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 72nd year, established in 1945, serving the northland. Today, the league is nearly 250 teams strong (another 160 teams in the fall) 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
