The Bellarine Storm’s elite program will be bigger in 2019 as we have been accepted into the 2019 Big V season with both the Women’s and Men’s teams being allocated into Division One.
“This is a major step forward in continuing to grow our elite pathway” said Aaron Lothian, BPBA Operations Manager. Big V is the next step from our CBL program that has been established this year. “We have been very pleased with our first CBL campaign and when we were presented the opportunity to take the next step to Big V, we jumped at it”. Lothian said.
The Big V is a semi-professional basketball league in Victoria. The league comprises 12 competitions, with its two main ones being the men’s (SCM) and women’s (SCW) State Championship divisions. Below the SCM and SCW is: Division One Men (D1M), Division One Women (D1W), Division Two Men (D2M), and Division Two Women (D1W). The remaining six competitions are youth divisions, with those being: Victorian Youth Championship Men (VYCM), Victorian Youth Championship Women (VYCW), Youth League One Men (YL1M), Youth League One Women (YL1W), Youth League Two Men (YL2M), and Youth League Two Women (YL2W).
This could not have happened without the support from Basketball Geelong, Dean Anglin and his team have been instrumental in the success of our application.
We will be advertising for coaches in the coming weeks and players will have the opportunity to register their interest on the form below. Senior try out will be held in early December with dates to be confirmed.
