Camberwell District Basketball Association (CDBA)

Welcome to Camberwell Dragons, one of Melbourne’s fastest-growing basketball associations in the eastern suburbs.

Over the past 26 years the Dragons have grown from a small family club into a Basketball Association with nearly 60 teams competing in the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL) and offering a direct path to senior elite-level play within the Big V State Competition in which we field four squads. 

We are also affiliated with four junior domestic clubs competing in the EDJBA – Balwyn Blazers, Ivanhoe Knights, Koonung Comets and Whitehorse Mustangs.  We have since added the Community Basketball League to the family – CBL is a junior domestic competition comprising of 12 clubs with a combined 500 teams.  

These domestic clubs are vital to the Dragons’ campaign of developing players from beginner to representative level. In addition we provide an open-age senior domestic program offering opportunities to all levels and ages. The Camberwell Dragons have more than 4500 affiliated members in the domestic program alone.

The Association has never lost the “Family First” culture that has been the backbone of our existence from its inception. The Camberwell Dragons are a Representative basketball program operated by the Camberwell District Basketball Association.
The Dragons provide an opportunity for all athletes and officials to develop their potential and compete at the highest levels. Our basketball program enables players to practise and improve their skill level with our coaches as well as to contribute to a strong sense of team and sporting community. Our dedication to providing and fostering pathways is not just for our players. It is also for coaches, referees and technical officials.

The Dragons program prides itself on family and community values ensuring that we stand fast on “Building not Buying Success” and this is recognised by the contributions of all volunteers involved in our past, and those involved in the progressive growth the Camberwell Dragons future.

Camberwell Dragons are held in high esteem and we strive to achieve excellence in on court and off the court in a safe, positive, disciplined and controlled environment. This allows us to provide each individual athlete the best possible avenue for development.

The only way to experience building a great program is to get involved.

Join Dragons today and never look back!
