All players participating in domestic competitions are encouraged to attend weekly training sessions with their teammates and coach. We also welcome players on the waitlist or who intend to play in the upcoming season to join weekly training sessions.

PLAYER DEVELOPMENT

The WHBC operates in conjunction with the MRBA and other associations to provide player development pathways for girls and boys of all ages.

We strive to provide opportunities for the personal growth and development of youth athletes while also reinforcing positive influences, self-confidence, self-esteem, and the ability to excel on and off the court.

Aussie Hoops and Under 10’s

If your child doesn’t meet the age requirements for our youngest Under 12’s squad, there are several options to get them started!

The Aussie Hoops program uses a "game sense" approach where children learn basketball through playing lots of games and activities and is suitable for boys and girls up to 12 years of age and ALL abilities!

Representative Competition & Ageing Out

There are many opportunities for players to develop their skills and compete at higher levels while still holding a spot in their weekly WHBC team.

 

WHBC Coordinators liaise directly with various associations to help facilitate basketball pathways to the representative level which include:

  • Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL)

    • Under 12’s to Under 20’s teams are selected each year.

 

  • Junior Country Championships

    • Tournaments are conducted yearly for the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups.

 

  • Basketball Country Victoria Skill Days

    • Part of a development program for players of all abilities and standards from all associations located in regional Victoria.

 

  • Ageing Out

    • Once a player reaches their final season in the Woodend Hawks Under 19’s team there are options through the MRBA to transfer into their weekly Open Senior Domestic competition, as well as representative opportunities through VJBL (U20’s) and the Country Basketball League (CBL).

Simply contact the WHBC Coordinator to learn more about the pathway that’s best for you or your child.
