Who are we?

Jack and Luke; 15 year old twin basketballers and best mates. We both love basketball and have been playing since we were 8 years old with our local basketball club Sydney Comets in Alexandria. We are passionate about basketball and are working towards making a career out of it once we finish high school.

What have we achieved so far?

Winner of 2013 Junior State Championships Under 12’s Men’s Undefeated Premiers for 2015/2016 Trinity Grammar 8A’s Team Champions for Coastal Classic NSW 2016 Under 16’s Mens – Sydney Comets Undefeated Premiers 2016/2017 Trinity Grammar 1st V Basketball CAS Jack has been selected to represent NSW U16’s Men’s State Team and Luke is a reserve on the same team.

How have we achieved this?

In total, we spend about 20 +hours a week, either training, or on the court. We fit in our school homework mostly on the weekends in between games. We are keeping on top of our grades, and we know that a good education is very important. If we find we have any down time we love watching NBA games on TV. We travel to other competitions like Melbourne Junior Classic, Coastal Classic every year to improve our skills.

What are we working towards right now?

This year, the 2017 NSW State U16’s Team will be competing in Western Australia in the July school holidays, for the "2017 Helloworld Australian Under 16’s Junior Championships". We have been doing extra training sessions in preparation for this competition. How can you help us achieve our goals? At the end of the school year, our school Trinity Grammar is organising a USA Tour in December to expose us to the basketball scene in America. During this trip, we will have the oppportunity to play against high schools and watch a college game, talk to the players and experience what it is like to live and play basketball in the USA. In order for us to cover the costs of travel and accommodation for these competitions and skill building experiences, our school Trinity Grammar has created a competition for every $30 donated you receive an opportunity to go into the draw to have your company logo on our Tour Bag Back Pack, Jacket and Tour Blog. For every $50 donation you receive 2 opportunities in the draw. Winner announced on Friday 22nd September. We would be very grateful if you can donate a few dollars to help us. We will keep you posted on how we go in WA in July and USA in December! Thank you in advance for your kind donations. Jack & Luke Nichol
