Bobcats ALL-STARS program
Bobcats ALL-STARS Program – taking expressions of interest for Winter 2021
Over the past few years, our Bobcats ALL-STARS program has been a huge success, providing players with greatly improved skill development, and an opportunity to play against VJBL teams.
The ALL-STARS program caters for those with intermediate to advanced skills, and forms part of our pathway to VJBL. The program will consist of 60 minutes of ALL-STARS training each week (Sunday mornings), playing 3×3 at our HQ in the Basketball X 3×3 competition and two tournaments (to be confirmed) to be played against the VJBL teams. Our coaches have a huge amount of experience and have been selected by our Head of Basketball Jonathan Goodman.
Bobcats ALL-STARS is like a junior rep program without all the Friday night traveling and games, with tryouts to be held for team selection. You get to compete against the other association and junior rep teams in two tournaments during the ALL-STARS season, and also get high intensity training and coaching. This training is based upon individual skill development, and team concepts along with some inter-team games. Tryouts will be held Sunday 15th November at Bobcats HQ. All details will emailed to you on the Friday beforehand. The Bobcats Coaching team will be in attendance, conducting the tryouts and assessing players. We will email letters of invitation the following week.
What happens next:
- Accept your invitation
- Register your child. If you played last year, you may choose to just pay the registration component if your uniform still fits. If you haven’t played before, or need a new uniform, you will be required to select both components.
- Attend selected team trainings. These take place on Sunday mornings at Bobcats HQ. Your time slot will be included in the letter of invitation.
- Learn new team concepts and individual skill development.
- Play games in tournaments.
Bobcats ALL-STARS will be having teams in the U/12 and U/14 age group for both boys and girls (numbers dependent). Our program is open to ALL Bobcats members (that are not playing VJBL representative basketball), from any association with an intermediate to advanced skill level as well as those from outside the Bobcats club. The program is perfect for those looking to prepare themselves for Representative basketball next season or for those who are at a Rep level but don’t want to necessarily play Rep basketball. The commitment by each player and parent is until the end of March 2021.
This program will include a Registration Fee $350 (which includes court hire, Coaches, Tournaments, administration and entry fees into the Basketball X 3×3 program.
Training commences the week after tryouts.
