    AAU Basketball In-State

    Who in the State has the best run AAU Basketball Program? All Iowa Attack? Kingdom Hoops? Barnstormers? Pump N Run? Other Local Clubs? What is the difference in the level of coaching between the local programs in-state and are players at the respective levels in the programs getting better, or are they just a "number" being used for profit, and to make the Directors' ego expand to new heights? What are peoples' honest feelings out their? Who has the most continuity and stability within their organization and runs things smoothly with integrity, respect, and hands-on teaching of fundamentals.

    It really depends on the age level. Some of the coaches at each are great, some of the coaches are people I wouldn't ever pay to coach my kid.

    Barnstormers are the best team in the state, talent wise. Personal suggestion...Bound 4 Glory. J Price does an amazing job there.

    I always thought Martin Brothers was the best team. Has that changed?

    Martin Brothers merged with All Iowa Attack this past summer. AIA/Martin Brothers had, by far, the best team of incoming seniors this past summer. No other team was remotely close. I'm not sure what program in Iowa has the most talent amongst underclassmen.

    All-Iowa Attack is easily the best program. The hard one of the best U17 teams int he nation this year as part of the Nike EYBL. With Martin Bros now merged with them has put the most number of kids into D1 scholies. Former Cyclones Lefty Moore has been involved with the coaching as well as Hank Huddleson. Former Cyclone great Dedric Willoughby is alos now a coach with the program. THey also have a dedicated facility built by Dickson Jensen who also built the Sukup facility for ISU.

    How long have these programs been around?

    I remember playing in tournaments in Des Moines, Gilbert, Marshalltown, etc. Most teams were coached by some kid's father and the games were more of an opportunity to play more before and after the middle school/high school seasons.
