About KFL

KFL is based in Owensboro, KY, but we have teams in Daviess County, Hancock County, Ohio County, and McLean County. KFL stands for Kids Football League, so everything we do is based on this one question: Is it best for the kids? If the answer is yes – we will pursue it. If the answer is no – we don’t pursue it. KFL emphasizes safety, character development, academics, life lessons, community involvement and a fun environment for kids to learn the game of football. KFL players are rewarded for the academic success as much as their athletic success.

KFL is aligned with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Kidcentric Sports to implement character development and life lessons curriculum. KFL does not believe in a “Win At All Cost” approach. KFL’s coaches and key volunteers go through a National Volunteer Screening to ensure KFL kids are involved with positive role models. KFL is affiliated with USA Football and the NFL Heads Up program for accountability, additional resources and credibility. All coaches (Head and Assistant) will be trained through the NFL Heads Up Program.

KFL’s Mission:

KFL is organized for the charitable and educational purpose of supporting, fostering, perpetuating and educating youth in the playing of the game of football while providing education and leadership skills in sportsmanship, teamwork, team participation, citizenship and encouraging parental support and involvement in the activities of KFL.

KFL’s Top Values:
