Announcement: Mid-Week Junior Domestic Competition to begin Summer 2018/19


It is with great anticipation that we are proud to announce that the Blackburn Vikings Basketball Association will embark on running mid-week junior domestic competitions beginning Summer 2018-19.

The announcement caps off a massive 12 months for the Vikings. Most notably by the merger of the Nunawading Vikings and the Blackburn Vikings.

The competition will focus on our younger age groups, Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12 in both boys and girls competitions. The club has no short term plans to venture into the older age groups for the time being, and will maintain a strong presence in the EDJBA throughout and MEBA in the Under 14 age groups and above.

The competition is possible due to a number of factors including the Association status of the merged club, a rapid increase in our member base, improved stadium deals and increasing demand for weekday competitions.

Junior Girls competitions will take place on a Wednesday afternoon whilst Junior Boys competitions will take place on a Thursday afternoon.

There are a number of benefits to starting this competition. It provides an opportunity for more of our players to play games in our home base of Slater Reserve. We also anticipate it improving our coaches, referees and ultimately players by having a competition easily accessible to our coaching and refereeing supervisors and mentors.

Other clubs and schools will be welcome to enter the competition. Registrations will open on Thursday, August 1. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the office.
