What grade levels do you support?
KBA supports boys and girls in 2nd through 6th grade.
When does the season begin and end?
The season will begin the first week of December and end around the 3rd week of February, followed by an end of year tournament.
What levels are available for players?
Kings offers a competitive team(s) for boys and girls grades 3-6th and recreational teams for grades 2-6th. The number of players registered and overall talent of the kids will determine how many competitive teams will exist for each group.
How does team placement work? What are the competitive tryouts about?
First off, every player that registers for KBA will make a team. There are two types of teams - recreational and competitive. Each grade starting at 3rd generally has one competitive team that plays in a higher level league. Competitive teams are formed as part of a tryout process after the preseason assessment. Rec team players are drafted by the team of coaches using Preseason Assessment scores to help establish balanced teams. The draft occurs shortly before the start of practices.
What is the commitment level when you play for KBA?
Rec Teams - 1 practice a week and one game (either Saturday or Sunday). Competitive teams - 2 practices per week and 2 games per weekend (typically 1 Saturday and Sunday)
Kings Basketball Association (KBA) provides every child in 2nd-6th grade within the Kings Local School District the opportunity to play basketball.
