2021 TRAINING PLAN
IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED BY VJBL
There is no ‘Bye’ between the Crossovers of Phase 1 and Phase 2, so teams will need to be patient while waiting for the first Round of Phase 2 Fixtures.
Due to ‘Good Friday’ we will be playing on the 16th April (3rd weekend of school holidays) and we will be working with Country Associations heading to the Under 14 championships to organise a different date for their games.
The Grand Finals will be played for all competitions on Friday 17th September, the finals format will be released next year prior to the start of the championship season.
2021 VJBL CALENDAR
If you are accepting a position with Mornington Breakers and have played VJBL with another Association you will need to seek an indefinite Permission to Train from your former Association. This will need to be in the form of an email from your clearing Association and sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. In January 2021 when VJBL open Clearances you will need to apply through your former Association for a Clearance and pay the applicable fees.
