The Greater Kansas City Home School Association, also known as the KC East Lions, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit sports association serving the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.

KC East offers athletic programs such as baseball, softball, soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, cross country, and track and field to home-schooled boys and girls and to privately educated students at schools without these sports programs. Over 75 of our student-athletes have received college scholarships in various sports at junior colleges or at the D1, D2, and NAIA levels.

Through special arrangements with the Kansas State High School Athletic Association and its affiliates, the KC East Lions can compete against a wide range of schools. The program’s athletes play against other home school athletic organizations and private and public schools.
