What others say about SoCal Elite Sports

Kristen B.

SoCal Elite’s Advanced program is great – our son enjoys playing with a group of players and against other teams of similar level/experience. Much better than a typical rec league program and yet not the commitment/expense of a travel/club level team. Perfect for our 10 year old athlete.

We’ve had an excellent experience with SoCal Elite Sports—both in the regular league and on the travel team. What impressed our family about this league is the level of organization, commitment and training that our son receives. We have played in other basketball leagues locally and have found this one to be much more rigorous and with a higher degree of training. We are especially impressed with the caliber of coaches that they have recruited for the travel teams. Our kids are coached by coaches who coach at the competitive high school level, and bring a great deal of passion and educational skills to the game. We love this league!!!

SoCal Elite is providing a higher level basketball that previously could not be found in Irvine. The upsides: lower costs, high level professional coaching, tournament experience, great/fun practices, very competitive and an organization that cares about its athletes. This is my sons second full season with SoCal Elite and we have been very pleased with our experience.

Great basketball league. I have 2 kids currently playing: one in the club and the other in the recreational league. Both really enjoy it.
