Rep teams are comprised of Brantford CYO house-league players who try out and are selected to the team by the coaches.

The teams will compete in a league, participate in tournaments and play in exhibition games. Exact schedules will be determined by each coach. The season will end with the Ontario Basketball provincial championships. Teams will normally practice three times a week (two during the week and once on weekends). As part of the Brantford Hawk Rep Basketball team, we require that all players make a 100% commitment to the team, if you are unable to make the commitment, please contact the coach during tryouts.

The cost per player is between $450 and $650 depending on the team schedule.  As well, each player selected will be responsible for purchasing their own uniform from the designated uniform supplier. The cost is estimated at $150 per player. In our elementary age groups, every player must be registered in our house league program to be eligible to try out for our rep teams – click here for details and registration links.

Brantford CYO Hawks Rep Basketball follows the rules of Basketball Ontario with respect to player participation:

Novice and Atom: All games are structured based on equal playing time, as defined by Basketball Ontario.

Bantam to Juvenile: There is no minimum playing time per player. However, the coaches of the Brantford Rep Basketball teams will endeavor to maximize the playing time for all team members.  The amount of time may be dependent upon several factors: 1) the caliber of the opponent, 2) the substitution patterns of the opponent, 3) the actual game situation, 4) practice attendance, etc. Every coach has been advised that every player on a should have a positive experience.
