Blackburn Vikings 2019 Big V Tryouts Announced


The Blackburn Vikings are pleased to announce Try Outs for the 2019 Big V Season.

Our Women’s Program will once again be lead by Peter Buckle. Buckle guided the Division 2 Women to the Big V Grand Final Series in 2018. The Women will once again work together as one program, seeing the transition for Youth League Players looking to make the step to the Senior Competition.

The State Championship Men will be lead by Paul Lankford. Lankford helped oversee the transition to State Championship Men in 2018 after two extremely successful years in Division 1.

Glenn Rees has been appointed the Victorian Youth Championship Men’s Coach for 2019. Rees took over the reigns over the VYCM in 2018 and will look forward to seeing some new faces in 2019.

Additionally the club will host Under 21 VJBL Try Outs in conjunction with our Youth teams.
