KC MLB Urban Youth Academy

As an Academy, we are committed to providing a positive environment for our area youth. We will educate our players on what it means to be a "professional" while surrounding them with coaches, mentors, and role models who can teach them how to play the games of baseball and softball and serve as examples of good citizenship.

Through our athletic-focused training, education, and character development programs, we will build a strong foundation for Academy student-athletes, based on work ethic, leadership, responsibility, accountability, and moral principles. This foundation will allow Academy student-athletes to acquire that unwavering strength of purpose that is the keynote of all individual success.
