Youth Basketball Academy Offering Teams, Camps, and Training | Redwood City, California

WELCOME TO THE 2019-20 WINTER Season BLACK CLUB

ABOUT THE BLACK CLUB ACADEMY

Our Black Club, popularly known as “AAU” basketball, consists of the top players in our Academy. Our teams will travel to various Bay Area venues to compete against top talent in Northern California. Team Esface aims to expose our players to ballers whose love for basketball and commitment to improvement parallels our own.

This Black Club academy is a “dual-impact” approach to club basketball that attacks both individual and team development. During team practices, coaches merge players’ current abilities to create a cohesive unit on the hardwood; while team practices are focused mostly on team concepts, we believe integrating individual skill development is crucial to each players long-term growth and team success.

Each grade class will ideally have two teams with a roster size of 9 - 11 players. These team rosters can adjust periodically based upon the needs of the player(s) and the team dynamic during the season. Every coach from each class will know every player along with their strengths and weaknesses, this will give us a better opportunity to service the player through multiple coaches with unique perspectives and strengths. All teams in a grade (e.g. 11U Black 1 and 2) will practice at the same time and will be taught similar offensive and defensive principles.
