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

This is my son’s third season playing So Cal Elite, and he absolutely loves it. I love it too! My son has been involved in many leagues for various sports, and I can honestly say that So Cal Elite is one of the best organized groups out there. It’s so easy – clinics are right before games, so no extra practices, all staff and coaches have been super friendly and encouraging and best of all, the communication from So Cal Elite is great! Overall, just a really great group to be a part of.

Charlene D. – 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.
