HEAD COACH: NICK CARUSO
Coach Nick Caruso grew up outside of Boston where he participated in Basketball, football, soccer, and hockey. After years of playing them all, he grew a passion for basketball when he began to play on the AAU circuit. Playing with Bay State Jaguars Select, Nick earned 5 state championships, 3 New England championships and an 11th place finish at the AAU National Championships. Nick then played 2 years of varsity at Wellesley High School where, unfortunately, his career was cut short due to multiple injuries.
As Nick stepped off the court as a player, he began to realize his passion for coaching through various summer camps and CYO leagues. As a player, Nick emphasized hard work, toughness, and companionship; he hopes to instill all of those values for his teams from the sidelines.
Coach Caruso ventured to San Francisco in 2014 to attend City College of San Francisco, where he majors in business management. He is hoping the skills he learns in the management world can provide a new perspective to his coaching experience. While in San Francisco, Nick has served as a head coach for the past 3 years at Bay City Basketball. Coaching boys grade 7-11, he has enjoys the competitiveness and intensity that comes with the AAU circuit. He has also served 2 years as the JV assistant at University High School in Pacific Heights. Nick hopes to bring his passion for basketball and coaching expertise to the International basketball program.
