High Performance

Our organization is dedicated to nurturing and developing talented young athletes, providing them with the tools and resources they need to excel both on and off the court.

At Southern Peninsula Basketball Association, we offer a High Performance Program led by SPBA Head of Basketball, Matt Brasser, along with a team of experienced coaches. Through this program, we deliver specialized coaching to our athletes, helping them expand their knowledge, enhance their skills, and reach their full potential.

Our Head Coaches, Matt Brasser and Eliza West, collaborate closely with Basketball Victoria’s High Performance Coaches to create a dynamic and supportive coaching environment. Our primary goal is to equip athletes with the skill set required to succeed at collegiate, state and national levels, setting them up for future achievements.

Participants in our High Performance Program receive a range of benefits, including weekly specialized coaching, regular athlete reviews, video analyses, and pathway development planning. We take great pride in our history of producing state and national representatives, as well as helping players secure college scholarships. Our program is designed to empower athletes to thrive in these elite pathways.

It’s important to note that the High Performance Program operates separately from our VJBL Program and incurs its own associated costs and fees. Athletes selected for the program are carefully chosen through various channels, such as observing games, attending training sessions, reviewing game footage, and consulting with VJBL Head Coaches. The selection process occurs on a term-by-term basis, ensuring a competitive environment where athletes must consistently prove their commitment and capabilities.

While aspiring to be part of a VJBL team is commendable, it’s essential to understand that selection into a VJBL team does not guarantee inclusion in the High Performance Program.
