About

Indiana Primetime Sports, a youth sports organization, was developed by two friends who had an idea to create sports programs that would be valuable and fun for children.   Brandon Lafferman and Ryan Cole graduated from Butler University in 2007 where they studied Physical Education and Health.  During their college years, they spent numerous hours discussing the importance of youth sports and the impact it has on a child’s physical, mental, and social development.  As they became more involved in teaching and coaching in the Indianapolis area, they realized that many young athletes in the local communities could benefit from their vision.  Through their own youth sports experiences and teaching backgrounds, they set out to provide children of all skill levels with a high-quality athletic experience that would be unmatched.  This is how Indiana Primetime Sports came to life!
