to bring both to every game. At the end of the season you will be asked to return your uniform. Your team may decide to purchase team sweats, jackets or t-shirts for warm-ups. These decisions are made on a team-by-team basis.


It is important that you bring a full water bottle to every game, as some gyms may not have easily accessible water.


Many tournaments run canteens, so it is a good idea to bring some money. Alternatively you can bring healthy snacks that are easy to digest for between games.
