Important Information

Rep basketball offers a competitive option for athletes who are looking to have fun, improve their individual and team play, and push their limits at the same time. In order to achieve these goals rep basketball requires a significant time commitment from players and their parents 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 parents must recognize that participation requires a commitment to their teammates and the coaching staff. As such, it is very difficult for athletes to play competitive basketball and another competitive sport in the winter season.

Each week during the season there could be 1-3 practices or games. Teams play 2 to 6 weekend tournaments during the season mostly within the GTA, which typically include games on Friday evenings. Teams generally will participate in at least one out of town tournament. Exhibition games may also be selectively scheduled on weekdays or weekends. The number of tournaments and games will be determined by the coaching staff in consultation with the players and parents.

The tournament season culminates with the Ontario Basketball Association’s Provincial Championships, “The Ontario Cup” or “OBAs”, which takes place in late March through late May depending on the age group. The season ends at this time, though some teams may continue to hold practices and games after this tournament depending on interest and gym availability.

Players selected for a rep team will be required to pay a fee of $650 to $1,000 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.
