Saratoga NJB partners with Saratoga Phenoms Travel Teams!!!The BIG news is that Saratoga NJB will now be working closely with the Saratoga Phenoms which is a travel league AAU Basketball Club. The Phenoms have teams for boys in each age group from U11 to U14 for players who want to advance their skills year round (Spring/Summer & Fall) with the best coaches playing against the best competition. The goal of the Phenoms is to develop players in and around Saratoga/Campbell who wish to play on NJB AllNet teams and eventually their HS teams by providing the advanced training in fundamentals required to succeed.
The U14 Saratoga Phenoms coached by Colin Wan played in their first tournament of the Spring/Summer season in San Ramon facing off against the top teams in Northern California including the Oakland Soldiers, NBBA plus a team from LA (Lift Off). The team will have additional tournaments including traveling to Reno and LA to test their abilities against other top teams nation wide!!
