Kings of the Court

Kings of the Court is a traveling basketball team that plays in tournaments and leagues throughout the metro area and tournaments outside of Minnesota.

The Kings of the Court team philosophy is to instill in players the ability to use the gifts God has given them not only to succeed in basketball but also in life. They begin and end every practice and game with a team prayer led by either players or coaches. They also build team unity through activities such as eating out, attending sporting events and other outings together that strengthen interpersonal relationships, giving players a chance to get to know one another off the court.

Midnight Basketball

Midnight Basketball, one of Hospitality House’s longest running programs. It is the only Hospitality House athletic program where participation is not limited to children.

Held every Friday evening from 7 p.m. to 12 .a.m., Midnight Basketball is open to inner city males ages 13-18, providing them with an energizing alternative to a night on the streets. This weekly event offers friendship and hope where there has often been little and has proven to enrich misplaced lives, and re-direct young people away from an environment of guns, drugs, and the criminal justice system.

The Midnight Basketball program is endorsed by community law enforcement and local churches for it’s ability to provide a venue for at-risk males to be off the street at a crucial time when violence typically occurs.
