Our coaches are integral to the mission of KC Premiere Basketball. The standard is the highest of high in representing our program and teams, regardless of age or gender. We expect our coaches to be:
• ORGANIZED with team/player information and making the experience for your team families structured.
• PROFESSIONAL with your technique, mannerisms, behavior, and attire - at ALL TIMES during KCP functions.
• COMMUNICATIVE with your team members by being proactive, transparent, and making the process "easy".
• COMPETENT with basketball skills and philosophies - team and individual development.
• PRIDEFUL with your craft of coaching.
Our coaches goal is to get the best out of their kids and teams, not just by winning games, but by building character, social skills and lessons kids will be able to carry onward in future endeavors.
GAMESOur teams play against other competitive club teams in the KC Metro. We play in our sponsored KC Premiere league year-round (Sundays), as well as 1-2 tournaments per month (either KC Premiere tournaments or other local/regional tournaments hosted by other organizations).
Both our boys and girls teams typically play at least once a weekend (league and/or tournament). Each team/grade level varies on tournament participation. Our more competitive teams will participate in more tournaments.
We sponsor both boys and girls competitive teams. Our players are from all over the KC Metro. We have teams for the following:
Boys, 3rd-11th (grades 8-11th do not participate during MS/HS season)Girls, 3rd-7th
PRACTICESBoth our boys and girls teams practice either in Shawnee Mission School District or Park Hill School District locations (depending on which location is closer to you). Practices are at least once a week, depending on which location. Nights of practice fluctuate between a combination of gym, coach, and players availability.
Our "south" teams practice mostly in Shawnee Mission and consist of kids mostly from around the Shawnee Mission area. Our "north" teams practice mostly in Park Hill and consist of kids mostly from around the Northland area.
We play basketball year-round. The breakdown of our seasons are typically as follows:
Fall (September-October)Winter (November-February)Spring/Summer (March-July)
Prior to each session, we hold tryouts for both current and new participants looking to play with us. We do make cuts. For those that make one of our teams, we ask that each participant commits to the season they are trying out for. It is possible that spots on teams are still available even after tryouts.
