2017 Junior Jets Team Announcements

2017 Junior Jets Team Announcements

 

Congratulations to the following players who have been selected to represent the Jets in the upcoming VJBL season. It was a gruelling process over 2 weeks and 3 try out sessions per age group. The standard of players trying out has improved dramatically this year and we are excited about the season ahead. 2016 was a very successful year with the Jets winning 3 Championships and our girls program being ranked 18th overall in the state. 2017 promises to be just as successful. We have made considerable cultural changes to our Jets programs and altered our try out process to ensure the highest integrity possible.

Please check the list below to see if you have been successful in being selected. If you were unsuccessful in making a team we thank you for your efforts and wish you well in your basketball endeavours.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

It is important that ALL PARENTS AND PLAYERS understand that selection in these teams does not guarantee that you can’t be dropped or promoted to other divisions in your age group. As per the VJBL rules, players can be moved between teams right up until the beginning of Grading Phase 2 in early February 2017. Players may also be cut from the team and replaced prior to Grading Phase 2. Any movement between teams or players being cut will be done by the selection panel (Director of Coaching, Junior Development Officer, Basketball Operations Manager) in conjunction with the Head Coach and will be approved by the Junior Jets committee. Reasons for players to be moved and or cut include, but are not limited to the following: Performance, Attitude, Commitment, Attendance, Parent Conflict, Injury and Team Balance.

All players will be sent an email from our Director of Coaching outlining the standards and expectations required to play Jets.

We will be taking this very seriously this year and will not be tolerating poor commitment and attitude in our program from players or parents.

Congratulations on earning a spot, but now you must strive to keep it.

Your coaches will be in touch with you in the coming weeks with the plan to start training after the holidays.

2017 Jets VJBL Coaches Announced

2017 Jets VJBL Coaching Appointments

The Sunbury Jets Basketball Association is pleased to announce the coaches for the 2017 VJBL Junior Jets representative season.

After a rigorous process the Junior Jets committee has appointed a strong field of coaches across all age groups. We are extremely happy with the retention rate from last year and the program is going from strength to strength. We have appointed coaches with WNBL and State team experience as well as Big V and Basketball Victoria High Performance coaches.

After a review that took place in 2016, the SBA will again be implementing the same policy in regards to selection of players and coaches. The SBA is not allocating coaches to specific teams until after the trials. This is to ensure we uphold the highest possible amount of integrity and transparency in our player selection process. Additionally all try-outs are closed to non-coaching parents to prevent any influence or manipulation of coaches or players during the trials.

The player selection panel will be made up of the coaches in that age group and the following panel members:

Kennedy Kereama – SBA Director of Coaching

Chris Tighe – SBA Junior Development Officer

Andrew Summerville – SBA Basketball Operations Manager

Once teams have been selected the coaches will be assigned to the team that their qualifications, experience and ability is best suited to in that specific age group. Parent coaches only willing to coach their children will be assigned to the team their child is selected for.

After experimenting last year with our first team coaches being the age group coordinator, we will be implementing this again. It is expected that the age group coordinator will assist in networking and resource sharing with all coaches in their age group. They will monitor the players in all teams in their age group and offer support and suggestions to help all improve. It is expected that all teams in the age group will adopt similar philosophies, strategies and tactics in line with the “Jets Style of Play” and coach’s handbook produced by Kennedy Kereama, Chris Tighe and Andrew Summerville.

It is mandatory for all coaches and assistant coaches who have not completed a National Coaches Accreditation to do so before commencing coaching this season.

Assistant Coaches will be appointed after team selection and after consultation with selected Head Coaches. All Head Coaches have the final say regarding Assistant Coaches to ensure a cohesive working relationship is achieved.
