Geelong Big V Divy 1 Men

Hearing they will not be entered with the new BV league starting up.

Anyone know any more?

The new tiers/pathway for senior basketball in Victoria,presuming what we know is correct ,would leave Geelong with no option.
Pathway would be Big V Youth League straight to Premier League. To be fair other options in the region to play senior Basketball including Werribee, Corio Bay, Melton etc

@Big V Fan, maybe lower your vision just a little there mate.

Much closer or more convenient options for those players who want to remain in the Greater Geelong area would also include the Bellarine, Surf Coast and Colac Associations.

We will all find out soon enough, however Werribee and Melton as you have indicated already have senior Big V programs, so a team full of players will have to look elsewhere...

Corio Bay the same, can't field a third team as they already have YL and Senior Men/women.

I could be wrong, it has happened, lol, but here are the possibilities for those men and women who are Big V level but rules will not allow to continue to play at Geelong with Supercats in the current format:

1. Colac - has a decent, new stadium and with the support of local officials and sponsors could muster up enough cash to enter Big V with players from Geelong, also they are in the CBL again this summer so if they want to explore the options they could. (About 50 minutes from Geelong)

2. Bellarine, similar to Colac, however their stadium is old and tired, may need to consider an upgrade or playing games elsewhere under their Bellarine Storm banner. (About 30 minutes from Geelong)

3. Surf Coast is the unlikely candidate because they are still a young Association, still growing and I am uncertain they have a venue suitable, but it would not take much for them to be a contender as they are growing fast. (About 20 minutes from Geelong)

4. Corio Bay, unlike the other three and as I have stated already have the two team (four including women) structure for Big V and therefore can't expand further. Should enter CBL and continue to grow using these platforms, however the current rules for Big V if held limit the number of teams for them and everyone else. (10 minutes from the new stadium Geelong use @AWA and 15 minutes from the Arena).

Surely it won't be called Premier League.

They will send a couple back to Youth League, sit Varley/s on bench of new league team and re-lease others. Yes Bear Corio Bay seems the logical and if they can stay in SCM an option for those left hanging

Maybe they could catch the queenscliff fairy to Sorrento and play for Mornington

I believe Colac are applying for Big V this year? Can anyone confirm or deny this?

BigV d1 doesn't need another spread out team in the league. Unless it forces the league to make it two conferences instead of ridiculous double header demands the league already has.

Agree way too many teams in D1.

I think they will be going into D2.

Things have changed quickly and the Big V will surely accommodate those teams eligible as they apply to enter.

Colac has a very suitable three court stadium with ample crowd space and can easily enter Big V D1 if they get some players spilled out from the Corio Bay + Geelong merger and an import or two, it's up to them if they want to fund it I guess.

So can Bellarine and Surf Coast Associations if they want to spend on imports. Whether they enter D1 or D2 will be up to them and how their lists look after this merger because the next SCM and SCW teams will probably come from the United Geelong Association.

How are Geelong United going to have a SCW team? I'm not sure combining 2 average YL teams will make up a SCW team? And you going to have another 2 imports on top of all the other players they buy in for their NBL1 team.

Are Surf Coast looking Big V? Aren't they quite new?

Colac makes perfect sense and with an import would be a solid D1M team

No brainer to have Colac come enter the league

Be great to gain another country association

Why would Colac just get to enter into D1? They'd have to go through the same path larger clubs are (D2) first..

Corie Bay entered straight in to SCM
Bellarine entered straight into D1M and D1W

I hear Lemke from Bellarine is going to be playing for his hometown Colac next Big V season.

Those examples of teams entering straight into SCM and D1M and W are a result of unique circumstances.. Colac wanting to enter because they want to enter does't result in a D1 birth, when giant clubs like Southern Penn/Pakenham/Craigieburn/Mildura are still in D2.
Your examples are the exception, not the rule.
