The Academy

SoCal Elite’s Rookie Basketball Training Academy is a year-round program that is primarily for those little hoopers that are just beginning and need to train on a smaller basket and only with kids their age. It is designed for kids up to 2nd grade. Rookie Training is a great way to introduce these youngsters to the game of basketball.

Our staff will break the game down to a beginner’s level and focus on ball handling, footwork, passing and above all else, having fun! It is the perfect compliment for those players who are playing in any of our SoCal Elite Rookie Leagues. This program is for boys and girls Kindergarten thru 2nd Grade.

  • Basic Rookie Basketball Fundamentals

    SoCal-Elite’s Rookie Basketball Academy primarily focuses on the most basic fundamentals of basketball. This program is designed for rookie players that are just beginning to learn and play the game of basketball. Sessions are based on many one-step ‘building blocks’ and move through drills slowly to understand fundamental concepts.

  • Lower Hoop Height

    Low hoop heights (8 ft.) are utilized for this young group.

  • Professional Coaches

    All of our coaches are former basketball players who have either coached or played at a high school, college and/or professional level. For the rookie training, our coaches are specially trained to effectively work with kids 2nd grade and younger.

  • Basketballs Available

    The correct-sized basketballs are available on location for your child’s use for the duration of the session.

  • Year-Round Program

    Our Rookie Basketball Academy is year-round, except for major US holidays.
