First, we provide a world-class indoor sports facility to the Kansas City area. The facility is primarily occupied by the Drive5 Basketball Academy and Tournaments, KC Run GMC (the top 15U, 16U, and 17U players from Kansas and surrounding states), as well as home to PVA Volleyball, All In Sports, and College Park Physical Therapy. Throughout the year, you will also find other indoor sporting events, such as Futsal and gymnastics tournaments.

Second, we offer basketball training and events in our facility that provide youth athletes in the KC metro area with great competition and high quality instruction in a positive environment. We offer individual memberships that provide unlimited skills training, team placement, and competition for youth players. For existing teams, we offer Drive5 Partnerships that allows teams to take advantage of the resources at the Drive5 Sports Center, including weekly practice times, free entry into tournaments, and unlimited skills sessions for players.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you hold try-outs for Drive5?

    All Drive5 Members are automatically eligible to play on a Drive5 team, however, we do hold periodic "try outs" to determine the best team placement for every player. Non-Drive5 members are also welcome to attend try outs, but will need to have an active Drive5 membership in place before they can be placed on a Drive5 team. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive information about try out dates.

  • My child is already on a team, so how and why would we get involved with Drive5?

    Drive5 offers benefits for all players and teams. All players are encouraged to consider a membership at Drive5, regardless of team affiliation. Although many players participate on competing teams outside of the academy, they are able to form friendships and enjoy a sense of community in the academy. It is absolutely invaluable for kids to be around other players who have similar goals and attitudes, and can push each other to improve and compete at their personal bests. Please also encourage your child's coach to take a look at our Partner Team benefits to see how your child's team can take advantage of all the resources and benefits that Drive5 has to offer.

  • My child doesn't have a team, but we want to be involved with Drive5. What do we do now?

    Simply enroll your child as a member at Drive5! Your child will be provided with everything he or she needs for complete development as a basketball player, including unlimited skills sessions with USA Basketball Certified coaches, eligibility to play on a Drive5 team and compete in tournaments, and unlimited access to open practice courts at Drive5 Sports Center.

  • I'm a coach who wants to find good competition for my team, and practice with them during the week. Is Drive5 for me?

    Check out our Drive5 Partner Team option... it was created with you in mind! You'll get so many benefits, including free weekly practice time, free entry into Drive5 tournaments, and unlimited skills sessions for your players.

  • My team isn't very experienced - will we be in over our heads at Drive5 Tournaments?

    Drive5 tournaments offer divisions for teams of all experience levels, so your team will get a chance to play against an appropriate level of competition. We offer a Division 1 (typically elite, club level teams), Division 2 (typically higher level recreation level or intermediate club teams), and Division 3 (typically very new club, or beginner recreation level teams) in every age group, so your team can play against the best level of competition for them.
