BMBA Lion Cubs Junior Developement Program


For the second year, the BMBA have decided to undertake a Junior Player Development Program in line with developing as many young players as possible to take up the opportunity of playing in a Lions representative team in the VJBL competition next year.

In this regard a (4) week program has been developed to be run by squad coaches Jeff and Billy Feben to work on specific skill and technique development prior to VJBL try outs, which are scheduled in mid October (Please visit the BMBA WEBSITE or our Facebook page for specific try-out details) .This program will go up another level from the recent Domestic Player Improvement Program days that was recently completed in order to prepare children for drills and activities that they may be expected to do at a squad tryout.

The program details are as follows:

  • Age Group:               Children born from 2002 - 2005
  • Duration:                  4 weeks X 1.5 hour sessions
  • Day:                          Sunday Mornings
  • Time:                       10.00am – 11.30 am (commencing 24th August 2014)
  • Location:                  Lions Den
  • Cost:                         $40.00 per player attending


To participate in this program, you will need to complete the information form (Attached Below) and hand this form to Samantha Clayton at the admin desk by Saturday the 23rd August 2014– full payment will be required on the first day.

Any questions please contact Grant McMillan on 0411-380-093.

We hope as many children as possible will take up this program and enjoy the benefits associated with this focus on higher calibre technique coaching.
