ABOUT ONBI

The Ontario Native Basketball Invitational (ONBI) brings together teams from across Ontario to compete in a friendly, yet competitive invitational tournament. Youth ages 11-19 travel with their teams and family members to compete and have fun. With a number of cultural and leadership activities offered throughout the entire tournament, ONBI builds confidence, creates friendships and strengthens communities, while creating opportunities for Indigenous youth to participate in competitive sport with their peers. The ONBI is also an identifier for participation in the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG).

Registration Info

Registration for ONBI may be done as a team, through the coach, or as individual players who will be assigned to a team. All players, whether registering individually or as part of a team, must create an account and submit the required information, including emergency contact information, health information and sign-off on waivers.

Payment can be made by individual athletes or by the coach for the entire team. Payment options include payment online by a credit card, by e-transfer, or by certified cheque/money order (detailed instructions and prompts are included in the registration system).

Registration fees are as follows:

  • Individual Athlete Registration Fee – $30.00 (CAD, inclusive of taxes) 
  • Team Registration Fee – $250.00 (CAD, inclusive of taxes)
Please note that while ISWO will make every effort to place individual players on a team, we may not be able to place all players; those players unable to be placed on a team, will be notified and receive a full refund for their registration fee (if paid).

Registration is now open. Please contact zach.fraleigh@iswo.ca to register or for more information.
