THE VJBL recently announced its 2019 Association Award winners, highlighting the associations that have excelled on and off the court.
The association awards were recently announced with Korumburra, Melbourne Girls, Blackburn and Casey winning our Association Awards.
These awards acknowledge the associations that conduct themselves positively and showcase exceptional spirit towards the rest of the teams in their pools and beyond. It also highlighted the amazing work done off the court by administrators to help these associations shine.
Conduct by the associations towards the league – through making grading payments on time, season payments on time, minimising reports and attending delegate meetings – are some of the bonus criteria that a team can accrue off the court.
Increasing team numbers and qualifying sides for the National Junior Classic also push an association’s case for winning an award.
Victorian Country association Korumburra Basketball Association was named the Small Association of the Year.
Melbourne Tigers Girls earned the Medium Association of the Year nod.
Rounding out the awards was a perennial powerhouse on and off the court throughout Victorian junior basketball as Casey Basketball notched the Large Association of the Year Award.
Blackburn Basketball Association rounded out the awards with the Girls Got Game Association of the Year accolade while the VJBL Management Support Award was earned by Alesha Good for her exceptional work out of the Mornington Basketball Association.
