Youth Travel & Flag Football registration is open online. Register today!
June 17th – 20th 9:00am – 12:00pm
Here’s a chance to get a jump-start on your competition!
The Division III State Champion Kenston Football coaches and players will be teaching fundamentals and skills, as well as sharing philosophies on all aspects of the game.
Players will increase their knowledge of the game, improve their speed and agility, and have fun at the same time.
Players will be divided according to age, size, and skill level. Each session will include instruction time on different positions and the skills required playing and improving on various aspects of the game.
Players will end each session with a pick-up touch game to reinforce skills learned that day.
NOTE: This is a non-equipment, non contact camp. Players can provide their own mouthpieces for their safety. Football shoes are allowed. Please bring a water bottle and tennis shoes.
Register by June 10 to be guaranteed a t-shirt.
Kenston youth football is in immediate need for volunteers for their Sept. 30th home games. Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time to help out our awesome youth football concessions coordinators!

Also, if this is the first year that your son is playing tackle football, please make sure that you upload his birth certificate and report card as indicated in the previous email. The deadline for doing so is this Saturday, 8/18. However, it is recommended that you do not wait until the last minute, as several people have been encountering technology issues.
Finally, the league game schedule will be released sometime this week. Once it is released, we will schedule the scrimmages for this Sunday.
