Big V Season 2015 can’t come soon enough for the Venom young guns that have been selected to
represent Warrandyte as members of the Youth League 1 Women (YL1W) and Youth League 2 Men (YL2M)
With Head Coach Beau Bentley at the helm for his second season with the Youth Men's team, he and his
newly appointed coaching staff of Phil Noone and Bill Nicolaidis have put together what they believe will
be a squad that can push for a finals birth in 2015.
After a finals finish last season that left the YL1W just short of another shot at the title, Warrandyte Venom
has farewelled 2014 coach Damian Clarke. Recently the Club welcomed Angela Heigh to the position of
Head Coach who will be assisted by Kellie Taylor. Angela, having coached VJBL sides for Warrandyte Venom
over the last few years, is very aware of the talent of many of the Venom juniors. She is now witnessing
first hand, through tryouts and training, that there is a lot to like about these young developing players.
Although the main goal at Youth League level is to develop our athletes in readiness to move to senior
basketball, our coaches will place a big emphasis on developing fundamentals in doing the little things to
enable them for the future. These teams will also be hungry to win.
It is an exciting time for the club with so many talented junior players progressing through the ranks and
this is backed up by the huge turnout at tryouts! This shows strength within the club and for those not
selected this time we have no doubt we will see many faces back pushing for selection in the coming years.
May we congratulate the following players on their selection and we look forward to witnessing an exciting
