My name is Isha Nambisan and I am a 17-year-old senior at Mission San Jose High School. From the first time that I picked up a basketball, I fell in love with the game, and have been passionate about becoming better at it every day. I started playing basketball competitively since 5th grade and never stopped playing, to the point that now I play competitively traveling to places like Portland, Vegas, and Chicago playing against some of the best competition across the nation.

Why I Founded Cereball
Strength training, cardio conditioning and skills training used to be the way to become the best player on the court. Nowadays, however, elite players also spend a lot of time training “the muscles above the neck”, which means brain training and mental conditioning.
The name CereBall is a combination of the two aspects of the program: Cere comes from the cerebral cortex and Ball incorporates basketball into the name. I founded CereBall because I wanted to share my love of the game with young girls and teach them the scientific concepts that govern the game.
