Harmon arrives as new BDO
Werribee Basketball is delighted to reveal our new Basketball Development Officer (BDO) is NBL1 star Emilee Harmon.
Emilee comes to Werribee from the Wodonga Basketball Association where she was playing NBL1 for the Albury Wodonga Bandits and working as BDO for the association.
Prior to her office role at Wodonga, Emilee has always worked hard off the court throughout her successful playing career in Australia, coordinating Aussie Hoops programs, running school basketball clinics and working extensively with domestic teams.
On the court she has been a star in NBL1 and SEABL, playing for Albury Wodonga Bandits, Nunawading and Launceston. Prior to her professional career Emilee was a star college player with Ohio State University.
Emilee is excited to get into her work here at Werribee.
“I love the game, so to have the opportunity to work in basketball and help grow the game is a real privileged for me,” Emilee said.
“To come to a growing association like Werribee is really exciting. The grassroots programs here are well established and I can’t wait to drive further growth,” she added.
“I hope to continue to advance the quality of our programs, ensuring we are always developing our junior athletes.”
Werribee Basketball’s Player and Coach Development Manager Reece Potter said Emilee brought a wealth of experience to the table and would prove to be a great asset to our program.
“Emilee is a distinguished basketballer, but it was her experience working at junior levels that we think makes her the perfect fit for this role,” Potter explained.
“She’s an enthusiastic coach and I’ve got no doubt she will drive our grassroots programs to become even bigger and better,” he added.
“Emilee will provide a strong female role model around the association, which we hope will inspire both young girls and boys to take up our great game.”
Emilee replaces Jarrod Moore in the BDO role, who took up a role with Basketball NSW.
