High Performance

Southern Peninsula Basketball Association provides High Performance opportunities for our up and coming athletes across the Mornington Peninsula. Specialised coaching is provided to athletes within our High Performance Program led by our Director of Coaching & High Performance, along with our contingent of coaches involved in the Basketball Victoria pathway. This provides athletes opportunities to expand their knowledge base, improve their skills as well as meeting and exceeding their potential on and off the court.

Our High Performance Program Head Coaches , Matt Brasser and Eliza West, work in conjunction with Basketball Victoria’s High Performance Coaches to provide athletes with the best possible coaching environment.

The aim of our High Performance Program is to build athletes with the skillset to successfully perform at a state and national level.

Athletes are provided with:

  • Weekly specialised coaching
  • Athlete reviews
  • Video reviews
  • Pathway development planning

We have a proud history of state and national representatives along with players obtaining college scholarships. This program is aimed at setting athletes up to be successful within these pathways.

The High Performance Program is an additional invitational program, with its own associated costs and fees, within our VJBL Program. Participants are hand selected by Matt Brasser and Eliza West through a number of channels including:

  • Watching games
  • Attending training sessions
  • Watching game film
  • Speaking with the VJBL Head Coaches

The High Performance Program runs alongside the school term and is a term by term selection procedure. Athletes that are selected for one term, are not guaranteed a spot in the program for the next one, making it a very competitive program to be selected for.

The criteria for selection include (but are not limited to):

  • Aspiration to play at a higher level
  • Commitment to the sport
  • Coachability
  • Advanced skill set for your age group


Please Note:
Selection into a VJBL team also does not guarantee selection for the High Performance Program.
