TNT5 History

TNT5 Basketball Development is a family owned and operated organization founded in 2009 by long time 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 90% of our clients outside of its home town.

The demand for our product has grown significantly in the past eight 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 add to the TNT5 staff to serve an increase in demand. In addition, skills academies and team training were added as TNT5 offerings in an effort to meet the growing demand for it’s product. The organization soon gained the reputation as the best skill development organization in

Since then, Iowa Prep off-season teams (2014) and special programs such as “Sunday’s In the Fall” (2015) and youth coach development seminars and clinics have joined other offerings. Currently, TNT5 contracts six clinicians, an assistant 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 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.
