Spring League

SoCal Elite’s Youth Basketball Spring League is an off-season league for all boys or girls, ages 5-14. The 2018 Spring League runs from March thru May with 7-8 games. This league is for everyone: beginners, advanced and anyone in-between. SoCal Elite’s off-season leagues are for those players that wish to play past the primary basketball season (winter) and stay active.


What Others Say About The League

Words cannot explain how amazing SoCal Elite has been for our son. Compared to other leagues, SoCal Elite is the most organized.

Daniel L. – Parent

We started with SoCal Elite in the rec leagues and moved up to club basketball thereafter. All together, we’ve been with SoCal Elite for about 5 years. In the leagues and academy, SoCal Elite provided my son with the environment to work on his individual skills and fundamentals. Overall, I recommend SoCal Elite if your child is serious about basketball.

Baraa K. – Parent

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

Jason F. – Parent

SoCal Elite has it all. Whether you’re looking for a rec league, a camp, weekly training or a club team, SoCal Elite has it covered. My son has been playing in SoCal Elite since kinder and started with the parent-coached rec league. That was was a great time coaching his teams for several years and seeing his growth as a player. So if you’re looking for a great way to bond with your kid, SoCal Elite has it.

Rob S. – Parent

The structure of the league is fantastic. Our second grade son is having a terrific time. As a parent, it seems that the teams are more even this year (with the “better players” or those playing year round taken out.) Thanks for the change. It has helped my son re-consider basketball as a sport.
