PROSPERITY is a basketball developmental program designed to build the basketball skills of players from a beginner level to an established player.  We accept all athletes with various skill levels to compete and train in customized and individualized sessions designed and tailored to their specific skill set.  As a players' developmental maturity increases, so does our level of trainings, performance regiments, and level of competition. So, whether you are a first time or an experienced player, We have a starting stage that is right for ANY player!

Although we emphasize athletic development, it is just as important that we also focus on “personal development” to help our participants become well rounded "student-athletes".   Our sessions also incorporate teaching participants proper social skills, high school and college level preparation and readiness.  We are also parents, so we expect the same behavior that ALL PARENTS EXPECT.  

Darin Brown

Coach Darin Brown grew up in Southern Illinois and was recognized as an All-State Guard while playing Varsity basketball at Meridian High School in Mounds, IL. He then attended and played for McKendree University. Darin was the Junior Varsity head coach at CICS Ralph Ellison Charter School for 2 seasons while also serving as Assistant Varsity coach. His Junior Varsity team had the best school record for most wins in a season. During past summers he was a Basketball Counselor for the Jimmy Collins Basketball Camp (at UIC). Darin briefly served as head coach to the semi-pro women's team, The Chicago Steam. Coach Darin says "I have a passion for coaching our youth. I believe that every child has the ability to do great things; they just need someone to guide them down the right path. I didn't have the easiest childhood and basketball was my outlet. Through the game of basketball I learned how to focus, be persistent, to never give up and to challenge myself to do better than I did the day before. These values are instilled in my coaching style. Life lessons are learned in your younger years. To several of my players, I become more than a basketball coach; I become their life coach and mentor. My players look up to me and I pride myself on showing them that I won't give up on them. I just need to make sure they don't give up on themselves.
