TEAM Esface is an athletic-based youth training and development organization aimed at providing the best athletics coaching to boys and girls in order to achieve positive returns on and off the training arena.
Founded in 2005 as a natural offshoot of Esface’s mission to “make popular culture positive so that positive culture can be popular,” TEAM Esface started as an individual training program and has since developed into sponsoring and hosting: camps, clinics and high school/NJB/AAU teams along the peninsula of the SF Bay Area. Today, TEAM Esface uses these experiences to teach the fundamentals of basketball, instill personal “life leadership” qualities, facilitate cross-cultural exchanges, and build community. Since 2002, TEAM Esface has served over >3,000 youth through hosting over 130 clinics and 56 camps sessions, coaching over 43 teams, and facilitating 6 tournaments.
TEAM Esface’s progressive culture of training, youth development, and community development is captured in our media as well. Please visit the blog to see updated stories of our staff’s, athletes’, and community’s experiences.
