SMSD Practices & Gym Information

Shawnee Mission School District Basketball Practices

Winter 2021


Eligibility Requirements

Teams requesting Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD) practice space must guarantee that 75% of their players reside within the SMSD boundaries.  As verification of residency within the school district boundaries to utilize gym space, player names and addresses will be provided to SMSD and the Shawnee Mission Basketball Council (SMBC) Commissioner.  Any team found not in compliance with the mandatory roster requirement (75% of players residing within the Shawnee Mission School District boundaries) will be immediately removed from the SMSD practice schedule and may subsequently force JCPRD to lose all SMSD practice space. The information provided on the SMSD Roster will be stored in a secure JCPRD location and will only be shared with SMSD and SMBC.


Requesting Space

  1. Click Here to register your team for league play and then register for SMSD practices. When registering for practice space, you will be able to mark your top choices in day, time and school. We suggest to use the chart below to determine which gyms are best for your team. Your team must be registered for both league play and SMSD practices by October 11 to guarantee space.
  2. Email your SMSD roster to gabe.stovall@jocogov.org. SMSD rosters must be received by October 11 to guarantee space. Rosters submitted late may result in no practice time. Rosters will be checked by the Shawnee Mission Basketball Council for accuracy.


Additional Information

Priority is provided to teams based on timeliness of registration and grade level.

There will be weeks when SMSD space is limited or restricted. Please select several choices of schools, days and times when registering for space. We try our best to request the exact space you prefer, however providing several choices informs our office of the relative area and time frame that is preferred. Our goal is also to keep practices consistent however JCPRD may not be assigned the same space each week.  

Cancellations and rescheduling may occur due to circumstances outside of JCPRD control.  We will do our best to accommodate your team when changes occur.
