About the Founder - Rodel Cruzet

Rodel Cruzet

Hi my name is Rodel Cruzet, my love of basketball started when i was 9 years when i first began playing competitive basketball. I started assistant coaching for local National Junior Basketball & School teams at 13 years old, ever since i’ve had a passion, love, and desire to make those around me better & better every day. I was awarded the Community Service Award at my 8th grade graduation from St. John Vianney in 2002, later graduated from Moreau Catholic Highschool in Hayward in 2006. I formed Team Elite Basketball in 2008 and dedicated my life to share my knowledge to young athletes. In 2012 i opened a 10,000 sq. foot basketball facility, we now have over 200 kids in our club teams, group training & individual training.

I have a desire and a passion to get every player better, i workout with them, i sweat with them, i motivate them every day because i know with hard work & dedication we can achieve our goals & through that hard work & dedication players realize with the same work ethic anything is achievable.

He coaches AAU teams through Team Elite, and last season he was the head coach of boys All-Net teams for both Willow Glen and Berryessa NJB.
