Transform this FALL. TRAIN & COMPETE.



"My son joined Team Esface after disappointing attempts to learn skills in school basketball.  When we saw the videos online and learned about the Esface philosophy, we were all in and over the moon to finally have found coaches who shared our love of basketball and could really up his game."  - Cherie H.

Transform your game

To be successful at the next level, every athlete must be thoroughly equipped with a strong mind, a tough body, and complete skill-set to execute at every moment of the game. It's our job to get you there.

Your athlete will learn how to be a game-changer on both sides of the court, ultimately building confidence on and off the court. We run all of our basketball programs with an understanding that we are building the leaders for our future. Every play and every possession is an opportunity to learn.

Our background

Founded in 2004 on the Peninsula, Team Esface is a basketball academy for players ages five through 18. Our goal is to prepare all players to play well in high school, college, professional, and life. No matter a player's point in their basketball journey, we work with them to design a path to achieve their personal & athletic goals.

What does "Esface" mean?

Esface is an acronym for Education and Service through Fashion, Athletics, Community and Entertainment. 

Education – in basketball training and character development -- a skills “crossover” to life. 

Service – to our young athletes, people, and community, building exceptional character and drive. 

Fashion – because threads are your second skin and announce your upbeat self. “Look good. Feel good. Play good.” 

Athletics – are the hook, what drives you to give everything you got individually and as a team. 

Community – to create bonds among kids from diverse family backgrounds who have no other way than sports to connect. 

Entertainment – because high-energy enjoyment and creativity should be in everything we do.
