VJBL - VC Teams For 2019

VC Divisions have been announced for the 2019 Season. Some bigger clubs with lower numbers than I expected, while seeing some smaller clubs be represented very well.
Anyone over/under achieving ?
I think Hawthorn do a great job, and over the years have seen more and more teams make VC.

Dandenong – 10
Hawthorn – 10
Kilsyth – 10
Knox – 10
Eltham – 9
Nunawading – 9
Bulleen – 8
Keilor – 8
Diamond Valley – 7
Frankston – 7
Melbourne – 7
Casey – 5
Geelong – 5
Sandringham – 5
Waverley – 5
Bendigo – 4
McKinnon – 4
Southern Peninsula – 4
Ballarat – 3
Bellarine – 3
Latrobe – 3
Pakenham – 3
Sunbury – 3
Altona – 2

Good to see Sandringham doing well with VC teams in girls u12,14 &16 and boys u12 & 14. Club management, board and head coaches have had to put up with a lot of negativity over the changes being made. Still a work in progress but a very nice start. Particular congratulations to the head coaches who are doing a great job.

Corio Bay still struggling to get VC teams, even Bellarine has three listed and Geelong five. Surprising!

Bellerine did really well to qualify in the u14 girls after losing 2 of their stronger players from last year to Geelong.

Great to see a good spread, with up and coming clubs being represented as well as old stalwarts like the SE clubs and Melbourne Tigers well represented. All looks v healthy for bball in Vic.

Not really surprising as rankings based on past ladders and Corio Bay always starting from lower ranking and trying to work up. Bellarine and Geelong just have to do enough to maintain ranking during grading. It is what is

Digging a bit deeper, clubs on the improve in recent years (all junior age groups)


Those not doing so well;


In the case of Pakenham a few years ago had 3 teams in Met4 and above, now 4xVC, 3xMet1, 1xMet3 and 2xMet4.

Warrendyte 7xVC, 1xMet2, 3xMet3, now 2xVC, 2xMet3, 2xMet4.

When this is compared with consistent performers like Eltham who have between 7 and 8 teams in VC. Melbourne are similar, between 7 and 9 teams in VC every season.

Solid programs delivery strong results and pathways to the senior competitions
