Redbacks – Junior Domestic Competition

Warrandyte Redbacks participate in the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA) competition.

The EDJBA is an inter-association junior Saturday basketball competition with 17 member club participants. Boys and girls age groups range from Under 8s to Under 20s, with numerous divisions in each age group. Two seasons are played each year: the Winter season operates during Terms 2 & 3 of the school year, and the Summer season operates during Terms 4 & 1 of the next calendar year.
