TaleMed is proud of the work of Nati Elite: Bettering the lives of children in the Greater Cincinnati area, one basket at a time.

Nati Elite Basketball Organization is Cincinnati’s newest rising star in AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) boys’ basketball league. It’s a highly competitive basketball program designed to focus on hard work, skill development and commitment. The organization’s founder, Michael Hill, possesses a passion for serving and equipping Cincinnati area youth with the tools they need to excel in the classroom, on the basketball court and in life.


Their mission is to utilize the game of basketball to teach children how to overcome adversity, embrace unity and develop character. Nati Elite collaborates with parents to mentor, train, teach and enrich the lives of their children.


As a new organization, Nati Elite has earned local and national recognition. The group placed 7th in the 2017 8U AAU National Tournament in Washington D.C. Prior to entering the AAU National Tournament, Nati Elite placed first in the 2017 All-Ohio Nike Cup Tournament and first in nine local tournaments.


In addition to its AAU teams, Nati Elite offers training, recreational leagues, camps and more. During the 2016-2017 season, Nati Elite consisted of a 2nd and 3rd-grade boys team. This upcoming season, they will expand by adding four additional teams, including a 2nd-grade girls team. Each of these teams will compete in local and national competitions.

The organization is not only providing a positive environment for children – they are also providing a platform for the younger generation to learn about life and develop teamwork skills.
