Silver Knights Elite Rep Teams

York South Silver Knights offers an opportunity for our most passionate players to compete and strive towards excellence at a premier level of basketball by participating on one of our many rep teams. Silver Knights offers rep Ontario Basketball Association competitive teams for both boys and girls at all levels from grade 4 to grade 12. All teams compete in the OBA Championships held in early spring.

In order to ensure excellence in instruction and coaching, York Silver Knights Club have selected master instructor Coach Tom Oliveri as their Head Coach with his mandate to improve significantly the quality of basketball played in York Region.

Efforts are towards those athletes who aspire to succeed at the level of their potential ability, who through high standards deeply desire to get better … and experience the joy of achievement while building character. Our organization envisions players who developed and honed their skill through Silver Knights programs, attaining basketball scholarships in the U.S. and playing for the Canadian National Team at the Olympics

If there is any interest please contact the coaches directly.

Rep Tryout Info

Tryouts will take place over two weekends: September 7/8 and 14/15 (SEE TRY OUT SCHEDULE BELOW)

LOCATION:

All tryouts will take place at Alexander Mackenzie High School (300 Major Mackenzie Drive West, Richmond Hill, ON L4C 3S3) on September 7, 8, 14, and 15, 2019.  Enter the school parking lot from Trench St (across from the hospital) and go straight past the gate to arrive at the back of the school (north side of school).  Parking and gym entrance are located at the back of the school by the playing fields.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1.  Please bring a printed copy of the tryout form and the $20 tryout fee to register prior to your first tryout (link to form below).   This $20 charge allows any player to try out for as many teams as they wish (remember your assigned number at the time of on-site registration).  Each player will be numbered with washable markers.

  2. Please arrive 15 minutes earlier with your completed form and $20, to finalize registration and be assigned a number before the tryout start time.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

If you have any questions about the specific team you are trying out for, please contact the Coach for the team.  All other questions can be directed to Joe Spineto.

Teams needing a coach will not have tryouts unless a coach is found.  If your daughter/son’s age group does not have a coach/tryout times, please consider trying out for a higher age group.  For example, we presently need a coach for the U15 Midget Girls, so your daughter born in 2005 might consider trying out for the U16 Major Midget Girls rep team (born in 2004 or later) which has tryout dates/times posted.  If you have an interest in coaching any team presently needing a coach, please contact Joe Spineto
