This was a wonderful and exciting weekend for many of the Team Esface teams. As we have surpassed our mid-point, all of our teams have now experienced successes big and small. It is a true joy to see the teams and individuals growing as a result of their commitment. Here are a few of the highlights from this past weekend:
Team Esface Varsity:
Played with tremendous effort and enthusiasm. Its evident when watching this team that they truly love and enjoy the game. They battled a heavyweight squad from Sacramento with a couple of towers in the finals but came up short for a solid and extremely respectable 2nd place finish.
Team Esface Girls:
With contributions from the sorely missed Aryanna Goodarzi and the lights-out shooting from Mckenna Izzy, the girls were able to cap off the weekend with a strong finishing win.
Team Esface 8th combo:
The 8th grade red and black teams combined forces to storm Sacramento and take no prisoners. Playing together for the first time and challenging a 8th and 9th grade bracket, the boys scraped out a win in their first game. As they became comfortable with each other, the combo team became a force and dominated the rest of the field cruising to a 1st place finish!
Team Esface 7th Red:
A hard fought game brought the 7th Red their first victory of the season!! Congrats boys, the program is proud of all your hard work!
Team Esface 5th Red 2:
Took home 2nd place in the No Mercy Tournament! This team continues to make huge strides and was rewarded with a great weekend. Team Esface HQ is very excited about the 5th grade class and the what the future has in-store for them…..
Last but not least…. Team Esface Men’s Elite:

and also DEFENSIVE HIGHLIGHTS of the champions:
Team Esface Athletics Movement (”TEAM ESFACE”) is an athletic-based youth training and development organization aimed at providing the best athletics coaching to boys and girls in order to achieve positive returns on and off the training arena. Founded in 2005 as a natural offshoot of Esface, Inc, TEAM ESFACE started as an individual training program and has since developed into sponsoring and hosting camps, clinics and high school/NJB/AAU teams along the peninsula of the SF Bay Area.
This Spring Team Esface proudly announces their first AAU team, a 6th grade group under the leadership and direction of Dele Sobomehin (Esface Founder/CEO). These diverse set of boys come from as far as San Francisco but mainly hail from the peninsula cities like Foster City, San Carlos, and Palo Alto areas. Taking home their first Championship in their first tournament in April, they have already became a formidable opponent to the many elite programs in the area. Last weekend, they won their second Gold at the Team Hoop tournament that included competitive teams from the same area and as far as Santa Cruz. Below is a highlight from their first tournament and a picture of the most recent championship.
