Known primarily for our ability to develop players of all ability levels, 75% of Iowa Prep Alumni have moved on to play college athletics. Whether 9U or 17U, you’ll learn the value of being PROCESS DRIVEN in your quest to become the best athlete and citizen you can possibly be.

We have worked diligently the last several months, assessing options internally and gathering feed back from the CDC and IDPH web-sites and other club directors.  Current Iowa Prep families are asked to continue to check their email for more detailed information regarding changes in the 2020-21 seasons. Fall/winter practices and tournaments are currently taking place! Please refer to the online schedules to stay up to date.

We are continuing to ask for all Iowa Prep families to remain flexible this year.  We will continue to do our best to monitor the constantly changing suggestions of the CDC and IDPH in an effort to provide the safest best experience for all.

As always, the line of communication remains open.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
