Interest in the NE Bushrangers' Big V program has grown significantly over the past 4 years, to the extent that we are now considering entering teams in the Big V Youth League in 2019, and the VJBL in 2018.
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 coaching protocols of Basketball Australia. This ensures our D Squads are getting the vital training patterns that our elite NBL, WNBL also receive.
In 2017, we had a Devt Squad of 25 Men, along with a growing number of Women. Squads train across 2 nights, alternating between Wodonga & Wangaratta. Our full coaching staff, along with senior players - Kannon Burrage, Sam McDonald, Liam Wright & past player, Rachel Jeffery, all support the program where possible.
For 2018, we will again offer training sessions in Wangaratta & Wodonga on a weekly basis, with options of Yarrawonga & Benalla rotating fortnightly being considered (depending on court space). Jacqui Henry will head-up the D Squads, along with support from Emma Henry (Men's HC), Sam McDonald (AC Men), Richard Townsend-Gant (Import Men), Darcy Locke (AC Men) and guest visits from the senior playing group.
