about us

Shots with Patience Prep is a sports specific preparatory school located on Long Island, NY. Their aim is to help young men achieve a quality education and an elite level athletic experience at an affordable cost. The program has its roots in the Team Underrated Basketball Academy. The program is led by Team Underrated director Andre Edwards, a valuable community member and a staple in the Long Island tapestry of AAU basketball. Over the years, Coach Edwards has given countless student-athletes the platform to show off their basketball powers and procure college scholarships. The mentality behind his actions is “Everything we do now doesn’t matter, but what matters is what’s at the end of the finish line.” Where “the finish line” is landing a spot on a college team. Affectionately known as “Dre”, Coach Edwards not only gets his athletes looks from the college coaches, he takes them to the schools in his own car, to make sure that they have successful visits. For his associate coach, Coach Edwards landed David Moses who runs his own NY Select Academy AAU program. Shots With Patience Prep is on the rise in the Tri state area. They have a great mix of quality prospects who have been turning heads every time they touch the floor. The front line players are as big and skilled as most high level prep school programs. The guard play has been comparable to most of the NEPSAC level programs. The team plays a highly competitive schedule against many top programs in order to maximize their recruiting potential. That includes co-hosting their own February Fallout event. Their home games are played at The Mitchell Athletic Complex.
