Our mission is to create an environment for every child to enjoy playing basketball. We aim to provide a unique experience to meet the needs of every individual, whether it be for someone who wants to play recreationally or someone who aspires to play professionally. We aim to demonstrate the discipline, teamwork and hard-work that comes along with the sport. Most importantly, it is our hope that we can show how the sport can have a positive physical, social and mental impact on a young persons life.
About the Founder
Tayo Oyefusi, founder of Just Elite Basketball, was inspired to create this platform from his prior basketball experiences. Understanding the importance and correlation between opportunities and social engagement, Tayo wanted to ensure a higher-level of opportunity for the younger generation.
Tayo began playing basketball at age 11. From there, he received several scholarships to the United States and Universities in England. Accepting a scholarship at the University of Newcastle, he played semi-professional basketball for 8 years. His previous clubs include Manchester Magic, Team Newcastle Knights, Team Northumbria and Team Solent Kestrels.
Tayo believes in creating recreational and professional opportunities for young athletes, helping them achieve their goals.
