Tigers graduates off to the AIS & College

Dane Pineau, Felix Von Hofe and Jock Perry have been selected to attend this prestigious program. Dane and Felix are also embarking on their College careers, Dane has been selected to attend Saint Mary's in Moranga California and for Felix, Western Washington in Bellingham.

They will attend the AIS until they head over to the USA when the college year starts.

Jack Purchase was also selected to attend the AIS but decided to decline to concerntrate on his important upcoming Year 12 studies. Jack has also been selected to attend the U19 Australian team camp, which is a fantastic achievement.

By far our tallest player, U18.1's Jock Perry is also off to the AIS. Jock, who stands at approx. 6'10" will have a bright future in the sport, so to have the opportunity to attend the AIS at his age is invaluable.

Just a question - how many of those boys started playing at tigers in u12s? or were they poached from other clubs?

Felix has played for Tigers since he first started playing basketball in under 12s... Don't hate because you can't achieve yourself.

But according to Chris Anstey the NBL team and the Tigers' juniors aren't linked. ;-)

This link further proves why MT struggle for support.

No wonder there is the "we play you Friday night all year, why would we follow your senior men's team when we have one competing at SEABL or Big V level" mentality.

If that isn't the case, I look forward to stories on the Tigers' website of Kilsyth, Dandenong, Knox, Werribee and Frankston kids heading to College, too.
