Youth football teaches kids accountability, leadership, and positive sportsmanship. Every position has a purpose and to execute a play successfully, each player needs to fulfill their responsibility, while working together. This is a skill that’s valuable both on and off the field.

Practices will start the first week of August and the first game will be on September 10. The fall season is made up of eight weeks with games hosted at South Lakes Sports Complex, a sixteen-field facility (5300 S. Meridian Ave.). Parents can plan on two-three weekly practices and a game on Saturdays.

For the second year in a row, we are excited to bring you Torchy’s Player of the Game! Every week a Player of the Game is chosen thanks to our sponsor Torchy’s. Wichita Park & Recreation spotlights a game each week, where two players will be chosen as the player of the game. Each player is selected by the opposing team coach. They choose the athlete that worked hard on the field, demonstrated good sportsmanship and teamwork during the game. Athletes receive a congratulatory letter and a gift card to Torchy’s to enjoy tacos with the family after the game.
