Junior Giants Tryouts

Coburg Giants VJBL representative program runs tryouts in early October, a month before VJBL Grading Phase.

Player/Team selection process runs for two to three weeks and is open to all our domestic players wanting to a further pathway for their basketball needs.

The tryout sessions are run by the CBA Coaching Coordinators and their appointed coaching staff.

Sessions are  broken down to age groups, to allow coaches to observe and  evaluate all players performances during set drills.

Sessions run for 1.5 hours across 4 courts at Coburg  Basketball Stadium.

After the last  tryout session,  players will be allocated to teams and notified of their selection via email.

If you are interested to become part of the Coburg Giants family please refer to the Giants Player Selection Process and fill in the expression of interest form.
