In 2024, we will be trialling a new format for our u16 and u18 WEST program.  Historically, the program has been ran on a Tuesday and Thursday morning, however, beginning term 1, we will now be training on a Monday and Friday night.

This move was made with the focus to provide more accessibility for more of our athletes, removing the hurdle that many families faced with getting to a morning training session before school and work.

Additionally, shooting has been a large deficit within our Wyndham VJBL program, and in a first step to work towards assisting the athletes further with this, the Friday night WEST session will be purely shooting.  We believe this will have both short term and long term benefits for all athletes involved.  It is a predominant routine for athletes at higher levels to get shooting sessions/routines in before they play, and we are sure that this habit will assist the athletes significantly, not only on the night but also in accumulating the volume of work required to become a good shooter in the long term.

Days: Monday nights & Friday nights

Venues: Werribee Primary School (Monday) & Thomas Carr College (Friday)

Times: 6:30pm-7:30pm (Monday) & 5:30pm-6:30pm OR 6:30pm-7:30pm (Friday)
