our philosophy:

The KIPP:KC philosophy encourages all students in the 3rd - 12th grade to participate in our athletic program. Athletics can afford student athletes of all walks of life a positive and challenging experience that aids their overall development. 

A structured athletic program adds to that experience by providing organization, goals and team camaraderie. 

KIPP:KC mission statement will govern the efforts of the department and is a vital element of KIPP Athletics.  In the arena of athletics, the mission begins with the vision of the Athletic Director. My philosophy is rooted in providing an edifying environment for student athletes to develop academically, athletically and socially through exposure to healthy role models and working with peers who use hard work and character as their guide.
