The Inland Empire Basketball Program (IEBP) mission is to promote academic and athletic achievement, while developing character and self-esteem, through a commitment to self-improvement, teamwork, and the establishment of positive and realistic goals. Over the past 18 years IEBP has successfully fulfilled its mission, independent of any financial assistance from major corporations or sponsors, sending student athletes on to a myriad of post secondary educational institutions and professional careers.
The first graduating class for IEBP took place in 1997, that year four players advanced to four year institutions. Since that time IEBP has had over 150 student athletes play at different universities across the country. Of those 150 athletes, eighty percent received their advanced degrees. IEBP now assists players from grade level three thru college. IEBP is managed by Mr. Keith Howard and Mr. Julius Patterson who also manage numerous athletic events within the Inland Empire.
