ABOUT WHITEHORSE MUSTANGS
WHITEHORSE AMATEUR BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION – WHITEHORSE MUSTANGS is a junior basketball club based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Our club is one of sixteen who form part of the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA) competition where domestic competition games are played on Saturday. The EDJBA is the largest junior domestic competition in Australia. We also have some teams participating in the MEBA and GEBC competitions run by Melbourne East Basketball Association.
Whitehorse Mustangs fields both boys and girl’s teams in age groups ranging from Under 8 to Under 23. Our club and competition allows for the involvement of families through playing, coaching, team management and volunteer roles. The club caters for those just starting out as beginners right through to those who want to play, coach and manage teams in domestic basketball at the top level.
We are a family oriented club run by volunteers who are passionate about providing a range of opportunities for all participants. From playing, coaching and committee involvement through to running skills programs and events, we encourage our members and families to experience our philosophy of enjoy…encourage…evolve through team work, leadership, commitment, confidence, sportsmanship, respect and importantly, developing friendships for life.
The Whitehorse Mustangs field teams in a number of competitions:
EDJBA (Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association) - Saturday
This is where most of our teams play. This is a home and away competition against teams from the eastern suburbs. It is the largest junior domestic competition in Australia. As a result, grading ensures our players compete against other teams of a similar skill level. The Mustangs field teams in all age groups.
GEBC (Greater Eastern Basketball Conference) - Saturday
Played on Saturday in the East Burwood, Ringwood and Oakleigh areas. Registration in this competition is subject to numbers interested in that age group
MEBA (Melbourne East Basketball Association) - Weeknights
Played on a weeknight in the East Burwood, Nunawading and Wantirna areas, the Mustangs field a few teams in different age groups. This competition is perfect for those who have commitments on Saturday or just want a second game. These teams generally do not train and registration in this competition is also subject to numbers interested in that age group.
