The ReaLeague (pronounced Real League) is an INVITE ONLY Team Esface’s internal basketball league aimed at providing Bay Area athletes consistent, high-level coaching and competition on a weekly basis.
From Monday-Thursday, ReaLeague participants look to attack their weaknesses in their option of Team Esface Skills Clinics and Private Workouts preparing them to battle on the hardwood with their teams every Friday Night (weekend games for JV & Varsity Divisions) in state-of-the-art locations across Redwood City – SportsHouse and Arrillaga Family Gym. ReaLeague players – boys ages 9 - 17 play professionally officiated games, culminating in playoffs and a championship game to win the coveted ReaLeague trophy.
Team Esface created ReaLeague with the vision of a high-energy culture and environment that offers players a low-stakes opportunity to experiment and develop their skills, IQ, and style, while maximizing player-coach interaction. Team Esface promises real competition, real coaching, and real results; hence the name, REALEAGUE.

what to expect during your season?
All ReaLeague players will go through the following programs to help them Attack Their Weaknesses before the important basketball season in the Winter.
SKILL DEVELOPMENT WORKOUTS
Each package will consist of at least* one skill workout a week. These clinics will focus on developing the mind, body and skill of every player. We create a low stakes, high energy environment where players are urged to give their best and try new things. Workouts will be separated by division & skill level (Open and Black) and feature our patented "levels" curriculum so that every player gets the exact attention and curriculum they need no matter their skill level.
TWO TYPES OF WORKOUTS:
OPEN WORKOUTS: For non-returning black club players. We will have workouts focused on fundamentals and building their competitiveness skill through our 90 minute workouts. These are referred to as "OPEN WORKOUTS" on the schedule.
FOR OUR RETURNING BLACK CLUB PLAYERS: You will receive at least* one specialized 90 small group skill workout. These specialized skill workouts will be position and skill specific for each player to help them attack their weaknesses during the Fall. These are referred to as "BLACK WORKOUTS" on the schedule.
ONE REALEAGUE GAME PER WEEK
Our ReaLeague games are low-stakes, high energy environments where players are urged to try out the skills they learned in their clinics and workouts. These games are professionally officiated and coached games aimed to develop REAL growth.
During the season we will have 1 week of pre-season, followed by 5 weeks of season games, then 2 weeks of playoff games.
10U & 12U Divisions will play Friday games at Arrillaga Family Gym (in Menlo Park), while 14U Divisions will play their games at SportsHouse.
High School Divisions will play their games at Sequoia High School on Sundays.
MENTAL TRAINING WORKSHOPS
Mental fortitude are essential pieces for anyone's success in this world, so we will be developing an 8 week mental training & goal planning workshop that will be held right before your clinics and after some games.
Our internal Mental Training Coach Keith Jensen has provided us with the mental curriculum used by Pro's all over the world.
private training AVAILABLE
If you are looking for additional private training with our elite skill trainers you can sign up for small group workouts throughout the Fall Season to maximize your training expereince with us.
Many of our elite basketball players participate in ReaLeague, workouts and private training opportunities during the fall season to maximize their potential before the basketball season.
10U - 14U DIVISIONS
10U, 12U, and 14U Divisions (for Players Ages 9 - 14)
For novice to intermediate players we focus on teaching players the core fundamentals of basketball in a fun energetic environment that will keep them wanting to learn more every day. We also provide a training and playing setting that is low stakes so that players are not worried about failing, rather, they want to focus on implementing what they learn in clinics.
For our more advanced Black Club players we offer a specialized curriculum and elite coaching that will test their skill set and challenge them to attack their weaknesses during this crucial off season.
HIGH SCHOOL DIVISIONS
JV & Varsity Divisions (Ages 15 and up)
Our ReaLeague High School Divisions are the most competitive Fall leagues in the bay area. Our goal for every player is to prepare them to play (and start) for their High School team in the Winter season.
We do this by providing our high school players:
- Elite Curriculum that is customized to the NEW High School player
- Elite Coaching from players that have played in college and in the pro levels.
- Elite Competition in our leagues that will prepare players for the upcoming Winter Season.
