The Diamond Valley Eagles Junior Championship program is the representative arm of the Diamond Valley Basketball Association. Currently, our Association is represented by 41 teams, providing an opportunity for approximately a little over 400 local junior athletes to compete in the Melbourne United Victorian Junior Basketball League (MUVJBL). This is a state based competition that is played on Friday nights across Victoria.
Each Friday night Diamond Valley Eagles teams compete against teams from across all around the state. The DVBA’s Junior Championship program provides the opportunity for young players with intent, to further develop their basketball skills and provides a very important platform in the basketball pathway.
Selection trials for DV teams are conducted in October, with the competition beginning in November and finals completing in September the following year.
Through this integral part of the Association, the DVBA has produced players and coaches who have represented the Boomers & Opals; NBL teams; Junior Australian teams; both Victoria Metro & Victoria Country; players who have attained scholarships to the Centre of Excellence (Former AIS) and to the USA College system.

The 2021-22 VJBL season is scheduled to begin Friday 19th November with Phase 1 of Grading.
