1st-2nd Grade Advanced 5-on-5

The largest youth basketball program in the Kansas City area that caters to teams, individuals and all levels of play.   Boys play on Saturdays and/or Sundays while the girls have traditionally played on Friday evenings. Girls coaches may request Saturday/Sunday games as registration allows. All teams are grade-based not age-based.

Players on teams with 10 or fewer participants are required to play a minimum of 10 minutes per game. Players on teams of 11 or more are required to play 8 minutes per game.

Late Registration Process

Are you already on a coaches/team roster (have a team)


Register through our wait list and you will be notified when you have been activated and will be placed on your team roster.  An email will be automatically generated to let you know that you have been placed on the team and can now pay your registration fee.  After you register on the waitlist, it could take up to 48 hours for us to update rosters.  


Don’t have a team, but would like to play this winter


Register through our wait list and you will be notified as soon as we find a team that fits with your athlete.  All participants who registered before the deadline will be placed on teams before we start placing children from the waitlist.  If your child is placed, you will be notified via email that you can now complete your registration payment to officially be listed on a roster.  If for some reason we cannot find your child a team, we will notify you via email by October 30.  We do our best to place everyone on a team but cannot guarantee it.
