Rep Basketball Program

Rep basketball requires a significant time commitment from players and their families during the season. The East York Rep program is intended for young athletes who are committed to learning and developing their skills and are serious about playing basketball at a competitive level. As a member of a rep team players and their families must recognize that participation requires a commitment to their teammates and the coaching staff.

Each week during the season there could be 1-2 practices plus league games. Teams will also participate in weekend tournaments during the season – some of which will be out of town. Team schedules will be determined by the coaching staff.

The season culminates with the Ontario Basketball Association’s Provincial Championships, which takes place in early April through late May depending on the age group.

Players selected for a rep team will be required to pay rep fees of $650 to $1,200, as determined by the coaching staff, that will cover most team related expenses. In addition families are responsible for their own out of town expenses.
