Weekly Basketball Training

Mondays thru Fridays | 3 locations

SoCal Elite’s Weekly Basketball Academy has been running for over 9 years strong. The Weekly Basketball Academy is a year-round clinic with 3 different skill levels: beginners, intermediate and advanced. Our coaching staff breaks down the game for each level and works on the players’ skills and understanding from both an individual and team perspective.

Each level is progressively more challenging but also more fun. Our highly experienced and expert coaching staff will help motivate and improve your son or daughter’s game in a competitive and fun environment.

The Weekly Academy is a great place to enhance your game and works well for those players who are transitioning from the rookie to youth SoCal Elite Leagues, as well as those players who have game but want to take it to the next level. This program is for boys and girls 1st Grade thru HS.

What others say about The Academy

My son has attended the clinic for at least 2 years. From having no experience to thinking he is the best at his school. It is funny to me but I am proud that he is proud and is confident! Yes, the head coach can be tough but he knows when to pull back. The other coaches are more relaxed.

The boys like the practices and say Coach Patrick is the best. Twins told me the other day to sign them up for all the leagues at SoCal-Elite. Would highly recommend!!
