As a consumer, I truly hate to write bad reviews about a facility, but this is completely warranted. This facility is need of some serious updates. The lighting is extremely dim, the restrooms are “go at your own risk”, Court 4 has dead spots everywhere and the rims are not 10 feet (our coaches measured and showed someone, they didn’t do anything about it), it states no profanity, yet it’s routinely used and heard by players and refs, sadly, but nothing changes. Unfortunately, there are no other facilities around, at least until 2021, I think. When the Hamilton facilities are completed, this place will lose all credibility and maybe they already know it. This would explain why it continues to spiral downhill. In any case, the cost of entry is $7/person, each day with kids 17 and under free (thank goodness). Moreover, the Kingdom considers themselves AAU; however, the facility, nor the teams are sanctioned by AAU. It’s even written on their jersey’s they are AAU, but they aren’t sanctioned. We discovered this when our team entered an AAU sanctioned event and needed to fill out additional paperwork and pay the required fees to be considered an AAU Team. Also, the Kingdom Sports Center breaks copyright infringement laws by utilizing former NBA players, super hero logos, and much more to advertise their events. I’m not sure how this is legal and goes unpunished. I’m assuming because they are too small and stay under the radar, since they aren’t an AAU sanctioned facility. Anyway, I could go on but I’ve said enough about it. In the end, I’ll go watch my child play here and enjoy the game, despite it all. My wish would be to utilize some of the revenue for upkeep of the facilities. I would not recommend a team signing up to play at Kingdom, unless it’s a last resort.

We have visited the Kingdom Sports Center several times but it seems that it is really in need of some TLC! The restrooms are seriously dirty and smelly! The floors were sticky and covered with water? (I kept telling myself it was water) They charge $15 per adult to enter regardless of time of day or the number of games you plan to watch. For us we arrived at 3:00 watched one game and for 2 adults it was $30. What are you doing with the funds? Not paying for upkeep? I think that if there was anything like it nearby it would probably hurt the Kingdom business. Just my opinion

I have come here for many AAU tournaments and open gyms. Always tons of teams in the tournaments. Could be a little nicer cosmetically but overall a nice place.

My daughter played in some tournaments held at Kingdom, it's a nice facility. The concession stand is fair priced and good food. Basketball courts are nice, plenty of room for parents and fans to watch.

My son has been going to Kingdom Sports Center for two years. We have gone out on a branch financially for him to be on their "like AAU" basketball league, numerous private lessons, and many other added charges that are not disclosed until after you pay for your child to participate in their "like AAU" league. The league was advertised and talked up by the owners on how it was an honor to make their Spring league. Now I know that all they want is your money. They fail to advertise the they already have teams picked and that the children that try out are pretty much filling in the blank spaces to make the team complete. They also advertise that they have paid coaches. That would be great if the paid coach that my son had actually knew anything about the sport. He went against everything Air Kev taught my son and did nothing but confuse him and threaten that he would be sitting on the bench if he didn't do what he said. He even told my son to stop shooting the ball or he would be benched! Not only was it very expensive for my son to play on this "like AAU" team, they failed to mention before you paid the fees that you would also have to pay to watch your child play. We had to pay five dollars every single time my son played. This equated to roughly $230 for the season on top of the $460 I paid for him to play on his team (Which might I add they only one one game out of about 25). I can say that my son has been coached by Air Kev for over a year and he has made him a stronger more confident player. Air Kev is the best thing that KIngdom Sports Center has going for them, because their customer service is the poorest I have experienced. I contacted the front desk about the disappointment my son and us as parents experienced with the team that he was on and Debbie, the owner's wife, blunty said that no one else on the team has complained and that I must be a complainer. This is far from the truth, but spending thousands of dollars at this facility I did feel the need to voice my frustration in the situation. When a team is losing consistently by 30-40 points a game there is an issue - whether or not anyone else complains is besides the point. This "like AAU" league is just that. Its was a very expensive lesson for my family and we will not be supporting or participating in Kingdom Sports Center again. Although the facility is decent and the courts are acceptible, the bathrooms are disgusting and I use them as a last resort. If I am spending five dollars a game to get in I would at least expect a clean restroom and a place to park.
