This is a great program for the beginning player. See Team Esface’s Rookie League highlights from last season.

On a beautiful August day, Team Esface players, parents, and coaches came out to EPA Academy in Menlo Park to celebrate Team Esface’s tremendous 2012 season. Highlight videos, sports, good company, and good times were shared by all. And in the spirit of the hot new ‘Stay Hungry’ t-shirts, the burgers, hot dogs, chips, dips, and salads were all cheerfully mauled by the Esface family. Here’s a few photo memories from the day. Thanks for making it out!
Coach Remi Sobo, Coach Dele, Coach Manny, and Coach Tunde played in the second annual BACC 2012 Above the Rim 3 on 3 Hoops Tournament this past weekend.
The two Team Esface teams met in the championship coincidentally, so either way it was a victory for Team Esface. But just for the record, and bragging rights, Coach Dele and Remi’s team won.
With 30 teams registered, there were 116 players total in the tournament, with the games divided into 3 categories:
- Middle School Division
- High School Division
- Adult Division

NBA guard Matt Barnes makes noise in the SF Pro Am once again by breaking ankles and hitting a game winner to win the Dream Team’s 4th championship. As a bay area native (born in Santa Clara and played high school ball in Sacramento), he tries to make it back every off season (summer) just in time for Pro Am playoffs.
This was the 8th year of Team Esface’s Matt Lottich Life Skills Basketball Camps (MLLS).
Not only does the unparalleled staff at MLLS know how to teach the game and have fun with young, aspiring ballers…many of them also have a unique ability to dunk. With the great energy provided by the kids of session 2, 3 coaches line up and make their first attempts in the first round.
1st dunk: Manny Martin with an amazing soar over junior coach Kyle Carter sitting in a chair in the key.
2nd dunk: Dele “hot sauce” Sobomehin throws it up for himself for a crispy two – to – one hand slam.
3rd dunk: Coach Matt Lottich closes out with a ridiculous 360! After all those seasons in overseas he still has it!
Much love to the session II kids…be on the look out for more dunks to come in sessions 3-6!
One of Team Esface’s year-round AAU squads, led by Coach Dele and known as the Class of 2020 (college class), just won their first Gold in a Sacramento tournament hosted by Sac Area Sports. With a 9 man roster for 2 of the 3 games, they had a solid bench for the entire tournament, winning every game in the top 7th grade bracket by at least a 13 point margin. Their last Fall AAU tournament will be Nov. 6th at the Hardwood Palace in Rocklin, CA. Be on the look out for highlight footage coming soon.
Go Team Esface!!
