"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord"

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Indiana Swish is a basketball program created to develop young athletes in both the game of basketball and life. Our teams are based out of Marion, but not limited to players just from Marion area. We seek players who want to develop skills and growth over primarily the spring, summer, and fall months with a team first concept and not just a typical “AAU/ME FIRST” attitude which is very common on travel basketball teams.
Not only is our goal to create local teams, but to also host tournaments on a local level. We hope to attract teams from a 60-mile radius to come to Marion, which has a rich history of basketball. We believe that being located between Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis gives us the ability to attract teams from many communities.
With the proper leadership and facility, we see this being a great opportunity for not only Indiana Swish, but also for the youth in the area.
Indiana Swish will have 3 different areas of operations “Triple Threat” -TEAM-TOURNAMENTS-TEACHING
Our 2018 tournament season has come to an end. I am thankful for all of the players, parents, family/friends, coaches, referees, Lakeview staff and Swish staff for your support over the last few months.
We were able to bring youth basketball to Marion in a positive and healthy environment. We hosted 124 basketball games over 6 weekends which brought teams in from different parts of the state. 47 young men from Grant county and beyond were able to compete and work towards improving their basketball abilities on Swish teams. We look forward to following them in the upcoming school season to see the continuing growth in their lives.
Our teams have the unique opportunity to play basketball for some of the best coaches around. Our coaches are coaching for one reason, to help develop their team into better athletes and young men. Winning is not the focus for our teams but only a result of the hard work and focused training our players receive while playing for Indiana Swish.
We hope you decide to join our team! We look forward to be a part of your investment into your basketball development!!
Not only is our goal to create local teams, but to also host tournaments on a local level. These teams will consist of school teams and travel teams. We hope to attract teams from a 60 mile radius to come to Marion, which has a rich history of basketball. We believe that being located between Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis gives us the ability to attract teams from many communities.
Our primary host site will be the Lakeview Wesleyan Church located at 5316 S Western Ave, Marion, IN 46953. Lakeview has 2 courts that will provide a great environment. We'll also utilize other gymnasiums in the area.
Indiana Swish is focused on the development of our young athletes and not just about athleticism or basketball, but life.
Our coaches are devoted to give our players the tools to be successful. Playing in tournaments or practicing once a week is not enough. Playing games will only show the efforts that the player has made in practice. If players are interested in one on one training, we'd be happy to help them in that area!
