SoCal Elite’s Club Basketball Program is for those players who have progressed beyond the SoCal Elite Recreational Leagues or other City Leagues. Club Basketball is the best place to compete against the best youth basketball players and teams in the area. The SoCal ‘Elite’ will travel and play the top youth level teams in the area as well as some teams from outside the area.
Please understand that this is a high level of commitment and tournament weekends will take up most of the weekend. This is however, the program for those players who want to be challenged and want to play High School basketball or beyond. SoCal Elite’s teams are formed through tryouts and feature non-parent professional coaches. There will be a full team tryout in September and additional tryouts, depending on how many players we need to add per season.
Each team consists of 10 players and there are two teams per grade level. The club basketball year is broken up into three seasons: Spring/Summer (April – July), Fall (September – December) and Winter (January – March). We expect that if you choose to play, you are fully committed to that season and expected to travel outside of the city to play in weekend tournaments and/or leagues. Most tournaments will be in Orange County, CA but this past year featured tournaments in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego & Las Vegas.
We do not expect a year-long commitment, but we do expect a season commitment. For example, if you want to play club basketball and baseball, then you could play the first two seasons and opt out of the third season to go play baseball. All players and parents must sign a commitment contract before being selected on a team. We expect players and families to have a commitment to the team for the duration of the season.
Note: Once teams are formed, you will have to wait for someone to leave to take someone’s spot. There are no refunds and once you are on a team, you are on the team for that entire season.
