EAST YORK BASKETBALL CLUB

Our philosophy at the East York Basketball Club (EYBC) is to teach our youth teamwork, leadership and community through basketball.  Since 2005, EYBC has developed a grassroots, not-for-profit, program which is dedicated to providing our youth the opportunity to grow both athletically and socially.

EYBC supports both House League and Rep Programs.

HOUSE LEAGUE

The House League is co-ed and focuses on skills development, participation and fun. It runs from mid September to before March Break, with breaks for Thanksgiving and the Xmas, New Year period.

All sessions are 1.5 hours long except for Tyke, which runs for one full hour. The first part of each session will be devoted to teaching the fundamentals of the game with instruction and drills. The second portion will be House League games with coaches and referees.

All participants are provided a reversible jersey with a number and an appropriately sized basketball at the first session of the season. Participants are asked to bring their ball to each session so that they can fully participate in the drills.

All House League activity takes place at Cosburn Middle School on Saturdays.

REP TEAMS

Each year numerous competitive (Rep) teams are organized to participate in OBA sanctioned games and tournaments competing against other clubs. Teams are chosen following try-outs in mid Fall and run through to OBA championship weekends in the Spring for each age group. Each team manages their own budget, making decisions about uniforms, equipment and the number of tournaments they participate in.

CLUB GOVERNANCE

East York Basketball Club is a not-for-profit organization managed by a Board of Directors and is a member of the Ontario Basketball Association. As the Club continues to grow in membership and programs, the need for volunteers also grows. If you are interested in helping the youth of Toronto in learning about basketball please volunteer. We are always looking for competent and enthusiastic House League supervisors, House League coaches, managers and referees. If your interest is more in helping with the Rep program please contact the Club by email at info[at]eastyorkbasketball.com. If you just want to help, but know very little about basketball we will help you to learn about this great game. Let us help you so that you can help others.
