In order to foster the growth of competitive basketball in Welland, WMBA is committed to providing rep (travel - competitive) teams at each age group.
Registration is required but no fees are needed at this time. Registration fees are not required until the player has been selected by the rep team.
Upon registration a rep players will automatically have a spot reserved in our house league program. This spot will be held until the selection process has been completed providing the player the opportunity to play in our house league if not for our rep team.
Cost (once selected)
The cost of participating in our Rep (travel - competitive) basketball program is determined by each coach. Each coach is responsible for their budget and must “break even” by the end of the season. Any surplus will be refunded back to the players.
FEES: $195.00 ($80.00 plus $115.00) paid once selected by the rep team.
$80.00 for administrative costs
$115.00 will be credited to the rep team, this fee will be applied to gym costs.
ADDITIONAL FEES: Approx. $350.00 / player to cover the cost of tournaments, OBA registration, etc.
Please note: This fee is dependent on your coach's playing and practicing schedule and will be paid to the coach directly. Speak with the coach to understand the full cost of the program and any fundraising responsibilities. These fees do not cover travel cost (gas) or hotels. Tournament destinations are determined by skill level of team, and availability.
Team Selection Procedure
Players are invited to try out as per their age group. Individual coaches will pick their teams, although the club can make recommendations on the number of players per team, the player selection is the sole responsibility of the appointed coach.
