Any young athlete who desires to play basketball, we have a spot for you. We are developing teams in all age groups from 8 to 17. We are also in need of dedicated coaches to help develop these young athletes. For registration information click below.


More Than Athletes is more than just a sports program. We’re serious about education. We want to meld them into one fantastic experience.

A study conducted by the University of Kansas analyzed academic performance of athletes and non-athletes shows that participation in interscholastic athletics is often associated with better educational outcomes.



More Than Athletes’ Basketball program is somewhat different from other clubs and programs you may have encountered in the past


Hanging out. Doing life together.

Community building. It’s one of the pillars of the More Than Athletes philosophy.

Friends and Family,

When it comes to a day with great weather, great friends, and an exciting vision, it was all wrapped up (and successfully came together) all in one day. So many people gave so much of themselves to make it a great day for so many people. The thing that pulled us all together was a desire to make a difference for kids.

Kansas City is getting behind a vision to offer more and explain to our kids to “Be More” than just athletes. We just needed a day to celebrate, and celebrate we did! Great food, bounce houses, and basketball were just some of the highlights of an overall great day. Thank you to all who made it a part of your day and this summer we will reconvene for another Family Fun Day that promises to be just as much fun as the first!
