If you have more than one player in the tackle program, you can have all of your players come for their fitting on one night, there is no need to come on multiple nights. Unless of course that’s of interest to you, then by all means do so because we are fun people to hang around. Ha!
Please have your player wear athletic shorts so they can slip football pants over them for their fitting.
Please bring your players physical and birth certificate if necessary. Some players may already have a birth certificate on file.

This is a great camp run by Northern Illinois University.
Several KYFL members attended the camp last year and had a blast!
Don't forget to register for the 2015 Skillz and Drillz Clinic!!
Clinic will run 9:00am - 11:30am Monday, June 15 - Friday, June 19.
The Clinic is open to all boys and girls ages 7 - 11 (12 if you will be entering 6th grade this Fall).
Cost of the camp is $75 per attendee with all proceeds going back into the KYFL program for equipment and improvements.
As always, all attendees will receive a clinic tee shirt (must register by May 17, 2015 to be guaranteed a tee shirt), at least four awards will be given out daily, and most importantly, eight attendees will be awarded the hard hat award!
If you plan on attending the basketball camp at the high school during this week, no problem! Our clinic is on the school grounds and you can be excused a little early on those days (please let Gary Bell know ahead of time if you need to leave early for basketball camp).
The current Kaneland High School football staff and players will be our coaches. What a great way for our little Knights to see what they can become with hard work and dedication!
Registration opens March 1, 2015. Just click on the registration link and go to the 2015 Skillz and Drillz registration.
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.
