    Dear Coaches,

    The 2nd Annual "Ontario Junior Basketball Championships" (JBC) is a tournament that will celebrate the excellence of our young student athletes (grades 9 and 10 - athletes who are junior age that have played senior this year may participate). The JBC will look to crown a Provincial Champion of Junior Boys Basketball through a 32-team tournament from March 1-3, 2015 consisting of the best teams across the province. Through a 32 team tournament format (winners of each region + wild card invitations to other top teams across Ontario).

    - 8 pools of 4
    - 3 guaranteed games

    SWEET 16
    - 16 team single elimination bracket play

    ELITE 8
    - 8 team single elimination

    FINAL 4
    - 4 team single elimination

    Rankings

    Rankings will be based on regional record and tournament play throughout the 2013/14 season. This will allow for better tournament play and seeding.

    Prizes

    How come tournament is held before all the leagues have completed their respective seasons? Are you looking for all the best teams to attend? It will difficult for teams like St. Mikes and Macnab to send all their best junior aged players... Maybe this was done on purpose.

    The junior boys rimrocker had all the top teams except Carr.... Why would teams want to play another 32 team in the middle of their playoffs that has the SAME format as the junior boys rimrocker.....???

    because they did it last year.....try emailing or searching the website above, neither works.

    As for Carr i believe the Junior A team is technically Senior B and now play senior ball....the timing of this tournament i believe is in direct timing with ROPSSAA finals as well i am not 100%. I read somewhere finals were March 4, cant have a 5-7 game tourney (if u do well) and have a league championship the day after. This should be done March 7-9

    JBC is trying to simulate an Ofsaa type of tournament for Juniors. The main issue has always been scheduling and organization of tournament. Rimrocker will still be the #1 tourney for Juniors as it is well run, well respected and well attended.

    It can't done on March 7-8 (Ofsaa weekend). I doubt any Senior team will allow their Junior aged player to compete in JBC if they are in Ofsaa in a few days.

    I would be nice to see the current list of confirmed teams.

    The fact the email doesn't work makes this very odd. .....less than 4 weeks to go to fill a 32 team. Any teams from ottawa or Windsor available knowing it's a Sunday to Tues I highly doubt it

    If this is a junior boys CHAMPIONSHIP... why don't you invite all the regional champions? Some regions will not have an official winner before this tournament begins...

    Only one of the top five teams (ND Ajax) from the Hooptown top 16 is confirmed.... Why?

    Are any teams form Halton, Hamilton, or Windsor going to attend?

    What about Carr, Vaughan, dYouville, Holy Trinity, or St. Roch?

    See prime time u ask the best questions ......peel playoffs have yet to begin I'm sure DY will not be in it and St Roch will not be in it as I believe our championship falls in between this tournament....it's interesting cardinal Ambrozac is in it when they could do well in playoffs.....Notre Dame of Brampton is in it and won't make playoffs so clearly regional winners isn't really their mandate

    Add me to the list of critics.

    This tournament is a money grab, pure and simple. It gives itself a grandiose name with a lineup that comes nowhere close to what it claims and than charges $75 more than any other tournament. It copies the format of the closest thing we have to a true Ontario championship but runs it during a lousy calendar slot that ensures many of the champions can't or won't actually attend. On top of that it tries to jam too many games into the three days and makes a poor choice of starting on a weekend and finishing on a week day.

    We already have the Rimrocker so why bother trying to copy it?

    If they want to run a tournament go for it but don't insult everyone's intelligence with such a laughable name for it.

    I totally agree, the name is a total farce when its not a championship draw (top 3 are not even in it). Plus what's up with the prep schools in it (Bill Crothers / St. Marcellinius). Also they say timing is everything, just ask the Rim Rocker organizers.

    EXACTLY LOL.....however both were planned for quite some time but the Invitational actually has a schedule.

    This JBC should be 16 teams only. Secondly, if the participating schools senior team isnt in any of the OFSAA's then the Juniors who played Senior can play, cause if the senior team of that school is in OFSAA why even play in this. I mean Bill Crothers Jr team crushed d'youville and REDA is all grade 9s pretty much. They are the heavy favourites.

    In my honest opinion, it should be the following teams based on the previous thread posted of league winners or Top 16 (not in GTA).

    Bill Crothers, REDA, Roch, DY, Martingrove, Holy Trinity (despite the rule to make 3 players ineligible for finals), Pearson, Northern, Pickering, ND Ajax, Vaughan, Macnab, Cathedral.....leaving with 3 spots for i assume St Mikes, Ottawa and Windsor

    Or if u try for 32, than its ranked and single elimination like March Madness. But instead they charge a fee taking ANYONE who is willing to pay and will get crushed 120-20 by Crothers or REDA

    Do not get carried away with the tournament name.  It's a good concept to emulate Ofssa type of tournament for Juniors but Lets face it, this is just another tournament.  If you pay, you play.

    Gnganinja.. Don't even try ranking because you are opening up a can of worms... For example, If its just winners, why Holy Trinity? (clearly broken the rules, do they need to be rewarded).. where's the respect the other team that actually won... As I said, opening up a can of worms.. Let's just chill and wait a couple of years for all these kids to be in senior and be satisfied with Ofssa (which happens to be a wonderful tournament).

    Unless Ofssa will suddenly do an official Junior championship, it will be very hard to get all the official region winners.

    Pool A: St. Marcellinus (REDA), Bishop Reding, Central Toronto
    Pool B: Bill Crothers Prep, Sir John A Macdonald (Waterloo i believe), Ambrozic (Brampton)
    Pool C: SJK, AB Lucas, Milliken Mills
    Pool D: Notre Dame (Ajax), St. Mike's, Bill Crothers HS

    guaranteed Marcy vs BCSS Prep in the finals.....and they are listed from 1-12 so it appears they are ranked
