NKCA Baseball Community,

Due to the outbreak and the rapidly evolving circumstances, our goal is to keep our members updated as we receive new information from local, state and federal agencies.

At this point, Kansas City Park and Recreation Department in conjunction with local, state and federal guidelines, has suspended activity at their parks for gatherings of 10 or more people until May 15th.  NKCA Baseball will follow the same guidelines.  AJ Wilson, Waterwell Park and Platte Purchase Park will be closed until May 15th.  NKC Schools currently has their facilities closed through 4/3.  If any dates changes happen within the school district, we will provide additional communication.

Our plan and hope is to begin our season on May 15th unless we hear otherwise from local, state, and federal agencies.  Below is a list of changes with dates along with items you can expect from NKCA Baseball...

  • The FSpL HS program that was scheduled to start on 4/6 has been canceled.
  • The 1st two tournaments of the year (Spring Clash and KC TBones Spring Dinger) have been canceled.
  • 6U - 14U Regular Spring Season to begin on 5/15 with new post season tournament date of 7/17
    • Division alignments draft versions to be made and released to coaches around 4/5
    • Coaches need to submit any schedule conflicts via the conflict form (found under the Online Forms tab) no later than 4/15
    • Team registrations have been extended to 4/20
    • Player registration due dates have been extended to 4/20
    • A target date for schedules released is set for 5/3
  • Federal HS Summer program to begin on schedule which set for 6/1
    • Player registration due dates has been set for 5/21

Thank you for being members of NKCA Baseball.  We are as anxious as anyone is to play baseball and see the players on the field.  We will continue to stay close to the issue and provide additional updates as necessary.

NKCA Baseball Corona Virus Statement
by posted 03/12/2020

NKCA Baseball Community,

As all of you are aware, our country is undergoing a medical crisis.  The emergence of the novel corona virus or COVID-19 is causing a serious disruption in our country.  This is a rapidly evolving situation.  NKCA Baseball will be closely monitoring and following federal, state, and local guidelines.

The CDC has published guidelines regarding hygiene, hand washing, hydration and more.  Here is a link to their website CDC.  Above all, use good judgment.  Your health and the health of the community is important.

As our season does not start for another month with the Spring Clash tournament on 4/13, then the regular season on 4/27, we are hopeful and planning on playing without suspending/canceling/delaying any of our events or season.  We are continuing to monitor the situation closely.

The NKCA Baseball League is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation serving the youth of our community since 1945.

The NKCA Baseball League is now in its 75th year, established in 1945, serving the northland.  Today, the league more than 400 teams strong with young athletes from all over the Greater Kansas City Area.  

Our programs cover all levels of play, for age groups 6U to 19U, Spring and Fall.  Players at 6U have the opportunity to play in TBall, Coach Pitch, or Machine Pitch.  At 7U and 8U they move to Machine Pitch.  At 9U, we begin kid pitch and continue to develop their talents through high school age.

We provide a great venue for players, playing on age specific fields.  For teams, they can count on our league for the best field conditions north of the river, many of the administration functions such as registration and a robust web notification system.  Our umpires go through a comprehensive umpire training program that includes classroom and field experience.

Our focus continues to be on the development of local athletes, increasing skills that include sportsmanship and team work.

We look forward to serving the northland youth and their families
for many years to come.
