Camberwell District Basketball Association announced today that Mark Jeffers will lead Camberwell Dragons in the Big V Championship Men’s competition next season.

Jeffers returns to the position of head coach of our senior team after a one-year absence and said today he was excited about the challenge ahead.

“I love the Dragons and the Camberwell basketball community and look forward to putting an exciting and high-energy team on the floor for Big V Championship play in 2024,” he said.

“We’ll play an aggressive and up-tempo brand of basketball that will entertain and strengthen our connection with players, coaches and families in the Dragons program.

“I’m excited about what’s ahead next season and to starting our Open Runs next week.”

Jeffers was player coach of the Dragons senior team in 2018 and led the team for five years before stepping down at the end of 2022.

CDBA chief executive Ross Wignell said Jeffers' return to the team was great news for the Dragons.

“His experience and passion for the game aligns perfectly with the association’s vision for the future,” Wignell said. “I’m looking forward to Mark injecting an enjoyable game style for the team, which will encourage our families to get behind and support.”

Jeffers will continue to work in his current roles at the Dragons, which include head coach of the Under 18.1 Boys team and Under 18 Boys program and VJBL Boys and Girls Co Ordinator.

• Senior Men Open Runs begin next week, with sessions scheduled for Thursday, October 19 (8pm-9.30pm at Camberwell Grammar School), Tuesday, October 24 (8pm-9.30pm, Boroondara Sports Complex) and Thursday, October 26 (8pm-9.30pm, Camberwell Grammar).
