What Others Say About The Academy

SoCal Elite offers an academy in several convenient locations. My son has participated in that for several seasons and I saw his skills improve with SoCal Elite’s coaching. Now that he is 9, he’s been playing in their club team for over a year. Each stage of development, SoCal has been there all the way. I couldn’t recommend it more if you and your kid both love the sport of basketball. You won’t regret it.

Rob S. – Parent

SoCal Elite’s Academy/Clinics are amazing – Coach Matt and Brandon are the best by far and continue to shine with their drills and discipline. Our son (7 years old) as a rookie couldn’t even dribble the ball, but in only 4 months, he can now dribble as well as the rest of kids. His overall happiness alone is what keeps us coming back.

Daniel L. – Parent

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.

Twinkies T. – Parent

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 son’s second full season with SoCal Elite and we have been very pleased with our experience.

About The Academy

SoCal Elite Basketball

SoCal Elite’s Weekly Basketball Training Academy has been running for over 10 strong years. The Weekly Basketball Academy is a year-round clinic with four different skill levels: rookie, beginner, 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 Academy is for boys & girls Kindergarten thru HS.

Note: Our coaching staff will evaluate and place your son or daughter in the correct level after his or her first workout. The levels are not age-based but skill-based. When attending the first workout, if you are unsure, pick the lower level. If that level is too easy, he or she can always stay for the next level’s session.
