what people are saying

The Iowa Prep program has exceeded our expectations in every way. We were told that winning is important but not as important as improving our daughter’s basketball skills, for her High School team and possibly college, if she pursues it. They have experienced coaches with high basketball IQ’s and the skills to teach that information to the players. The team members not only work on technical skills but also receive individual feedback throughout the season. Our daughter has also benefited from the individual coaching sessions, offered as part of the program. We were welcomed into the TNT/Iowa Prep Family and have enjoyed our season. We would recommend this program to any child/parent who wants to improve their skills and be part of a team. We just wish we would have found the program when our daughter was younger.
