Use of Manage a Collection as backend content manager for repeater?

I’m wondering whether it is possible to create a new collection and use a true / false or yes / no field to determine whether that collection is shown as a repeater item. The reason for this is that it would give me control over content availability on a members page as opposed to showing all repeater items and allowing the user to show/hide

if this is possible would someone be able to show me a very basic example with code so i can try it please

Thanks
Adam
