News and Announcements
We have just been informed of the following from the board:
- “As a result of CUPE job sanctions including work-to-rule and partial withdrawal of services which came into place September 30, 2019, the Near North District School Board will be suspending ALL Community Use of Schools effective October 2, 2019 until further notice.”
We will have to cancel all REP and House League Basketball for now until further notice.
We will keep you posted about any changes. Please communicate directly with your coaches with any questions. We are working on some alternate solutions for our REP team TRYOUTS, so please watch for correspondence directly from the coaches.
Thank you for your patience in this situation. Please support those involved and let’s hope for a speedy solution for everyone’s sake.

NEW*** Most sporting organizations in Ontario are putting into place concussion education for all players and parents. This year will focus mainly on our REP players and coaches. However, the links are here and available to all parents who want to review the very important information with their children.
Please read the message from Ontario Basketball below:
Rowan’s Law consists of mandatory concussion education for all coaches and athletes. Please note that every member of your team will be required to complete this education before you can register for OBL/OBA Championships. It is worth noting that even if you have previous concussion education, you will still be required to complete this education.
Please review the information found in the tab on our website. If you are a REP parent or player please watch your email for the information that will need to be reviewed. More information will follow once our teams are chosen.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
Together we will keep our children active and safe!
All of our REP Teams have their TRYOUTS set and are ready to ROCK! Registrations have been pouring in but there are still a few spaces for players on our teams.
