Elite Prep is the first of its kind in the Pacific NW. We are located in Issaquah, WA. Elite Prep was founded to provide young male student athletes with a platform to play against the nation’s best high school basketball programs while also securing a college scholarship. We will provide an academic regiment that will not only improve the student athlete’s transcript, but will also prepare him with the study habits necessary to be successful at the collegiate level. 
Elite Prep will have a rigorous skill development program that will prepare our athletes to have the skill set needed to compete at the college level. The final component to our program is providing these young men with life skills that will help them make the right choices to become mature/productive men in our society. Below is an overview of Elite Prep, please contact Tayon Ary-Turner at 425-441-8280 with any questions.
