About the BallMatics Elite AAU REP Basketball Team
The student-athletes on the BallMatics Elite teams enter a fun environment where they are being prepared for high performance sports and academia. The focus of our basketball program is to prepare these student-athletes to compete at the university level upon leaving high school in the years ahead. This process starts now.
Our typical AAU REP basketball team practices will include elite level skill work with speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness training. Plyometric training is also used to increase each player’s athletic ability. Fundamental and advanced basketball skills are added to the practice schedule daily. Most sessions round out with team concepts to build on all previous activities.
One practice a week will have an academic component included in the schedule. Each lesson is closely linked to the activities on court. This keeps our student-athletes aware of how sport is connected to real life. Our methods are designed to instill enthusiasm in academics and allow our student-athletes to be prepared to attain academic and athletic success.
We look forward to hosting your child at our REP basketball tryouts and hopefully developing them as part of one of our teams in the near future!
Is a REP Basketball team that marries athletics with academics right for your budding basketball prodigy? Simply put yes!
Every elite athlete needs to be academically qualified to accept an athletic scholarship. Often caregivers to exceptional talents spend a great deal focusing on helping develop and nurture their athletic abilities and forget about their need to also develop academically.
Our REP AAU Basketball team differs from most in this area. We place equal emphasis on our player’s athletic and academic development. Their level of achievement is measured based on both areas of development.
Fees for 2020-2021 Season
Upon successful completion of our REP AAU basketball tryouts we will contact you to start the administrative process.
Due to uncertainty of basketball competitions and travel, the fee structure for the 2020-2021 year is based on two training intervals.
From Nov. 2020- March 2021, the training fee is $725. Once the government of Ontario has announced plans to move to phase 4 and Ontario Basketball releases the complete guidelines for that phase, we will provide cost information for the second phase of our program. When opportunities to play in leagues (NPH REPresent, CYBL, OBA, etc.) or tournaments become available, we will adjust our plans accordingly.
Tournament and travel fees will be charged as they occur during the season.
All fees will be paid online through a secure portal. Subsidies are available for those students that qualify. You will be required to submit your most recent CRA Notice of Assessment and/or your most recent paystubs in order to complete the process. Subsidies can be up to approximately 40% of the program fee.
