REPRESENTATIVE PLAYER PATHWAY
The Mornington Breakers Representative Program competes in the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL) and the Division 2 Big V Competition.
The Representative Player Pathway is focused on getting our players from the VJBL Breakers through to Big V Breakers as well as providing opportunties for some athletes to represent us in the State Program.
The VJBL Breakers Program are teams selected to play in the Victorian Junior Basketball League. Try Outs are hosted in September/October each year and the season runs from November to September.
Breakers Elite Clinic
The Breakers Elite Clinic is run by Avi Meyerson in consultation with Mornington Basketball. Since moving to Australia, Meyerson has quickly distinguished himself as one of the premier player development specialists in the region. His camps, clinics and academies are known for the intensity and attention to detail that will take your game to the next level. The Elite Clinic will give all U12 to U18 Breakers players the chance to be in an elite training environment forcusing on player development. The Breakers Elite Clinic will also give Mornington Basketball's Director of Coaching and Basketball Development Manager the opportunties to identify players for the High Performance Program or Futures program.
Mornington Basketball High Performance Program provides additional training to a select number of identified talented U14 & U16 Breakers players that display the greatest potential within the Breakers program or have the ability to achieve selection into Basketball Victoria Development Programs. The program offers professional focussed coaching in an athlete first environment.
The Mornington Basketball Futures Program acts as a bridging program between our Junior Breakers and our Youth League Men/Women and aims to prepare players for senior basketball. The Futures Program is the next progression from the Mornington Basketball High Performance Program. Players will learn the senior system of play connected to BV and BA, learn to compete at a higher intensity and be prepared both mentally and physically for senior basketball in future years. Players will be training in groups with other identified athletes and will also have the opportunity to compete with current Youth League players. The end goal of the Futures program for athletes is to be offered a training position, development position or playing on a Youth League squad in future years.
Through the Futures Program players may be invited to attend Big V Youth League training sessions or even be selected as a Development player which could lead to them suiting up for the team on game day.
Our Youth League teams play in Division 2 of Big V. Players aged 23 and under can be selected for this team and compete in the season from March to August.
The Senior Big V are the pinical of the Breakers Player Pathway. Players selected into this team will compete in Division 2 of Big V.
