Welcome to the Kelowna Minor Football Association! KMFA operates flag and tackle football leagues from U10 to U18 for youth in the Central Okanagan. Football teaches cooperation and team work, confidence, social skills and respect for others. Football is a great form of exercise and it helps to improve and develop skills like throwing, catching, running, kicking, agility and coordination.
Kelowna Minor Football has a rich history serving the youth in Kelowna, West Kelowna and all surrounding communities with a positive and rewarding experience playing football.
Football is a fun and challenging sport; the game demands the best from each participant for the achievement of a common goal, while teaching physical, mental and social skills your child will benefit from in everyday life. Playing football will help develop and improve physical skills like running, throwing, catching, kicking, agility and coordination in an environment that fosters teamwork, confidence, respect for others, and sportsmanship.
KMFA is dedicated to the promotion of youth football in our community. Check back often to learn more about upcoming camps, flag and tackle registration, or just football news in general!

Don’t just cheer, volunteer! KMFA would not exist without a variety of hardworking volunteers who lend their time as the Board of Directors, coordinators, coaches and managers, to name just a few roles. We are always looking for more help to support and grow minor football in the community for our kids. If you have talents and time to offer, experienced or not, please pitch in and lend a hand.
On game days, for both flag and tackle seasons, there are specific jobs that parents and caregivers can help with such as field set ups, clean up, commissioner/play counter, and stick crew. Reach out to your child’s coach or our Director of Volunteers to let us know how you would like to help. We are always grateful for the additional hands and this allows your child’s coaches to focus on preparing their team for play.
If you have other talents or great ideas that you think would benefit KMFA as a whole, please contact the Board of Directors and share with us. We are working hard to grow our football community for the kids and welcome fresh ideas.
