About Us

President's welcome

The Yarra Eagles Basketball Club (YEBC) formerly known as Marcellin Eagles Basketball Club, is a family and community orientated basketball club located at Marcellin College, a leading Catholic Secondary Boys' College situated in Bulleen.


The Club was first established in the 1950’s and has grown significantly over the years. We now average over 200 registered players per season (approximately 30 teams), with both Girls and Boys teams from under 8's to under 20's.


Our mission is to develop player skills so that teams are competitive and successful whilst providing a fun and friendly environment.

We look to develop our members through multiple pathways of playing, coaching and refereeing junior basketball.

We participate in the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA), which is the largest junior basketball competition in Australia. Games are played on Saturdays at various times and locations throughout the Eastern Districts. Mid-week training sessions are held to develop the fundamental skills of all players.


As a Club we are committed to ensuring a safe environment for our young members and support the Victorian Child Safe Standards. We also adhere to the EDJBA’s behavioural Code of Conduct, which applies to players, parents, coaches and officials.


YEBC is one of the EDJBA’s smaller clubs, which gives it a  true “family feel”. The Club is run by an enthusiastic group of volunteers who are committed to providing a fantastic environment for all players to have fun and achieve their best. 


The future and success of the YEBC depends on the involvement and contribution of as many people as possible. If you are interested in becoming involved with Eagles, in terms of playing, coaching, refereeing or as Committee Member, please contact the relevant Committee Member below.
