While the current VJBL season approaches the business end, preparations are already underway for a big year in 2016-17.
Anyone who is interested in getting involved in coaching, or becoming a coach’s assistant, for a Waverley Falcons representative team in 2016-17 is invited to contact Coaching Director Elias Palioyiannis.
The Waverley Falcons are an innovative and exciting representative program which offers young players from Under 12 to Under 20 the opportunity to train and play in an elite environment.
Games are played around Melbourne (and occasionally rural Victoria) on Friday Nights. Teams train on Sunday mornings with some teams also training midweek.
This season the Falcons qualified five teams for the Victorian Championship, the highest level of junior basketball in the state, while many other teams have enjoyed great challenges on development throughout the many levels of the VJBL.
Try-outs will commence in early October ahead of the beginning of grading phase one.
Elias can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 9807 9814 (select option for representative enquiries).
Many would not know that Mack Horton’s early sporting endeavours included playing basketball with Piranhas. Mack played with the Club between 2004 and 2006. Some of Mack’s contemporaries were James Boal, Daniel Klein, Angus Howie, Lachlan Nixon, Cameron Richardson, Alex Sloane, Harry Cormack, Matthew Jackson and 300+ gamer for Piranhas, Peter Paxinos. In 2004, I became heavily involved in the Club and can recall coaching Chad Horton in Under 8 with Cheryl Horton as Team Manager. Chad went on to play many years with Piranhas but after a couple of years, Mack decided to focus on his swimming and what a great decision that turned out to be! Congratulations Mack on your first Olympic Gold Medal and we wish you every success for the remainder of this Olympiad and hopefully many more. To Andrew and Cheryl, the encouragement and support that you have always given not just to your own children but others as well to participate in and enjoy sport will always be remembered by Piranhas.
