Let $G$ be a finite group. The unit sphere in a finite-dimensional orthogonal $G$-representation motivates the definition of homotopy representations, due to tom Dieck. We introduce an algebraic analogue and establish its basic properties, including the Borel-Smith conditions and realization by finite $G$-CW-complexes.
