Equipment Return


KYFL Parents,
Our original equipment turn in has come and gone and we are now trying to get the equipment returned as quickly as possible in an effort to get everything reconditioned for next year's players.
Each year the KYFL takes inventory of equipment, replaces, re-orders and reconditions equipment in an effort to keep our players protected and  well equipped.
We need your help to make this happen. We have added Thursday  12/3/15 from 6 until 7 pm as the last date for equipment turn in. The location is at the Equipment shed in Elburn at the Elburn Community Center.
You may feel free to coordinate a drop off at  my home or make arrangements to have someone turn your equipment in for you, either way is fine.  Again, it is vital we receive the equipment on or before 12/3/15 at 7pm.
Believe me, I understand being busy and forgetting about the equipment turn in, but this is an important part of the process for our league.
When you turn in your equipment, please include the following: 
Shoulder pads
Practice Jersey

Elburn Days Parade

Elburn Days Parade Information

Knight’s Families,

Here is the information for the 2015 Elburn Days Parade.

We will be lining up in the same spot as last year, for those of you who have participated in previous years. The details can be found below. We are number 41 in the parade route. Please have your child there no later than 4:30, it gets very crowded very quickly.

(Same spot as last year - drop off near CO-OP)

Enter on W. North St - Drop off and Line-up on GATES ST. - in the block nearest the Co-op.

Parents, you’ll turn around and EXIT NORTH ST. (Thanks!)

** Important**

Parents, I would urge you to get into town early, the streets get blocked off and things get very congested quickly. The parade coordinators are recommending you drop off your participant, park and walk up.


Parents- PLEASE make sure you meet your child at the end of the parade route.

We are trying something new this year:

We are asking each team to have the kids bring $1 ea. as a donation.  So… Flag Teams, Cheerleading Squads and all Tackle Teams are being asked to donate $1 which will be donated to local Food Pantries.

Carpooling is encouraged to the parade line-up!

Parking is available at Lions Park

This is an exciting event for the kids and an opportunity for them to have people see them in their Jersey while promoting the Kaneland Youth Football League.


See you out there and GO KNIGHTS!

As the Kaneland Youth Football League continues to evolve, we are always searching for new and innovative ways to improve upon our organization. For the past four years we have competed in the Midwest Youth Football Conference, which included teams from DeKalb, Yorkville, and Burlington. The upcoming 2015 season brings even bigger changes as the conference will add teams from Naperville (St. Raphael’s), Oswego, Plano, and Sandwich, and for the first time since its inception, MYFC will offer 7th and 8th grade football competition.

As we move into 2015 with expanded conference play, our objectives—as always—are to make greater gains from a competitive perspective against our MYFC opponents and have even more teams vie for the championship!

The structure for the 2015 season will remain relatively the same as last year. The MYFC is made up of single age groups: 8u, 9u, 10u, 11u, 7th grade, and 8th grade. Like always, 7 year olds will play with the 8u teams. Also, like last season, we should have at least two flights of teams per age level: a black flight and a white flight, if our registration continues to grow.  One big change for our families in 2015, however, is that based on MYFC changes, there is no sibling flight. We will have similar rules of play in terms of weight limits, based on conference regulations. While the final weight limits have not yet been finalized by the conference, they will be approximately the same as last season’s weight restrictions. For further rules of play, please see the MYFC website.

Our Flag program is for 5 & 6 year olds. This program is structured as an in-house flag football program. Our athletes will learn the Kaneland football terminology and run designed plays which are similar to those run by our tackle program. By competing in the KYFL Flag Football program, our athletes will learn the game in the Kaneland tradition, which will allow for a smoother transition to tackle football in the years to come.

All KYFL teams will be chosen the same way we have done in the past to guarantee parity between the teams. There are no tryouts, and there are no cuts.

Overall, it is our hope to capture the spirit of an in-house league which emphasizes play time and development, and still give every child the opportunity of a “travel” experience. Each team will have a minimum of 8 games. At the end of regular season games, we will have playoffs and a “Super Bowl” for those teams competing in the MYFC.
