We guarantee a minimum of four games for all teams except in the case of late withdrawals or cancelled games beyond the control of organisers. We will try where possible to provide teams with five games.

We spend quite some time analysing VJBL results to do our best to provide good grading. The large number of entries assists in helping this process. We ask Associations to provide information which is helpful for grading.The organisers reserve the right to re-grade if the information supplied is misleading.

A GRADE - Strictly limited to just 20 teams
Is for teams which expect or aspire to be in VC (Victorian teams) or equivalent interstate or international standard. This tournament regularly attracts most of the top ranked teams in Victoria.

This is for teams who are aiming at Victorian Championship, but are maybe on the fringe. Likewise for mid to lower ranked Division 1 teams from interstate/overseas. Like A Grade it will be played on a one hour schedule and will feature teams from Eltham and Dandenong sections. Where possible teams will be grouped to assist with travel

In general terms, is aimed towards teams aiming for VJL grades of competition within the VJBL. There will multiple ‘grades of competition’ within B Grade.

Generally aimed towards Regional division teams within the VJBL competition. There will multiple ‘grades of competition’ within C Grade.

We warmly welcome domestic teams and we have a special grade or grades for them in most age groups. Where teams believe they are strong enough, they may enter into the higher grades. We exempt them from the team entry fee.
