Mission Statement

To empower Kansas City's underserved youth ages 6-18 through baseball and softball, academic and social opportunities to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Description

The vision for the Kansas City Urban Youth Academy first originated with city leaders along with Dayton Moore, General Manager of the Kansas City Royals. Through the support of Major League Baseball, leaders in Kansas City and the State of Missouri, along with many generous donors, this idea became a reality with the official grand opening in March 2018. The purpose of the Academy is to provide our community's youth with a dual opportunity to develop into high-character members of society and, at the same time, learn the skills of baseball and softball.

The vision for the Academy is to become the epicenter for youth baseball and softball throughout the Midwest, beginning with the urban community and its location in the backyard of the historical 18 th & Vine District.

As an Academy, we are committed to providing a positive environment for our area youth. We will educate our players on what it means to be a "professional" while surrounding them with coaches, mentors and role models who can teach them how to play the games of baseball and softball and serve as examples of good citizenship. Through our athletic-focused training, education and character development programs, we will build a strong foundation for Academy student-athletes, based on work ethic, leadership, responsibility, accountability and moral principles.
