When Coach Jamal Edwards visits his hometown of Taylor, MI, he sees potential everywhere.

Growing up in the suburb of Detroit, he's always channeled his energy on the court; countless doors opened for him in the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, Germany, and Austria.

Coach Edwards knew one day he'd pay it forward.

After executing many successful events through the Taylor Made Basketball Academy, established in 2005, Coach Edwards realized teaching fundamentals and discipline needed far longer than a 3-5 day camp to make a lasting impact in the lives of youth. Now he's offering programs targeting underserved communities (inner city, rural, international and military youth), through the Taylor Made Prep Academy in Avondale, AZ. Created in 2014, Coach Edwards is committed to spreading his passion for academics, athletics, and the benefits of organized sports.

"Everyone who suits up will have equal opportunities to grow their natural gifts and talents," says Coach Edwards.

TMP is an all-inclusive organization providing academics, training and exposure opportunities to student-athletes. We pride ourselves on full transparency, high quality athletic programs, leadership development, academic preparation, sport-specific skills and strength training (with an emphasis in exercise science), and a challenging competition schedule that allows for greater exposure of the student-athletes. The youth and post-graduate sport programs will develop our athletes and create opportunities to play collegiate sports. 

Our program home is located at the American Sports Centers-Avondale in addition to various satellite locations throughout the valley. .
