Tipping Point Basketball is focused on improving each player's skill set that will make them the best high school basketball player possible. Every kid wants to play college basketball but it starts with being a great high school player and teammate. One of the most common questions we get from college coaches when they ask about a player is “what kind of teammate is he/she?”. Everyone on our coaching staff is a high school coach at heart. We understand what it takes to be a great varsity basketball player and what it takes to win at the varsity level. We train players and prepare them with that mindset. Once a player is a legitimate candidate to play at the next level, we take great pride in the relationships we have built with college coaches and work hand in hand with our players through the process. We share film, stats, etc. We do whatever it takes to get college opportunities for our players. Tipping Point Basketball has produced dozens of college scholarship players, 2 players ranked number one in the state for 3-point field goal percentage, All-State, All-Conference, and All-Area selections with multiple players leading Elkhart County in scoring. Additionally, Tipping Point athletes have been chosen for the prestigious McDonald’s All-Star game hosted by Bethel University. Will you be the next one?
