The Kilsyth Junior Cobras consist of the top basketball players from Kilsyth Basketball’s Junior Domestic Basketball Competition. Our Junior Cobras compete in the Victorian Junior Basketball League (VJBL) a state-wide Friday night competition.
The Junior Cobras program currently has 34 Boys and Girls teams spanning from Under-12’s to Under-20’s with games played within the Metropolitan region and expanding into country areas such as Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Gippsland and the Mornington Peninsula.
The Junior Cobras program is one of Victoria’s most successful, as evident by the success of our Homegrown SEABL teams. Led by Kilsyth’s Manager of Basketball Operations and former NBL and Under-17 Australian Men’s Head Coach, Mark Watkins, the Junior Cobras pathway into elite Senior basketball is the envy of rival associations.
