NORMAN SCHIPPERS – President
Norman played Division I basketball at Stephen F. Austin, following a stand-out performance at Garden City (KS) Community College. He was an Academic All-American who twice led his team in scoring while shooting over 45% from the three-point area and over 85% from the free throw line. He still holds the all-time scoring record at Thomas More Prep-Marian High School (KS) – one of the top prep programs in the state.
Norman has been active in youth sports over the past 20 years – coaching teams, running and working basketball camps, organizing AAU basketball teams, and working with children on their skills development. Professionally, he ran some of North America’s largest leadership and talent consulting firms.
With Alodia Basketball Academy, Norman leveraged his background and experience to provide a unique experience for each and every athlete to improve his or her physical, mental and leadership skills. Norman’s passion for helping athletes take their game to the next level and developing the leaders for tomorrow is the mission of Alodia Basketball Academy.
