Dandenong Basketball is excited to announce that Darren Perry and Mason Rogers will be back on board in 2022, leading our NBL1 Ranger Men and Women respectively.
Both did an outstanding job last season during another (and hopefully last) COVID-interrupted season and we can’t wait to see what they have in store in the upcoming return to NBL1 basketball.
We’ll no doubt continue to see the passion and excitement that Darren Perry brings to the sidelines every week in 2022. DP’s run as the head coach of our Senior Men is quickly becoming a legendary one filled with great games, great players and finals runs, something he and the team will have their eyes on next season.
“We had a young group last season that showed significant improvement in a short period of time. We expect to be young again but now with some more experience at the NBL1 level,” said Darren.
“Our job is to work hard and play with great enthusiasm knowing we’re back on the court and headed towards a full season of NBL1 basketball in 2022.”
Mason Rogers is similarly excited to get some continuity back with our Senior Women’s program next year. Taking over from Lloyd Klaman due to personal reasons mid-way through 2021, Mason did an outstanding job guiding our Women through COVID-interruptions, college callups and injuries. Now with a full preseason ahead to prepare his team, Mason is ready and pumped up to lead our Women in what should be a big year of NBL1 South action.
“It’s going to be really exciting to lead the Ranger Women next season and I’m thrilled that DBA have given me this opportunity,” said Mason.
“We’re looking at a number of exciting players to bring on board in 2022 that will make us really competitive in the NBL1 South league. Getting the chance to lead such a famous Women’s program is a great honour and I can’t wait to get preseason started ahead of a huge year of basketball.”
The 2022 NBL1 South season will start this April with membership packages to be released soon. Stay tuned to dandenongbasketball.com.au for more information about our NBL1 Program as the season draws closer.
