WPBA adds Jason Weidemann

In another exciting addition to our administration team Western Port Basketball is excited to add Jason Weidemann.

Jason is an experienced sports management professional and basketball enthusiast, accompanied with education as NCAS Level II Basketball Coach and a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Coaching and Administration. His extensive background in community level basketball clubs and associations, includes roles spanning 27yrs in coaching, administration, and management positions, across a variety of settings including the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA), Ringwood Basketball Association, Nunawading Basketball Association, Casey Basketball Association, Basketball Hawthorn, Frankston & District Basketball Association, Chelsea & District Basketball Association and Dandenong Basketball Association.

In recent times, Jason has occupied Operations Management roles at Basketball Hawthorn and Frankston & District Basketball Association, where he spearheaded the junior competition restructure into one of the largest and most successful grassroots leagues in Victoria. On the coaching front, commencing at 13 years of age, Jason’s extensive background covers junior domestic leagues, junior representative (VJBL) and senior representative (BIG V / SEABL) competitions.

WPBA General Manager had this to say on Jason’s appointment “We are very honoured and thrilled to have Jason join the team at WPBA, I have known Jason for quite a few years and have the greatest respect for all he has done in particular on the Mornington Peninsula. Now to have him on our staff and passing on his experience and knowledge is showing exactly where WPBA want to head and are headed and the future is bright for this association, welcome Jason!

It’s anticipated that Jason will begin from September 19th, with a focus on assisting our current domestic program including growth and structure of clubs.
