2017/18 VJBL Teams

The Sunbury Basketball Association is pleased to announce the following players have been selected for each team for the 2017/18 VJBL season.



Teams are not final until the beginning of Grading phase two (2). This means that coaches can make changes to their teams to promote or demote due to injury, lack of performance or change to better balance teams. This again will be at the coaches’ discretion but will need to be approved by the Director of Coaching before any changes are made.


A parent from each team is required to manage the team for the VJBL season. You can approach the coach of your team to enquire about the role. For more information on the duties and responsibilities of team manager you can contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

teams u12s to u18s practice every Sunday for approximately 2 hours as per the master practice plan at Boardman Stadium. Each team will also have an additional mid-week training session that will be determined by the coach and players availability. Players are to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled practice time and be mentally prepared for rigorous and challenging practice sessions. They should be dressed in the Jets reversible practice singlet and suitable basketball shorts.



Players who do not train at either session or show up late or leave early no matter the excuse will not start the game on Friday. They cannot be subbed in until after the five (5) minute mark of the firstquarter. Coaches reserve the right to not play players at all who do not practice both sessions or consistently miss trainings no matter the excuse. For players who arrive late or leave trainings early on a consistent basis, the coach has the right to reduce their court time. It is up to each individual coach to police and enforce this with his or her players.



Players ARE NOT to leave early from our trainings to attend other sports. Doing so will result in the Director of Coaching evaluating your position at the club. Also as a consequence the player may not take the court the following Friday until the second half of the game. This will be at each coach’s discretion as to whether they choose to exercise this penalty. You are making a commitment to the club to play REPRESENTATIVE BASKETBALL in a STATE-WIDE COMPETITION and this comes with certain responsibilities to your Club & Team. Domestic hockey, football or netball etc. Comes second to Jets training.


All training sessions start on the 22nd of October and mid-week trainings start the week after. Coaches/Managers will need to contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

 2017 18 Court allocations for Sunday rep trainings


Court time will be assessed and rewarded based on attitude, behaviour, team needs, strategies and tactics employed by the coach and the Director of Coaching, defensive match ups and consistent performances in games and trainings, Due to the nature of Representative Basketball, players cannot be guaranteed equal court time. However, parents who are concerned with their child’s role on the team should arrange a suitable time to discuss the matter (politely) with their Team Manager to organise a meeting with coaching staff. This is to be done at an arranged time before or after training & NOT straight after the game. NOT DOING SO CAN RESULT IN SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.


All players or parents are required to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to accept their position in the team by Oct 19th. Coaches will be given contact information of each player in their team so they can follow up and introduce themselves.


Finally, our junior jets chair will be in touch with more information in regard to your child’s selection, so please check your emails regularly.
