VYPE HOOPS – Featured Team
Future Leaders Elite – Middle School Girls

This month’s featured team is Future Leaders Elite, and I was able to stop by their last practice before they headed off to Primetime Nationals in Dallas, Tx. The F.L.Elite girls’ team is a team full of hard working girls who have one common goal and that is to win.

The program was started by Sesalie Johnson because she wanted to be able to use basketball as a positive influence on kids. “Life skills, character building and learning to be a tea

m player on the court will help these young athletes be an overall more successful person in their life journey.” – Sesalie Johnson

I was able to meet the F.L Elite group back in March as they attend VYPE Hoops – Who’s Got Next girls event, this would be their first games as a team. Immediately you could see the team was led by a very energetic and passionate Coach Troy, who recently moved from New York. The team is also led on the court by a couple of very talented point guards. Upholding the Future Leaders mission statement relentlessly day in and out; Nyla Poole and Neveah Craft. Nyla and Neveah love the game enough to lead their team in a way that make their coaches proud.

They didn’t leave with a championship their first trip to VYPE Hoops, but they had a starting point and were ready to get back in the gym to work. On their second trip to a VYPE Hoops tournament they walked away with a championship. F.LElite ended the season with 4 championships. You couldn’t help but notice their increase of basketball IQ, skill development and team chemistry on the court. They truly are a great group to watch and cheer on. They ended their season at the Primetime Nationals by winning their pool and making it to bracket play on Saturday. The team left Dallas with their coaches extremely proud and excited to get ready for the next season.

“Coach Sesalie has been Jada’s personal basketball trainer for over two years and is undoubtedly the best basketball trainer in Houston. She not only endeavors to elevate each child’s basketball skill level, she takes great pride in their academic and mental developmental as well.
