Following the official end of the 2019/20 VJBL Season, the focus of Knox Basketball shifted immediately to the next VJBL season. Although we won’t be announcing all of our coaches for this coming season, most of the first and second coaches (as well as some third) have been locked in.

Knox Basketball Director of Basketball Operations David Ingham is thrilled with those we’ve locked in to coach our up and coming stars of the future.

“Heading into the 2019/20 VJBL season, we felt as though we had put together a terrific coaching group,” said Ingham.

“Unfortunately the 2019/20 VJBL campaign ended prematurely, but we’re excited to see many of our coaches back from last season, with the addition of some incredibly talented leaders.”

Under the guidance of Suzi Porter (Girls Coordinator) and Darryl McDonald (Boys Coordinator), the emphasis for all coaches this season is to prioritise helping our players improve.

“Our number one aim in the Junior Raiders program is to develop our athletes,” explained Ingham.
