Won't happen, no money, no juniors, no club foundation, Fiddes put money in 10 years back and once the Vic Giants folded there was no more, now the club has evaporated.

re: Darebin Return to Big V

They have one u20 boys and a u20 girls team in pool 2 and 1 U16b team in regional 1, hardly a basis to return to Big V. The place is a joke and was killed by terrible administrators and a lack of vision.
They will NEVER recover from the damage done by the comittee and two people in particular who hav obviously left some time ago. Even the club stalwart, Sabba has left and is no longer involved at any club.
They should have merged with Coburg yrs ago when they had the chance.

Does anyone at Darebin actually have something to add, maybe to confirm or deny the rumor?

They where never a real stable club in terms of financial means, and where running on the effort that Sabba (mark sabbadini) had put it too make them even noticeable. Although they did go through a purple patch it terms of talent. Likes of Maalo Hicks (now with Corio Bay) playing all his juniors there, Brett Meredith playing all his juniors there (Went on to play AFL football at Sydney though), Sammy Gazzo playing a couple of years of Big V there (Now with DV champ men I believe) and also Matt Reynolds played most of his juniors there too I've heard? (Now playing champ men at DV also).

Be good if they did return! There are plenty of players to draw on from that area

No issue, just saying that they do well with out having a number of junior teams under them. Therefore Darebin's success should not be predicted based on junior programs

Melbourne Uni came into the league under different rules than what exist now. If a club like Melbourne Uni applied now they would be knocked back straight away.

re: Darebin Return to Big V

Correct me if I am wrong but, the 'rules' relate to the status of being an association current with basketball Victoria requirements. That's why we lost Monash Uni

There is no set quota listed for junior teams to obtain entry. For the most part Melton have only had 2-4 teams during their time in the big v.

Yeah MU run a comp out of the facility on campus. Not sure how good the standard is or how many teams or anything. Darebin have a few comp that they run relatively well

Techinically speaking Darebin are still part of the Big V. Once they get in they are able to take 'non-playing membership' for I think up to 5 years.

re: Darebin Return to Big V

Darebin can return next season without going thru the "new team" process after that they need to apply again.
XXX. If you think there are planty of good players then why isnt Coburg in a better situation ?
It takes more than having 10 or 12 good players to make a Big V club and Darebin dont have what it takes anymore. The domestic comp is terrible they have NO juniors and the YMCA controls the stadium and has a very restricive deal with the Assoc.
Stop pissing in the wind as all your going to get is wet and smelly.

Coburg are so poorly managed they will never improve their position!

As someone who knows a little about Darebin I'm going to say it would be possible, not easy but definitely possible.

Plus no body said it was for next season...

re: Darebin Return to Big V

I was involved in the latest push to enter a big V team in the competition for Darebin. We had some good players that were going to form the basis for the team and then complete the roster with try-outs. There were plans for days the team could help out the juniors and fund raising stuff. A sponsorship prospectus was completed and we were about to approach potential sponsors when the committee shot the whole thing down. Apparently they said that it was a lot of work (too much in other words) and all a little bit too hard.

So it all fell apart.

We also had coaches and some volunteers lined up. But the committee (which sounds like a bit of a shambles and not all that interested in taking the club in the right direction) didn't want to support it.

Another example of politics in Basketball. Where does the committee want the graduating VJBL players to go?

To "TheFansMan" keep your head up. Try again soon dont let it destroy your club.

My club the committee knocked it back twice before we went in, no they say it is the best thing ever...

"Tom"- Darebin dont have graduating junior players.

For that club to to any better than what it is now they need to get at least 3 U12 boys and girls teams going with a 50/50 mix of top and bottom age. Only then will they have a basis to move forward. You could also make a couple of bottom age 14's with out needing to get kids from other VJBL clubs. All it takes is people willing to work at it but they dont exist at Darebin.
