MOKAN teams have two 80-minute practices per week on Monday thru Thursday evenings. Teams will play two weekends a month, either in a tournament or a league. Weekends that tournaments or league games take place will be communicated well in advance. MOKAN teams play at least 5 games per month.
Practice & Tournament Locations
A large majority of the tournaments and leagues that our teams play in are located within the Kansas City-Metro area. MOKAN, on occasion, offers its youth teams the opportunity to travel out of town for a tournament. MOKAN primarily practices in the Shawnee Mission School District or 68’s Inside Sports. Practices primarily take place between 6:00-9:00pm.
Youth basketball is structured into Division I (Highest Level of Youth Competition), Division II, Division III & “Recreation Basketball”. We typically have teams at each grade level at Division I, Division II and Division III competition levels. Not everyone who tries out will make a team. We try to offer as many opportunities as possible, but we can’t always accommodate everyone due to constraints on quality coaches and facilities.
Monthly player fees are $180 per month – this covers all coaching fees, tournament fees, practice time, etc. Players are required to purchase a new uniform at the start of the Fall/Winter season.
