Dragons Den #19



 

THE DRAGONS DEN #19

Heading into Round 5, please make sure we continue to show great support of our players and coaches. To quote from a VJBL newsletter – basketball is a team game and a good team does not have an internal competition to see who scores the most. Quite rightly players want to do well as individuals but sometimes players have to sacrifice what they like doing for the sake of the team and parents have a critical role in encouraging “team” before “self.” In Big V news, three of our 4 teams got a W last weekend.Good luck to everyone for this Friday/weekend. GO DRAGONS!

BIG V NEWS
Round 6 recap – Our YL1W went down to the undefeated powerhouse Sunbury whilst our YL1M  had mixed results, losing a tight one to Corio Bay on Saturday before bouncing back to get the W against Hume City on Sunday. Our D2M won a terrific battle against North East but Whittlesea were just too strong for our D1W.
