Adam Arella- Director

Adam Arella has been involved with the game of basketball for over 20 years, both as a player and as a coach. He grew up in Northern California, attending Palo Alto High School in Palo Alto, California. After playing just two years, he was overlooked by most colleges so he decided to travel north and attend California State University, Chico. While focusing primarily on his academics, he walked-on to the Varsity team his 3rd year, but before he could contribute in a playing roll he was injured and had to forgo his college career. Adam went on to graduate with a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Broadcasting and Philosophy in 2005.

Adam didn't lose his passion for playing the sport of basketball after Chico, so he continued playing as a professional in Australia, Ireland, Norway, Germany and China from 2005-2008. Upon his return to the states, he discovered One on One Basketball in his hometown of Palo Alto and quickly developed a love for coaching. He has moved steadily from After School Coach to assistant regional director and in the Summer of 2013 he was appointed to Regional Director of the San Jose/Santa Clara Region.
