Two new sports coaches with experience at an international level have joined Knox Grammar School for the start of Term 3.
Anthony Stuart, a former Australian and NSW Cricketer, and Jacob Jackomas, former Assistant Coach of the Sydney Kings Basketball Team, will both commence at Knox in late July.
Jacob, who will coach the 1st Basketball Team, has been coaching in China for the past six years and has experience coaching junior development representative and state teams.
“The facilities and the school are world class, so I’m really looking forward to helping develop the students and the culture of Knox Basketball,” said Jacob. “The program has a fantastic upside with the kids having a great passion for basketball, which is exciting.”
Former coach of the NSW Cricket Team, Anthony Stuart, has joined Knox as coach of the 1st Cricket Team. He recently joined the Knox Cricket Tour of the United Kingdom.
“I’m excited by the opportunity to assist in developing all the players throughout the Knox Cricket Programs,” said Anthony.
“I am fortunate to have been involved in cricket at all levels and in numerous countries over the past 35 years. The game has provided me with a lifetime of opportunity, experience and amazing memories and I look forward to imparting that onto the players at Knox in the hope that they further develop into positive and successful cricketers, with a real passion for the game.”
