Do you have what it takes to be Top Flight in 2016?

This spring looks to bring a great deal of excitement for all Top Flight Elite Basketball participants. We are offering boys and girls from 4th grade through 11th grade. We focus on fundamental skill development that takes players to the next level.  Every effort will be made to ensure players have an opportunity to demonstrate their basketball abilities during the tryout period and will be evaluated on: Ball Handling, Shooting, Passing, Demonstrating a positive attitude, work ethic, knowledge of the game and satisfactory academic performance.

Players are expected to commit to 6-8 tournaments over the course of the program season. Most tournaments will be local (within the bay area) and others will be out-of-town (Sacramento, Reno, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, etc.) and may require an overnight stay.  Our Elite "Red Teams" may compete in National or Regional Tournaments.  The Program Manager will select the appropriate number and location of tournaments.  Once tournament schedule is finalized, it is expected that players will attend all tournaments and be ready to play.  Tournament play begins in April and ends in July.  You can expect to have one or two tournaments per month. High School Teams can expect more travel as they will be competing in NCAA Certified Tournaments during NCAA viewing periods.
