Wheelchair Basketball League
The Great Lakes Conference is the provincial wheelchair basketball league in Ontario
and part of the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball League (CWBL). It features three separate
divisions to allow for players of all ages, abilities, and skill levels to participate. Athletes must be registered OWSA members in order to play in the Great Lakes Conference.
Division 1 (Elite)
This division is meant for experienced athletes seeking to compete at a highly competitive level.
There will be no Divison 1 (Elite) schedule for the 2016-2017 season. All competing teams will play in Division 2 (Competitive) due to the number of participating teams.
Division 2 (Competitive)
This division is meant for skilled athletes seeking to compete at an intermediately competitive level. Tournaments feature a round robin format of three teams and are held twice a month throughout the season. View the 2016-2017 Division 2 (Competitive) league schedule & results here.
Division 3 (Recreational)
Division 3 offers tournaments in both 3×3 and 5×5 formats as well as full-day skills clinics open to all athletes looking to develop and improve their skills in a fun and social, yet challenging environment. Clinics are facilitated by a team of OWSA wheelchair basketball coaches and sport wheelchairs are provided for participants who do not possess their own.
Division 3 events are held approximately once a month in various locations.
