Support Your Warriors

Support your Des Moines area homeschool basketball club … the Des Moines Warriors.  The 2015-16 season has concluded, with much excitement, growth and memories for our players.   Stay tuned to this website for off-season basketball opportunities.  We have high school and junior high teams for girls and boys.


Practice Gym Improvement Project – YOU Can Help!

Our friends at Heritage Assembly of God generously offer their basketball court to the Warriors regularly for girls practice.  We are very grateful for their facility.  The gym floor is concrete, which can cause player injuries, and we have a timely opportunity to upgrade to a much safer Sport Court at an affordable cost by purchasing used flooring from another gym.  The Heritage gym is also used as a backup location for boys practices, and with a safer court could be used to host more junior high games … thus many players and families will benefit from this upgrade.

The Warriors and Heritage are partnering to raise funds for this improvement, with an initial goal of $2500.  Some gifts have already been received from Warrior families at the end of season banquet, so momentum is well underway.

If you are willing to donate to this project, please contact Matt from the Warriors or Seth from Heritage Assembly of God, or send an e-mail to  Checks can be made payable to Heritage Assembly of God, and are tax-deductible.  Many thanks for your consideration.


Off-season Training

Coach Schrader recommends that the players emphasize running and basketball-specific activities during the off-season.  A tab will be added to this website in the near future with further instructions for players and parents.

Also, Coach Schrader is hosting off-season training on specific basketball fundamentals, to be held on Tuesdays 5:30-7:30 PM at Heritage gym.  As groups will be limited to six players, signup in advance is required.  See Coach Schrader for more details.
