End of Season Update

OBA families,


We are headed into the final weekend of the 2023/24 CMBA season and we wanted to take an opportunity to say thank you to all of our players, coaches and families for another great season!


Thank you to our players for your hard work in practice to grow your skills and in games where you saw those skills really shine. Thank you to our coaches for helping these young athletes build their skills and learn about the ups and downs of competition. Thank you to our families for your incredible support of our teams through the season. We hope you're ready to cheer loudly for one more game this weekend!


As the season is finishing we do ask that everyone remember to hand in your uniform to you coach following your final game. We will be arranging to collect all team uniforms from the coaches next week.


For those looking to continue with basketball in the spring season, registration is currently open until March 8th with full details available here.


Basketball within Okotoks continues to grow and we look forward to seeing you all in a gym again very soon!


Best of luck to everyone in your last games of the season.

OBA 2024 Spring Club Basketball - Info, Tryout Schedule & Registration Link

We are excited to share, OBA 2024 Spring Club Tryout Registration is OPEN!

There are significant differences between Club and Community basketball.  Below we will highlight the most frequently asked questions as a way to help you make the best decision for your athlete and your family when it comes to playing ball with OBA this spring.   

Please note should Club Teams not be for you and your family, we will be sending more information out regarding the spring community season in the first couple weeks of February.  

  • OBA will have a club team at each level U11-High School for each boys and girls  
  • Club Teams are highly competitive and begin earlier than the Community teams, there are no border exclusions for players, enabling them to tryout anywhere they would like
  • There is a $25 tryout fee per athlete, this is non-refundable and covers the cost of gym rentals
  • The fees for Club Teams are higher than that of community teams, the reasons being; more practice time, longer season, tournaments; which may include travel (Including a spot in the very successful OBA Club tournament), specialized Club apparel for the athletes, coach reimbursement for tournament travel, etc. The fees are anticipated to be around $1000 per athlete. Please note U11 may be lower
  • Club Teams will practice more than a community team; with at least two, hour and a half practices a week, which are expected to be attended
  • The Club season will run from the middle of March into July, being tournament dependant
  • OBA has the infrastructure, knowhow and creativeness to offer each club team a unique, customized experience whether they want to compete in league, tournaments, travel experiences or all of the aforementioned. During the online registration process you will have an opportunity to share your opinion on these topics
  • After tryouts, players who were successful in making their team, will be contacted via email and offered a spot. We are aware that some athletes will be trying out for more than one Club Team, therefore, in order to secure our teams and begin practicing as soon as able, once you are contacted you will have 48 hours to advise OBA of your decision and pay your non-refundable $250 team commitment deposit or your spot will be offered to another athlete
  • Coaches for some teams have been selected and we know this is a deciding factor for some families therefore our selected coaches are:


  • U15 Girls = Janette Lybbert & Jordan Hick
  • U15 Boys = Ken Zelez
  • HS Girls = Andrew Gustafson
  • HS Boys = Blake Husky & Uday Dhillon


*Should other coaches be decided on before tryouts you will be notified at tryouts*   

The bottom line is, we know we have some incredibly talented athletes and excellent coaches within OBA and we offer a fantastic Club basketball experience. We are excited to see you at tryouts and know that 2024 will be as successful as years previous, if not more so!

Athletes are required to attend one out of two tryouts in order to be considered for the Club Teams, however it is preferable to attend both enabling a well-rounded evaluation opportunity for the athlete. Zero exceptions will be made

OBA 2024 Spring Club Basketball - Save The Date Update


The basketball community within Okotoks and area continues to grow and with that comes the opportunity to address the feedback that has been received about our upcoming Club tryout dates. With respect to the current teams and their active season we are working around that to hold Club tryouts so as not to take away their valuable practice times.

We value all of our association members and want to be able to offer year-round programs that continue to grow our community. We are going to be adding additional Club tryout dates on two Friday evenings to offer flexibility to all who want to tryout.

We haven’t been able to reply to each individual email, but please know we have read them, and we are taking these into consideration as we adjust the tryout schedule to better serve our basketball community.

As we secure the additional gym time we will update everyone on the schedule details and the registration.
