As we begin the season shortly, I would like to say a few words. We as the James Lick Girls’ Basketball program are representatives of the school and its pillars.  We also want to be a direct representation of the district, school, program, teammates, community, and more importantly, as individuals and your family. Our goal is to develop into strong, smart, and hard working Student-Athletes while we enjoy an outstanding season.  We are excited to get the season started, as we will take part of a great season with our student-athletes!


My name is Tommy Luu, the Head Girls’ Varsity Basketball Coach at James Lick High School. My coaching career has come across many levels. I was a Student Manager with the San Jose State Mens’ Basketball Program for 2 years. I spent those years learning from some of the best coaches in this area. I was in charge of film exchange, coordination of film, statistics, and skill development. That was by far one of the best experiences I’ve had in my career. Next, I spent 3 years as a Skill Development Trainer and Coach for Mike Allen Sports. We offered skill development training sessions to everyone from ages of 5 to 17. It was a great experience to be able to partake in. I was able to motivate and teach many Student-Athletes. I helped run our AAU program, Ballin’ Ambassadors and Lady Ambassadors, where I helped out and assisted all levels (12U, 14U, 15U, 17U) and head coached 11U Boys, 13U Boys, and 16U Girls. I was able to motivate athletes of all ages in the game of basketball and what it takes to be successful off the court as well. I spent one season as a Head Assistant Coach with the Boys’ Varsity Basketball Program at Gunderson High School. That was another great experience to be able to motivate and help lead the team to their 3rd straight CCS appearance. Lastly, I am proud to have the privilege to be given the opportunity to prepare for my 2nd season as the Head Girls’ Basketball Coach at James Lick High School.

Best Regards,

Tommy Luu

I would like to welcome everyone to this upcoming season that is fast approaching.  I am a firm believer that sports are an excellent gateway to not just a healthy life style, but also to build strong character in the future of our student athletes.  I am honored and thrilled to be part of this great coaching team that consist of the head coach of the Varsity team, Tommy Luu, and my self, head coach of the Junior Varsity team, Anna Rosa Chavez. With my experience going on to my 6th year of teaching, working with our student population combined with our knowledge of the game; we will together build strong individuals on and off the court.  One of our missions’ of this season will be to instill our four pillars of our school, which are agency, growth-mindset, communication, and collaboration, which will allow us to mold our student athletes.  Being a Comet Alum myself, I know the pride our students will take in representing our school.

As mentioned before, I am currently in my 6th year of teaching at James Lick High School.  I graduated from James Lick in 2006 and went on to study Spanish and minored in Mexican American Studies at San Jose State University.  I graduated from SJSU in 2011 and immediately starting working on my teaching credential at SJSU, and at same time teaching at James Lick.  I started coaching basketball for the 2014-2015 seasons as the JV coach.  I my self represented James Lick as a student athlete in the sports of Basketball and Softball.  With the season coming underway, I am excited and looking forward to a very promising season for our Student Athletes.
