Junior Representative Basketball
Blackburn Vikings currently have 31 representative teams in the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL). The VJBL is the highest level of junior competition in the state of Victoria.
In order to try out for state and beyond, players must play for a VJBL team. Representative try outs information can be found here. Teams generally train once or twice a week and have access to high levels of coaching. Players from a number of domestic clubs come to play representative basketball for Blackburn Vikings.
Junior representative basketball opens a career path for players with the ability to play at the highest junior level. It also allows them the opportunity to participate in Tours to the USA which has become a regular feature of the program and the opportunity to progress through to the Senior ranks in the state wide Big V competition.
