Each team must assess their own risk when making the decision to travel due to weather or other extenuating circumstances. It is not possible for Ontario Basketball to assess each team’s travel situation. It is recommended that weather and road conditions be checked prior to commencing travel.
Any decision to cancel games due to weather concerns will be published by Ontario Basketball here and will be communicated via e-mail to coaches. If no cancellation notice is published, it should be assumed that games will continue as scheduled. School boards have the authority to cancel any permit with very limited notice without consulting the permit holder or Ontario Basketball. However, these instances are out of OBA’s control and we will do our best to communicate these cancellations as soon as notification is received.
If games are cancelled by OBA, 100% of the game fee will be refunded. If games are not cancelled, any teams that withdraw due to weather concerns, will not be reimbursed their game fee, and will still be credited as having participated in the games as forfeits. Please note that it is highly unlikely that cancelled games will be rescheduled.
