Coach Nai Carlisle


Coach Nai Carlisle

I graduated from West Lafayette HS, directly across the street from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I was fortunate to be named to the state’s All-Academic team and graduate as the school’s all-time leading scorer and assist leader in basketball.

I received my first Division 1 basketball offer as a freshman in High School. I ultimately decided to return to California by accepting a full basketball scholarship to attend San Jose State University.

As fate would have it, the coach who recruited me was fired after my first year, and I decided to transfer after my second year to Cal State East Bay, where I finished my career as an All-Conference player while graduating with a degree in English.

Given that I had to navigate the ups and downs of being a student-athlete, it helped me develop a resilient mindset and the ability to work thru adversity.

It is those critical life skills that I aspire to help young athletes through, in addition to developing their athletic capacity.

Having trained under my Father all my life and having a thirst for learning about various aspects of training, it brings me great joy to help others reach their full potential.
