BVC Pathways

Bball_VicCountry_logoBasketball Victoria Country zoning now includes Pakenham

This opens the door to many pathways for players, especially JUNIORS, to elite basketball programs.
All details about BVC Development Pathways can be found here bvcc.net.au/bvc-pathways

Here you will find the “Country/Metro Border” document. It defines which postcodes are deemed country and therefore which children can officially participate. (Just because a player plays under the PDBA doesn’t mean they qualify for country status even though the association itself does)
