Future Boomers Rep Development Squad (FBRD)

FUTURE BOOMERS REP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM, 2024

TARGET: The Future Boomers Rep Development Squad is led by our Junior Domestic Development Officer, Kelvin Bowers and junior support coaches, aimed at boys and girls born in 2014/2015 who currently play domestic or primary school basketball at our club. KB and our Junior Rep coaches are always on the lookout for future Boomers representative players and watch games each week on Saturday. Players will be sent personal invitations to join the program.

PURPOSE: Attract and select teams of boys and girls whom we can develop and open the pathway as prime candidates for U/12 VJBL selection next season.

PROGRAM DESIGN: The program involves players attending training sessions throughout the term, leading into tournament participation each term.

Tournaments planned: Eltham Dandenong Junior Basketball Tournament (late January 2024), South Eastern Junior Basketball Tournament (March Labour Day weekend, 2024), Whittlesea Junior Classic tournament (mid April 2024),

Bulleen Boomers’ King’s Birthday Tournament (King’s Birthday Long Weekend in June, 2024) & Southern Peninsula Tournament (Winter School Holidays, 2024).

The club is investing in the future of our pathway to help players improve and aspire to be Boomer Junior Representative players next season and beyond. We will provide an inclusive and advanced coaching tuition across the program and tournaments.
