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

Dear Silver Knights Family,

Silver Knights Basketball, sadly, like most sports clubs has been unable to acquire YRDSB or YCDSB (nor the French Board) gym space to run our iconic esteemed York Region programs.  We are hopeful that such programs will be initiated soon, as our children desperately require active engagement for both physical health and mental wellness.

YSSK Basketball has a few competitive rep ball coaches who have taken the initiative to fortunately obtain very limited gym space, either privately or through local Community Centers.  The following are the teams currently going forward and presenting new and special opportunity:
