Regional Squad Program

All of the associations and regions conduct training and player development squads for members of their associations/regions.

VCTA Regional Junior Squads.
There are 12 Regional Squads – 6 Northern Squads and 6 Southern Squads.
Squads consist of 32 children and 6 emergencies and conduct 6 Training Sessions which are held from April to August. Ages: 18&U, 16&U, 14&U, 12&U. Squads also compete against each other in Round Robin singles Squad Tournaments which are held at Bendigo.

The Squads in the Central Highlands Region are:

Buninyong Squad

Coordinator: Karen Croxford

Coach: Geoff Reese

Central Highlands Squad

Coordinator: Ian Burman

Coach: Brian Carr

Creswick Squad

Coordinator: Jenny Jolliffe

Coach: Anthony Gilchrist

The chosen participants in these squads are provided with an enhanced training and development regime designed to link in with the work being performed with their current private coach to further develop and improve their match play.

These squads are one level of the Junior Development Pathway which allows the children to move from their private coach right through to a member of the AIS.
