As a reminder, Legends Sports Photography offers several popular incentives to make it worthwhile to have your team photographed by Legends.
  • Legends Sports Photography is a league sponsor and gives back financially to N.K.C.A. when you participate in photos with our company.
  • Each team who has 8 or more athletes per team ordering photos receives:.
     - One FREEHead Coach 5x7 Team Print per team.
  • All orders are returned to the athletes& coaches via postal mail, direct to their homes.
  • We offer 10% ACTIVE MILITARY DISCOUNTto participants– Just show your MILITARY ID on photo day.
  1. Book your photo day & let your athletes and parents know about photo day as soon as possible.
  2. Don’t worry about a missing player or coach. Any day you schedule photos someone may have a conflict. Fact: 95% of teams take photos with someone missing because families are overloaded with activities. Just do your bestand go with the majority of athletes and coaches who can be there the day and time you select.
  3. Be sure to forward the emailed photo order forms (190M)at least a week in advance of your photo date. Payment is due inside the forms before photos are taken. If parents fill out the forms and include payment ahead of arriving at the photo location, this will save your entire team from waiting while the forms are being filled out.
  1. Coach, we need you to arrive 5 minutes ahead of your appointment to fill out paperwork. Ask your team to come 5 minutes early, so they are on time. The trick to an easy photo day is having all the athletes and coaches there on time. If the team is on time, with order forms ready to go…your photo day stays on time.
  2. Delivery…Photos are mailed directly to each athlete approximately 3-4 weeks after picture day.
The local staff of Legends Sports Photography, thank you for supporting our small local business, and we look forward to seeing you, and serving you on your specific picture day and time.

PCA - Do You Dare To Chill?

by posted 02/27/2014

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 73rd year, established in 1945, serving the northland.  Today, the league is nearly 300 teams strong (another 180 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
for many years to come.
