MLB KCUYA Traveling Team Opportunities
by posted 01/23/2019

In 2018, the KCUYA partnered with the Support Towards Inner City Kids (STICKS) program in efforts to help provide resources for more than 75 inner city youth each year who otherwise would have limited opportunities to prepare for competitive, collegiate, or professional baseball or softball.

STICKS will serve to break down financial and competitive hurdles for players falling within 9U, 11U, 13U, 15U, and 17U levels while developing character driven leaders.   

KCUYA will educate STICKS athletes 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 on a competitive level and serve as examples of good citizenship.
