Swampdonkeys Competitive Teams


As players move through the skill development camps and through house league, their skills and confidence as athletes improve. Because of this, the organization attempts to put competitive teams on the court every season. Rep teams come about through the organization's understanding that an age group has the capacity to compete at a Rep level. Each season, the Donkeys have tryouts for both girls and boys, attempting to put these teams together.

Players join a Rep team through a tryout system, implemented by our OBA certified coaches, who have years of experience at the competitive level of basketball. Players who try out for respective teams need to meet the skill, attitude, and commitment levels needed to keep these teams growing and competitive.

Costs and Commitments

KL Swampdonkey Rep teams really do mean business! As the kids grow, coaches anticipate the lives of their players, and schedule accordingly. We take it easy at first (u12), then increase our development in the middle years (U14-U16), and finally roll with the punches (older kids have work and academic responsibilities that are growing) at the older, U19 groups. 

The costs associated with playing on a Rep team are $700 for the season, not including transportation, accommodation, and meals. However, please remember, as a Rep team member, your dedication to practice, games, and tournaments is expected.

Rep teams will practice 2 times during weekdays. Younger teams will practice earlier in the evening, with older players later at night. You can anticipate that most weekends between November and May are privy to game and tournament bookings. Please consider this before trying out for a team.
