Dandenong Basketball is excited to announce that NBL1 star Emilee Harmon has joined us as the new Basketball Development Coordinator for our association.
After excelling in a similar role with Wyndham Basketball and Wodonga Basketball Emilee has now become the newest member of the DBA family, bringing her passion for player development to our association and all of our development programs.
Giving back to the game that gave her so much has been a core focus for Emilee in her off-the-court life, stating that she can’t wait to jump into a new program with new faces to teach and help grow.
“Dandenong Basketball has an amazing history of developing players from grassroots to the elite level and I’m thrilled to be a part of that in this new role,” said Emilee.
“I love helping young basketballers find their feet on the court and will be working hard to further enhance the quality of our programs, so that the next generation of DBA players is even better than the last.”
After completing her college career with Ohio State in 2013 Emilee headed to Australia and has now competed in several seasons of NBL1/SEABL competition, including stints with Nunawading, Launceston and Albury/Wodonga.
She has also been a star off-the-court during that time, managing school holiday camps, development clinics and domestic introductory programs for multiple associations. DBA will utilize Emilee’s talents and knowledge base in a similar way to strengthen our development pathways and grow our existing basketball talent base.
DBA President Dale Wood stated that he’s thrilled to have Emilee on board in this development role, with her experience and enthusiasm a perfect fit as we looked to boost our development programs.
“I think Emilee will be a terrific asset for DBA going forward, she has the know-how and passion for player development that will take our grassroots programs to the next level,” said Wood.
“Having an elite female role model for our junior players is obviously so important historically here at Dandenong. With Emilee on board our domestic and Junior Rangers players will have exactly that and I know she is the right person to welcome young players into our association.”
While we will have some exciting news regarding Emilee’s NBL1 career in the next few days we encourage the entire DBA family to welcome her to our association in this new role.
Make sure you say g’day when you see our Ohio State Buckeye walking around, she can’t wait to meet you all in the corridors of Dandenong Stadium!
