In 2009, Andrew Homoly, a long time youth sports coach, discovered there was a huge need for sports teams for inner city girls. Despite the huge geographic area of Kansas City’s East Side, there were just a few scattered opportunities available. Andrew decided to found the X-Plosion, a 100% free 4th grade girls youth basketball team (sponsored by Homoly Construction) for any girls in the KCMO school district. Andrew distributed flyers to the local schools and community leaders, offering full scholarships to each player selected for the team. Thirty girls attended tryouts and ten were awarded team membership. The challenges were many, but were met through the dedication of Andrew, the team family members, and the players themselves. Most of the team had never before played in an organized sport. The girls were taught the value of accountability, reliability and other life skills in addition to basketball skills. Discussions were held about “where” they wanted to go to college and not “if”. Family members looked on, cheered, provided transportation and motivation. Their daughters put in hours of hard-work and tremendous effort to become a competitive team, and the friendships established between teammates reinforced the values of commitment and dependability. Andrew personally coached the team for the first year and then brought in strong women mentors to coach the girls in subsequent years. Many thanks to Lauren Kohn, Exselsa Cartwright, and Ivy Lynch-Shaw for donating their time to this wonderful group of girls. Watch this video to see the reward and excitement of the team's FIRST WIN! This first group of girls have now entered various high schools throughout KCMO and many have made their school’s varsity squad! Here is a photo of three of the girls from University Academy.
We have coached/assisted with more than three dozen youth sports programs for baseball, softball, basketball, flag football and track
