Frankston Blues (FDBA) are proud to announce the following award winners, for the recently cancelled 2020/21 VJBL season.
Although it’s unfortunate the season was cancelled, and limited games were able to be played, the club still wanted to acknowledge the efforts of individuals in all teams, with coach-selected Coaches Awards.
FDBA Basketball Development Manager Jarryd Moss, spoke about the awards.
“This has been another challenging year for our Junior Blues players, coaches and families and we’d like to thank them all for their hard work and resilience”
“Each year our coaches are asked to nominate one player from their team, they may choose to nominate their best performing player on court or a player that has shown outstanding commitment and character – it is completely up to them, hence it is the Coaches Award”
“Congratulations to these players and to our Rising Star Award recipients”
Additionally, the club’s Rising Star Awards were selected as four individuals of both genders and ages groups of Under 12 & 14s and Under 16 & 18s.
Selected by the Junior Blues Coaching Coordinators, the Rising Star Award is presented to the players who have had an outstanding season and the club feels are likely to be successful at a high level for years to come.
This year’s Rising Star Awards go to Denver Warry (Under 12 & 14 Boys), Sitaya Fagan (Under 12 & 14 Girls), Jesse Lans (Under 16 & 18 Boys) and Bonnie Deas (Under 16 & 18 Girls).
The players selected this year have executed elite-level skills well above what is normal in their age group and are identified as athletes we believe have the potential to be NBL1 players in the future.
The above-mentioned awards will be ready for collection after our return to indoor sport.
The club will also celebrate graduating Junior Blues, those that played 8 seasons from Under 12 to Under 18, following the easing of restrictions.
