What is Junior Jets?


Junior Jets is the opportunity for your child to take their basketball to the next level and compete in Australia’s largest junior competition, The Melbourne United Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL). VJBL is played on a Friday night in a large range of venues across the state. Each week over 1000 junior teams compete to be the best in state. This equates to over 500 games across 150 courts. This is the breeding ground for Victorian State players and many successful players have come out of this system; Mathew Dellavedova, Andrew Bogut, Andrew Gaze, Penny Taylor and Michelle Timms just to name a few. Competing in such a prestigious competition instils in your child a sense of pride, raises self-esteem, and will develop new friendships that will last a life time.


Jets teams are selected via a tryout process. During the VJBL Season Sunbury Jets team play against a range of other associations such as Melbourne Tigers, Geelong Supercats, and Diamond Valley Eagles. Once selected Jets players are required to train twice a week (generally one session on a Sunday and the other mid-week). The representative Jets program is available for all SBA domestic players. Jets players DO NOT have to leave their domestic teams to play.


This is your chance to represent the Sunbury Basketball Association in one of the following divisions:


  • Victorian Junior State Championship (VC) (Top teams go to national champs)
  • Victorian Junior Basketball League (Div 1,2,3, & 4)
  • North West Regional Competition
