The team at Mildura Basketball would like to give a shout out to the crew that assisted with the delivery of the U14 JCC earlier this month, it was a massive undertaking and couldn’t have been done without you, so thank you!

We extend our thanks to Mildura Rural City Council for the support of our event, and a huge thank you to Mildura Sporting Precinct and Chaffey Secondary College that, along with the Hothouse gave us the capacity to bring this event to Mildura.

From Basketball Victoria’s General Manager – Leagues and Competitions, Greg Jeffers:

What a wonderful few days we have had in Mildura for Basketball Victoria’s Junior Country Championships for U14 Boys and Girls! It was the first time we’ve been able to bring this event to Mildura.

88 teams from across Victoria attended. It meant that we had well over 5,000 attendees, including players, coaches, their families, our staff and technical officials visiting the Mildura Rural City Council region utilizing the beautiful new Mildura Sporting Precinct, the famous ‘Hothouse’ and Chaffey Secondary for training and games. Planned with school holidays, it was great to hear of many families staying on to enjoy a few days holiday in the region.

Thank you to the fabulous volunteers from Mildura Basketball Association, who went above and beyond. The team from the Sporting Precinct were exceptional and a thank you to the Council for supporting our endeavour to bring this event to Mildura.

On tournament eve it was exciting to see the main strip of restaurants with a wide range of colours and uniforms, let alone over the three competition days.

From Phillip Island to Wodonga, Swan Hill to Portland - they came from wide and far in the interests of kids playing for the Victoria Country Championships Divisions 1 through to 6.

Congratulations to our crew for pulling it together - Sarah Szczykulski and Jordan Royal, and well done to Matt Royal for the vision in getting this event to Mildura with Mahaela Jackson.
