West Coast Elite Under Armour one of the premier AAU/grassroots organizations in the world is proud to announce our strategic plan with our Northern California expansion. WCE UA currently has over 60 student-athletes playing Division I basketball and 100+ at the division 2/division 3 and NAIA levels. We are very excited about our Northern California expansion.
West Coast Elite NorCal will continue to communicate the acquisition of several programs in the Northern California and Oakland areas in the coming weeks. We will have 3 16U teams, 3 15U teams, and 3 14U teams. Brian Driscoll will coach the 16U UAA team, Wayne Hunter will coach our 15U UAA team, and Chris Whirlow will coach our 14U UAA team. Brian Driscoll has been named the Director of the program and Chris Whirlow has been named the Associate Director. West Coast Elite Nor Cal will be the brother program to West Coast Elite So Cal. Both programs will participate in the Under Armour Association. West Coast Elite is the only Under Armour sponsored program in the state of California.
West Coast Elite President Ryan Silver on the NorCal UA program: "The response in Northern California and Oakland has been overwhelming. There is so much love and support for West Coast Elite and we are extremely excited to start February 1, 2018. We will have 9 teams which will be a similar structure to our brother program West Coast Elite Under Armour Southern California. Our objective will remain the same to continue to make kids and families dreams come true. We are honored and blessed to help student athletes achieve success in basketball and in life.”
More announcements and acquisitions are expected out of the Los Angeles based program in the coming weeks.
