EDJBA Junior Domestic

Welcome to the Bulleen Boomers Junior Domestic program. The Bulleen Boomers are the 2nd largest
club within the EDJBA, and we pride ourselves on providing a strong competition for your children to
participate in.

COMPETITION (EDJBA) OVERVIEW

Please read all information herewith and then see Registration Link below or CLICK HERE

Our Junior Domestic teams compete in the Eastern District Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA)
competition which covers teams from a wide part of Eastern Melbourne (from Park
Orchards/Warrandyte in the east, Eltham in the north, Collingwood/Ivanhoe in the west,
Nunawading/Box Hill in the south). Games are played on Saturdays and start at 8:30 am, with the last
game at around 9:00pm.

 

In general terms, the younger the age group, the earlier in the day games
are held. The U18 and U20 age groups are expected to be available for games after 5.40pm and
including the 7:20pm to 9:00pm game times. The EDJBA organizes game fixtures to take into account
the team compatibilities (e.g. a coach may be coaching more than one team). The Winter Season
runs from April 2020 to mid-September 2020 (School Terms 2 2020 & Term 3 2020)

family member/dependent and complete the registration. Please note the following:

• The parent/guardian email address used will form the login for all future registrations for
that child. Choose a personal email that is likely to be used long term rather than a work
