GROW your GAME
Interest in the NE Bushrangers' Big V program has grown significantly over the past 5 years, to the extent where we have entered the MUVJBL. This gives players, aged 12-20yrs, a real taste of state level basketball, enabling them to enter elite basketball streams at a later time.
Experienced and well-credentialed State-level Coach Mentor and Director of Coaching (NE Bushrangers), Jacqui Henry heads up this program which provides a structured development process, closely linked to the Bushrangers' Senior teams, and the coaching protocols of Basketball Australia. This ensures our young squads are getting the vital training patterns that our elite NBL, WNBL also receive.
In 2019, we have foregone the usual D Squad setup to enable our younger players the opportunity to play through the VJBL, ensuring they get the necessary match practice at this level, prior to moving up into the senior teams.
LINKS TO SENIOR SQUADS
Opportunities to train with the senior Men's & Women's playing groups is available to U16/U18/U21 VJBL squad members. Ask your current Team Coach how you go about this or contact Coaching Director, Jacqui Henry on 0419 164 382.
