Welcome to Nor Cal Elite Basketball

Nor Cal Elite is one of the nation's top NCAA Showcase basketball clubs.  Over the last 10 years we have had over 60 players sign full scholarships with leading division I and II colleges and the NAIA, such as University of Tennessee, University of Oregon, Kansas St., Baylor University, Arizona St., San Diego State, William Jessup University, and many more. Our players are among the best in the nation. We seek out the area's most talented, driven student-athletes and implement a training regimen created to give them the advanced skills necessary to become consistent student-athletes at the next level. Our goal is to foster an environment where athletes who wish to take their game to another level, have not only the opportunity to do so,  but also have the people in place who can help them reach their individual goals.  

We specialize in travel teams, which attend competitive NCAA showcase tournaments in the US. The games are attended by over 350 of the nation's top college coaches.

--Things That Really Matter--

 Hey Coach D,
I want to thank you for laying a great foundation with my daughter Kayla "BAM" Blair (Vanden 2015). It seems like yesterday that we were in the gym working on her ballhandling and mental preparation for playing in front of college coaches. I have never met an AAU coach that spent the time that you did on how to conduct yourself at exposure tourneys. Run off the court, cheer for teamates, eye contact with coach, play hard at all times just to name a few. The skill developement in your practices were second to none. Like I said, Thanks for laying a great foundation. All your hard work with her in her Frosh & Soph summers helped her receive the scholarship to Pepperdine University. Thank you for loving and embracing the Blair family.We love you and the NorCal Elite program. 
S. Blair

A+ is for Aliyah

 Some players take time more time to develop than others.  Often the process of "turning the light on", can be tedious and overwhelming.  But no matter how difficult the road may be, some people possess the ability to handle the task.  River City's Aliyah Brantley has paid her dues, done her homework and now the "light" is on-shining brighter than ever.  Next season she will attend Menlo College on a scholarship and continue the process of becoming a great player.  More learning, more studying and  more adjustments. But no worries, the 4.0 student is used to putting in the time that few others are willing to give.  


Still Ballin'!!!!  

Dedicated to NCE alumni that are still "putting in work" on the hoop court.

  Fantasia Hilliard- "Pure PG"

 After three years with Nor Cal Elite, Fantasia Hilliard decided to keep her talents right here at home and played at Sac St.  During her three years, she is destroying the all time assist record and has brought her winning attitude to the Hornets program.  Speed and quickness are her main tools, but ball IQ, amazing defense, a killer crossover and precision passing has helped her become the Big Sky Freshman of the Year and gain a spot amongst the nation's DI assist leaders.
