Currently Kongo Basketball Club has 33 basketball teams. Kongo Basketball Club offers competitive basketball teams from 2nd grade through 9th grade. Our goal at Kongo is to develop each athlete individually and give them the skills they need to succeed in their sport. We do this by utilizing the best coaches, trainers, and skill coaches in the basketball industry. Our teams compete in competition leagues across Utah as well as in-state and out-of-state tournaments. 

Kongo Basketball Club has all teams practice two times a week. 2nd-4th grade practice two days a week at an hour each while 5th and above practice for an hour and a half each. One of those practices is dedicated to individual skill development. The other practice teams work on offensive and defensive sets as well as out of bounds plays. Our coaches are very involved in practices and games.
