Craig Veselik
Founder & Director
IBA was created in 2003 by Naperville-area native Craig Veselik.

His vision was to establish a basketball program for the youth of Illinois. Having been involved in youth athletics in Illinois for over 15 years, Coach Veselik has helped hundreds of kids go on to play collegiately.

Over the years, he has taught and mentored various division 1 athletes and helped build them not only as players but also as citizens. Coach Veselik, with his hands on approach and knowledge of basketball, has been one of the most consistent and successful coaches around.

He has won AAU State Titles on both the boys and girls sides and has numerous national titles to his credit.
