London Elite U16 has started their preparation for season 2019/20. Initially we placed just one U16 team into the league, though it didn’t take us long to realise our program is offering amazing development and support resulting in attracting new players which led us into forming 2nd team in just 3rd month of club existence !
It is not a surprise for our director Daniel as he was following closely what progress team has been making. Here are his words:
“I am really happy that this project is growing rapidly but it comes as no surprise to me. Having great partnership with way2work in terms of highlights, great location for our home Alec Reed Academy but what is most important, we have one of best coaches in business taking care of our talented group. This combination is designed for success”
We are happy to confirm that Head Coach for London Elite U16 will be Mauro Di Nunzio originally from Italy who moved to London few years ago and has already won a National championship with London U13 regional team. His knowledge, passion and understanding of the game is definitely making London Elite hot place on basketball map for London. This is what he had to say:
“London Elite, to me is a part a new elite journey of my career. The club and its programme immediately attracted me for the tenacious will to improve the community providing the best options for the players and the coaches. I just needed a small conversation with Daniel to understand that it was the place to be. In fact, I feel the support of the club and the extreme passion of Basketball. My aim is to push myself to learn to transfer to the kids the same love that I have for basketball and try to get them better day by day.”
As season starts in early November boys are training 2-3 times a week getting ready for upcoming challenges.Two of the key players, Nezelle Soberano and Anthony Atakpu have been called up by coach Daniel to represent London Elite U17 with most prestigious league in Europe, EYBL with first trip to Latvia happening over October half term camp.
