Dragons Den #17
THE DRAGONS DEN #17
Get excited everyone, the break is over! Training started back on Sunday for our VJBL teams giving them the chance to blow some holiday cobwebs away and burn off some of those choccie bunnies. Two of our teams played in the Whittlesea tournament last weekend, with both being grand finalists. Friday night games are back this week so good luck everyone! In Big V news, we had a triple header at BHS last Sunday with 2 teams getting the W. GO DRAGONS!

The U12/1-2 boys won all five of their pool games and went on to win their GF 51-32, congratulations to Conor and the young Dragons superstars!
BIG V – ROUND 4 recap
It was great to see so may supporters at BHS last Sunday for our triple header. The YL1M kicked off the day with a thrilling 70-67 win against Coburg. Then the D1W got the W against Latrobe 85-56 and remain undefeated after four rounds. The D2M fell just short in a tightly contested game against Coburg, going down 80-83. There are no home games this weekend for Big V, but the weekend after sees ALL of our Big V teams having home games for Round 6.
BIG V BLUE CARPET
Mark Jeffers from our Big V D2M wound the clock back last Sunday with his triple double earning him a spot on the Big V blue carpet:
Mark Jeffers (Camberwell D2M) – 14pts, 10rbs, 10ast, 4 treys
UNIFORM RULES UPDATE
VJBL have updated their uniform policy and full length skins are now approved for players to wear for games. Remember that any compression garments must be the SAME colour for the whole team, so if one of your team mates is wearing white skins and another is wearing black then your team is breaching the uniform rules. The updated uniform policy is up on the website and can also be found HERE
