"NME was a great experience for both of my boys. Very, very organized program with personal and team growth in mind. The confidence and comradeship that was instilled in the players was so special to see. First class program with first class leadership."
- G. Cherry, Parent
"NME was a great experience. It was well run, organized and very competitive. It definitely prepared the boys for varsity [high school] basketball. It was like a family as the parents involved were awesome and the coaching staff really cared about the boys. A great organization that I would recommend to anyone."
- S. Wirth, Parent
"Our son participated in NME from the beginning. The program was top notch, competitive, well-organized and beneficial to his basketball and character development. It’s everything we were looking for in an AAU program!"
- G. Williams, Parent
"Our son got selected and played AAU ball from 8th - 12th grade for Coach Rodriguez and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience. He continuously exceeded our expectations not only with the team but individually with our Son. You won't find a better teacher, mentor and Coach anywhere. Coach Steve has a way of influencing and building players that we have never seen, a true leader from communication with players and parents to on the court instruction. He is Tough, he is Relentless and most of all he is Caring. He epitomizes greatness and drew it out of all of the players. AAU ball, specifically North Metro Elite, was a tremendously positive force that brought out excellence in skills and discipline in our Son as a Player and a young Man. You won't find a more organized and structured organization anywhere. We are very thankful to Coach Steve for our Son's memorable travel ball seasons and are even more grateful for all of the off court growth and professionalism we saw in him."
