Iowa Barnstormers Basketball


Barnstormers Basketball of Iowa was established to provide talented young athletes with quality teaching, competition, exposure, teammates, and a unique “family” atmosphere outside of their school basketball programs. The Barnstormers started with a single team in 2005, added teams at multiple age groups in 2006 and added our first middle school teams in 2007.

The Barnstormers have an exclusive sponsorship agreement with adidas to provide apparel to the athletes in our program. We are proud to be the only Iowa program to participate in the adidas “Gauntlet Series”, the most competitive high school grassroots league in the country!

Barnstormers Basketball of Iowa is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization: money or other donations to the Barnstormers are used to defray travel costs for athletes and parents, purchase uniforms and other gear, and pay tournament entry fees.  All donations to the Barnstormers are deductible by donors for Federal income tax purposes.
