Mentality Basketball is a basketball program for children 5-19 years of age. With an increasing number players, we are on track to grow substantially for summer 2018.
Michael Watson, the founder of Mentality has been the leading youth athletes in basketball developmental programs for some time now. Michael Watson is highly regarded as one of the best athletes to ever come out of Kansas City, Missouri. As a 4-sport lettermen in high school (Basketball, Football, Baseball, Track & Field), his passion for sports was undeniable. As an All City, District, and State performer for Central High School, Michael led his basketball team to a 2nd place finish at the 1999 Class 4A Missouri State High School Championships. Watson received over 40 college scholarship offers to play collegiate basketball and football, but chose to stay home and to play for the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC).
Mentality’s mission is to use the great sport of Basketball and it’s team concepts to help children stay in school, work hard at all they do in life, promote team work and community participation, and to help advance their education by help placing them in College and University around the Country.
