Some of the best U15 Girls’ Basketball teams will be travelling to Durham Region this weekend to compete for the Ontario Basketball Association’s championship.
Forty-five (45) teams will compete for the Ontario Cup in six divisions, from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, at various locations in the municipalities of Clarington, Oshawa and Whitby: Durham College, Abilities Centre, Brooklin High School, Father Leo Austin High School, Clarington Central Secondary School and Clarke High School.
Spectators are encouraged to attend, and there is no cost for admission to the games. You can find the Ontario Cup schedule online.
As part of the legacy for this championship, a donation will be made to Their Opportunity. This organization helps to ensure that more children have a chance to play sports, despite their economic situation.
Basketball is an important part of the fabric of our sports culture here in Durham Region. We love the sounds of “bounce, bounce, squeak” and of course, “swish!”
We’re proud that the Ontario Basketball Association is headquartered here, and we are appreciative of the opportunity to host this championship.
We’re proud of all our players with university and college teams in the NCAA, OUA and OCAA, including three-time All Canadian Lindsay Panchan and all-time leading scorer Ajahmo Clarke, both with our Durham College Lords. Plus, we are especially proud of Cory Joseph of the Toronto Raptors, who grew up in Pickering!
We’re proud to partner on hosting these championships with the Whitby Wildcats and Clarington Basketball. We want to thank them for their efforts and we look forward to future partnership opportunities to help grow players, coaches and the sport.
Best wishes for a memorable weekend to all teams competing in the championship. We hope that you will find time to enjoy some fine restaurants, attractions, retail outlets, and experience the beauty of Durham Region. If you do, we know you will come back soon to visit.
