Has it happened before that 4 brothers all represent Australia in Basketball at the same Maccabiah games?

Well Maccabi Victoria Basketball Club & Carlo and Roz De Bortoli can proudly boast such an achievement.

In 2015 twins and current u18 Jnr players Noah & Bailey represented Australia in the JCC games in USA. This trip wet the twins appetite for international competition and so they decided to try out for the Youth Boys Maccabiah Basketball team.

Mackie who competed in the Boys Maccabiah team in 2013, together with Hudson both of whom play in the Maccabi Youth League squad were nominated to play in the  Open Mens Basketball team in Israel in 2017.

Loyal to Maccabi  - all four boys selected (theres also Cody who is only 12 ) have been playing at Maccabi Basketball Club from a young age and both Mackie & Hudson were part of the inaugural YL squad in 2015.

Carlo & Roz’ commitment to the boy's basketball amongst a hectic schedule is outstanding. Always volunteering as Team managers, Committee members, Sponsors and whatever else Maccabi Basketball Club require. Their commitment to the boy's basketball isn’t just an off court assistance as they converted the backyard to house a half basketball court that is used by many maccabi players & even training sessions.

All four boys are talented basketballers with a commitment to their basketball and team values. They will no doubt make Maccabi Victoria Basketball Club proud to have them in the green and gold.
