Basketball Victoria is pleased to announce the 2021 State Team Program Coaches and Staff for next year’s Australian Junior Championships.
Frankston Blues are proud to be represented by our Junior Girls Coordinator Kerryn Mitchell in the role of Assistant Coach to the Under 20 Women and our NBL1 Men’s Team Manager Paul Groat in the role of Team Manager to the Under 16 Victorian Metro Men
BV’s Basketball Operations General Manager Grant Wallace said the strength of the candidates in Victoria continues to make State Team Coaching Staff nominations extremely difficult to choose from.
“We were thoroughly impressed with the calibre of coaches who nominated for our 2021 State Team Program and appreciate those who applied for positions,” Wallace said. “The group of coaches and staff we have selected will guide Victoria’s best junior players into the 2021 Australian Junior Championships and gain valuable coaching experience at these events.
Basketball Victoria sends 15 state teams to Australian Junior Championships each year, with participants from both Metropolitan and Country areas featuring in teams including our Ivor Burge (athletes with an intellectual disability), Kevin Coombs Cup (wheelchair basketball), Under-16, Under-18 and Under-20 teams.
