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

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

My two boys played SoCal Elite basketball and really enjoyed it. I’ve been involved in other youth sports organizations but admittedly I don’t know much about basketball. They took the time to train me and educate me so I could help our team. It was always a great experience. Now that my boys are older, one of them is actually a referee for them. It’s a great organization.

Mike F. – 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.
