After taking a year off because of COVID, we didn’t know what a return season would look like. With some of our core players moving on to some amazing teams/opportunities, we knew we are going to have to rebuild from the ground up. However, to our surprise, our season ended up on a positive note.[Read more…] about Ares Basketball first travel tournament
As we have seen, there has been a lot of media around the Coronavirus and how we are running out of toilet paper and water at Costco. We have heard people make jokes of the virus and hard of peoples fears. No matter who believes what and how they take the news, we here at Ares Basketball would like to share what we know and what we would like folks to do to help keep us all healthy.

As the season seems to be blowing by, we are all excited to watch the teams grow. The teams seem to start understanding where they need to be and what needs to be done on the court. Recent drills to fine tune some fundamentals on both offense and defense, rebounding, and playmaking, really paid off this last tournament.
Saturday we battled at the Trust The Process Fall Showcase Tournament held at Soldiertown in Oakland, California. 11u walked away with the championship and 13u walked away having an amazing tournament all around.
13u Ares Team
The 13u is a special group of kids. They range from age 11-13 and have shown a tremendous amount of growth of the last few months. There is no secret to who one of our key players are on the team. Torey who runs the point for out team has been an exceptional player and young man. As the team gets to know each other, there is only good things to come.
The 3 games 13u played were against Trust The Process, Scholars, and the Hayward Panthers finishing 2-1 for the tournament. All 3 games were great. Two, one point games and a win by 20. Even though these boys still have a long process ahead of them still, we are proud how far they have come along.
11u Ares Team
The 11u executed the game plan just like we practiced it the week of. They have gotten down the concept of the fast break and their defensive positioning was just right. These boys went 3-0 on paper, our last game of the evening we ended up playing a 12u team as a scrimmage and even a couple of the siblings who are almost/are 12 got to help and earn them self a ring.
With an actual record of 2-1 in the tournament, the 11u won big in the first two games and hung in there well with the 12u team they competed against.
Phenom Coach at Soldiertown
Alex and Rehmat got to compete and participate in the Phenom All American Camp help annually in San Diego. Their Coach Leo Svete from the camp happens to live in the San Francisco Bay Area and we ended up running into him at the tournament. The kids who participated naturally were happy to see him and were quick to pose with him between our games.
Coach Leo has played basketball both in College and in the European league. He holds training on the Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area and we hope to have him out to get a session in with our club. Alex and Rehmat both have been invited back to Phenom and they look forward to seeing their coach again.
