YKD focuses on scheduling/participating in weekend tournaments in North and South Carolina. We try to limit the travel time to a scheduled tournament to no longer than a 2-hr drive.
Do we travel?
Yes, our team goals are to qualify for regional and national tournaments. These larger regional and national tournaments have been held in locations such as Tennessee, Virginia, and Florida. A national tournament, for example, could be a 3-5 day/night event during the month of June.
How often is practice?
Practice is key to player development and team relationships. The individual team coaches will determine practice frequency. A player can expect to practice 2-3 days/week. A practice session could run 1 to 2 hours.
Are there registration fees?
Yes, there is a registration fee for the travel basketball teams. The exact team fees will be shared following player evaluations and team assignment. A ballpark fee range is $300 - $400 for the travel season. This fee includes local facility rentals, tournaments entry costs, and team equipment.
Can I volunteer?
The YKD Kings organization is always looking for coaches and mentors. Fresh voices and experiences help shape the future of the youth our organization supports.
