Our typical season begins with evaluations in mid-September. Practices will begin the week after MEA (mid-October) with tournament play starting in November. All teams will practice two nights per week with some coaches opting for three nights. There are no games during the week. Teams will play a minimum of five tournaments per season. The season will round out with the MYAS Grade State tournament the first weekend in March.
Player fees per season ranges from $225-$350 depending on the age of the player. Fees cover practice gym time, uniforms (rental deposit required), tournament entry fees. There may be an additional coaches fees if a parent volunteer coach is not provided. We strive to work with families to make KGTBA affordable for all players and offer payment arrangements.
