TNT5 History

TNT5 Basketball Development is a family owned and operated organization founded in 2009 by longtime college basketball coach Tim Schuring and his family. TNT5 is committed to providing quality, efficient, convenient and affordable basketball training for youth players and coaches using several different formats. Although our corporate offices and home facility are in Decorah, IA, our organization is largely mobile with approximately 97% of our clients outside of its hometown.

The demand for our product has grown significantly in the past ten years. During year one, while serving as an Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at Luther College, Coach Schuring provided personal and group sessions for 154 clients (271 training sessions) from 8 school districts across Iowa, SE Minnesota and SW Wisconsin.  One year later, two more clinicians were added to the TNT5 staff to serve an increase in demand.  In addition, skills camps and team training were added as TNT5 offerings in an effort to meet the growing demand for its product.  The organization soon gained the reputation as the best skill development organization in

TNT5 Basketball Development also powers Iowa Prep off-season teams (2014), special programs such as “Sunday’s In the Fall” (2015),  Youth Coach Development Seminars (2016) and the TNT5 Youth Tournament Series.   Along with 5 clinicians, TNT5 contracts an assistant director, tournament director, and 24 team coaches.  We currently serve more than 700 clients from 41 school districts and will conduct more than 1000 hours of training by year’s end.

what people are saying

The TNT5 staff has been doing personal work-outs with all four of my children for the past four years. The results have been amazing! The skill and work ethic that have been developed has given each one of my kids a greater degree of confidence on and off the court. For parents who want to help their children maximize their potential, on and off the court, there is no doubt that TNT5 is a great program. This is the best way I have found. My kids and I look forward to continuing the program far into the future. Thanks Coach!
