Established as a basketball academy in 2004,
All Iowa Attack has made a positive impact on youth in the state of Iowa and on the national level. In our 15th year of existence, our primary goal is still to provide an educational and national-level competitive basketball program that focuses on learning, fundamentals, leadership, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
Spectra, operators of Xtream Arena & GreenState Family Fieldhouse on behalf of ArenaCo, has agreed in principle with All Iowa Attack to open a youth basketball academy that will operate out of the GreenState Family Fieldhouse. Fourth through eighth grade boys and girls’ teams will kick off the fall/winter 2020 season in Coralville, followed by the ninth through 11th grade boys and girls teams starting in the spring/summer 2021. All Iowa Attack, which was established in Ames in 2004, will have teams based out of both Ames and Coralville, and will be considered one program with the same shared vision.
“Our goal as a program is to provide an educational, competitive basketball program for third through 11th grade boys and girls across the state,” said All-Iowa Attack Program Director Blake Jensen. “By adding a second location in Coralville, we will be able to extend our reach across the state, allowing more athletes to be a part of the Attack program and to take advantage of the opportunities that it provides.”
Spectra’s Michael Rooney, Fieldhouse Director for GreenState Family Fieldhouse added: “We are excited to partner with Dickson and Blake Jensen to bring the All-Iowa Attack to GreenState Family Fieldhouse. ArenaCo envisioned this facility to be an economic driver in Coralville and Eastern Iowa as part of the Iowa River Landing District, so we’re looking forward to working with the All-Iowa Attack to help make that vision a reality.”
Spectra’s partnership with All-Iowa Attack provides GreenState Family Fieldhouse as the exclusive Eastern Iowa home for the basketball academy to conduct practices and tournaments in Coralville. The Fieldhouse will also host Coralville Parks and Recreation programs, tournaments for other sports, and camps and clinics throughout the year. Xtream Arena & GreenState Family Fieldhouse will open August 2020. The GreenState Family Fieldhouse is a five-court, 53,000 sq. ft. fieldhouse directly connected to Xtream Arena.
“The City of Coralville thanks the All Iowa Attack for expanding to Eastern Iowa and opening a location within the GreenState Family Fieldhouse,” said Coralville Mayor John Lundell. “This partnership will be a major factor in bringing additional visitors to our city to experience all we have to offer.”
All Iowa Attack will begin hosting weekend basketball tournaments at the GreenState Family Fieldhouse in Coralville beginning November 2020. More information on exact dates for tournaments will be coming soon. Learn more about programs and teams at alliowaattack.com or contact Blake Jensen at .
