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, his basketball talents were overlooked by most colleges so he traveled north and attended 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 role he was injured and had to forgo his college career. Adam went on to graduate with a B.A. in Journalism with minors in both Broadcasting and Philosophy in 2004.
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, China and Luxembourg 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 (Peninsula) and in the summer of 2013 was appointed to Regional Director of the San Jose/Santa Clara region. This area has since become the South Bay and is the fastest growing branch in company history to date.
