Warrior Hoops was founded in April 2004. It started with one 8th grade boys’ team. The 8th grade Warriors ended their inaugural competitive league and tournament schedule extremely successfully in November 2005 and ranked #1 in the nation under the USSSA rating system. The rapid success of the Warriors has been broadcast throughout the states of Kansas, Missouri and the country as we strive to be known as a nationally ranked program. Our early success has opened the door for tremendous growth. In the years since, we have added girls and boys teams ranging from 3rd grade to seniors in high school. Our teams are family-oriented, fundamentals focused and players return back each season. Despite our growth, our goals remain the same, to make a positive difference in the lives of young people in the Kansas City area through a faith-based basketball program. By the conclusion of our 2014 season, Warrior Hoops grew to over 120 youth. Our goal for 2015 is to host 20 teams with over 200 youth.
Warrior Hoops emphasizes a faith-based lifestyle, requires a minimum GPA of 2.5, teaches leadership and/or life-skills, and stresses the hardcore fundamentals of basketball. We teach our participants respect and appreciation for God, their parents, our country, the game of basketball, and themselves. We encourage the development of leadership principles and create an environment that fosters a strong work ethic both on and off the court. We want our participants to impact their peers and their communities through strong positive influence reflecting traditional core values.
Warrior Hoops is a faith-based youth basketball organization. It promotes basketball as the principal vehicle to help youth realize their GOD-given potential. Our youth are exhorted to reach for the stars due to our teaching the fundamentals of basketball, developing their innate leadership skills, mentoring respect for self/others, and fostering accountability to GOD, self and others. It is impossible for anyone who is looking forward and upward to contemplate past distresses, deficiencies and disappointments. This progressive thinking places our participants on a systematized path of not only being a great team of basketball players but more significantly, being well rounded assets in the homes, schools, jobs and communities where GOD has placed them.
