Werribee Basketball - Events & Camps



Werribee Basketball is pleased to open registrations for the 2020 Werribee Devils Junior Representative Program Tryouts.

What is VJBL & what is Representative Basketball?

The Melb Utd. Victorian Junior Basketball League incorporates competitions conducted state-wide and provides the highest level of junior competition in Victoria. Melb Utd. VJBL boasts almost 1300 representative teams from over 55 associations across Victoria. The competition includes the U12 to U21 age groups, in a graded structure from Victorian Junior Championship League to the Regional Competition. The Victorian Junior Championship League serves as a benchmark for excellence in competition and is the premier competition for junior teams in Victoria. The VJBL has been a key pathway for many of Australia's best players including Andrew Bogut, Penny Taylor, Andrew Gaze & Michelle Timms just to name a few.

Playing representative basketball requires attendance at 2 weekly practice sessions and a Friday night game. All Werribee Devils VJBL Representative Teams have coaches that are suitably qualified, holding a minimum level one coaching accreditation and a mandatory working with children check. All coaches work under the guidance of the Player & Coach Development Manager and the Representative Coaching Leads. Werribee Basketball aims to have a program that strongly aligns with the Basketball Victoria and Basketball Australia player development pathway, and provides opportunities for all players to play at the highest level they can achieve.

Werribee Basketball encourages all players looking to take their game to the next level to attend these tryouts.
