After a long search for Head Coaches for our Country Basketball League(CBL) teams. We are pleased to announce the signings of Bruce Hultgren to our Men’s team and Sarah Monck to our Women’s team.
Both coaches are no strangers to the Supercats Program with Bruce the former Director of Coaching and prominent SEABL and VJBL Coach. Achieving finals success at varying levels of the program. Sarah rejoins the coaching ranks having coached at SEABL and Junior Championship level for Ballarat before moving to take up the Operations Manager role at Basketball Geelong.
Both are distinguished coaches and will help to guide our young CBL programs to the next level.
Basketball Geelong appreciates the excitement being generated around the upcoming CBL season by our junior and senior representatives. Should you as a representative of Geelong Supercats be interested in playing CBL, it is an expectation that you would try out for the Geelong teams prior to committing to any other teams. Should you not be selected in the Geelong team, we encourage you to tryout elsewhere.
As you know, Basketball Geelong provides the elite pathway in the region for Basketballers. Due to negotiation breakdowns with regional associations, we are about to announce tightened junior eligibility requirements within senior representative teams. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office to discuss.
The CBL will form an important component of the Supercats SEABL Development Academy Program by exposing young players and players with potential to play SEABL to playing senior levels of Basketball. All players must register if they wish to be a part of the SEABL Development Academy and CBL programs.
The hunt is now on for players to join our CBL program.
