Where are the courts?

Due to ongoing streetcar construction, parking is subject to change. The main parking area for the courts is the small lot at the intersection of Riverfront Drive and Berkley Parkway (northwest of Union apartments). If the sidewalk near this lot is closed, please use the alternative parking options and pathways to access the courts. More parking info here.

You can exit off I70/I35 and go north through the River Market or exit off I29 and go west past the stadiums. Get directions here.

KC Crew started in 2012 as an adult sports league and events company that has now delivered amazing experiences to over 100,000 people. Learn more here.

KC Crew partnered with Port KC in 2016 to build 6 sand volleyball courts to help increase park use on the Riverfront. 7 years later Bar K, apartments and a women’s soccer stadium are now on the riverfront. After successfully running adult sand volleyball leagues and events for over 30,000 people we rebuilt the courts so the KC Current stadium could be built and now we are ready to take it to the masses.
