PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

 

The Rep Basketball Program offers opportunities to players who wish to take their game to a higher level. The focus of the rep program will be on skill and team development.  It will consist of weekly practices and participation in a number of Ontario Basketball sponsored tournaments. Players at the Rep level must demonstrate skill, athleticism and a strong commitment to learning the game of basketball. Teams will play 20 - 30 games against each season.  In 2022/2023, our teams will be competing in the Ontario Basketball League.

Before tryouts, we will be offering "Prep-For-Rep" sessions for all interested players. They are a chance for any player to get on the court in a non-evaluative format before tryouts.

PLAYER COMMITMENT:

 

Rep programs are intended for athletes who are committed and serious about playing basketball at a competitive level. We believe that multi-sport athletes are the best athletes, and we make every attempt to work with other sports organizations to minimize conflicts.  We hope that players have a 1A sport and a 1B sport, not a first and second sport.  For example, if a player misses their other sport due to a basketball game or tournament, we fully support that player choosing their other sport the next time a conflict occurs.

 

TYPICAL SCHEDULE:

 

During the season teams will practice 1 - 2 times a week on Monday and/or Wednesday nights and play 20 - 30 games in a season.

REP PROGRAM FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

 

Q: My child also plays a second sport during the winter, can they try out?
A: ABSOLUTELY!  We think that multi-sport athletes are the best kind.  Our coaches will work with you and your child to minimize conflicts.

 

Q: Is it really only $350 to register to play a rep sport?
A: ABSOLUTELY!  There are some additional costs related to travel and accommodations at the season progresses, but we take great pride in offering a low registration cost that has not increased in the past 5 years!

 

Q: Do players need prior experience to try out for a rep team?
A: ABSOLUTELY NOT!  One of our rep program objectives is individual skill development, so it doesn't matter what level a player starts at, only that they are willing to work hard to improve each and every time on the court.
