The Kansas Players Elite 5th grade AAU basketball team played in the Kansas City Keys 15th Annual Basketball Invitational Tournament this past weekend. Our boys ended up winning the championship in the fifth grade division. You can look here for a summary of our weekend.
Over the years, the KC Keys tournament has become one of the premier basketball events in the Kansas City Metro area. It’s run by the Kansas City Keys, an organization dedicated to developing youth in the KC area.
As part of their program, the Keys’ consistently field very competitve boys’ and girls’ basketball teams in all age groups, and they hold several highly regarded tournaments throughout the year, which I’d definitely recommend to competitive tournament teams looking for a challenge. Overall, the quality of the competition at the Keys tournaments is very good, with several of the teams entered per age division playing basketball at a very high level. So, no matter how good you think your team is, you’ll probably find a challenger at the Keys Tournament.
The Keys Tournament games are played in several different venues around the Kansas City metro area, and the management of the tournament ensures that those venues are all pretty friendly. The tournament definitely has a down-home feel because the Keys organization pulls together their local basketball family and friends to work their tournaments.
