About the OIMBL

Welcome to the Ottawa Intermediate Mens' Basketball League (OIMBL). The OIMBL is a competitive league that has been operating in the Ottawa area since the 1990's. The league runs on Sundays at Algonquin College.

The OIMBL season is played over a 21 week regular season schedule (depending on gym availability) and is based on a "ladder system". Depending on registration, there can be up to 6 ladder tiers. Playoffs involving all teams are held at the end of the season, with playoff seeding based on team rankings over the course of the season. All regular season and play-off matches are refereed by the Ottawa Valley Board of Approved Basketball Officials (OVBABO).

Registration for the season (which runs from October to April) is held in August of each year and is conducted through the OIMBL website. League fees include regular season and playoff play. OIMBL accepts team registrations only. However, if you wish to register as a spare, you may do so by creating a user account, then creating a Player Profile. Registering as a spare does not automatically guarantee inclusion onto a team; it does however provide team captains with a list of potential players that they may call upon over the course of the season.

The above information covers many of the more frequently asked questions pertaining to the league. Should you require additional or more specific information please contact us or refer to the OIMBL Constitution.
