Coaches 2017/18



The DVBA are pleased to announce our Junior Eagles Coaching Lineup for 2017/18.


The line up of quality coaches and people for the 2017 / 2018 season is one of the best on record for our junior representative program.


National Championship winning head coach Rob Coulter, WNBL Assistant Coach Mark Alabakov, Vic Metro Assistant coach Jack Fleming, National Championship assistant coaches Simon Hickey & Jacqui O’Neil, former SEABL players Marcus Todd & Dean Plummer and Ex SEABL Head Coach Paul Hallet makes for an exciting time at our club as we continue to build on providing our players with the best possible coaching.


The development of some of our younger female players who have stepped into an Assistant Coaches role has been exciting and rewarding at the same time. With Anthony Allen, Tony Hopkins, Rob Coulter, Nathan Batchelor and Deb Keogh in our U12 program is very exciting for the club.
