2024 Season Cancellation

Breaking bad news is never easy. The Kennewick Grid Kids Board of Directors has concluded that it is necessary to cancel the 2024 Fall Season. This decision was not taken lightly.

At the time of this decision, our enrollment numbers were tracking at around a 40% participation rate compared to what we need to run a season. That is about 50% below where we need to be at the beginning of July. There is a potential that we could have had a mass influx of signups to bridge that gap, but we wanted to give all of our kids a chance to explore other avenues.

For those that have already signed up, refunds have already started to be processed. You should see them appear within days. Please email league officials if you have any issues or questions.

Kennewick Grid Kids will evaluate holding a 2025 season. Support and desire for an offering will come from the community. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see your support to volunteer for such an opportunity.

Your children have several options for football related activities this fall. The City of Kennewick and Richland as well as the Boys and Girls Club of Benton/Franklin Counties offer Flag Football for younger kids. Every middle school in the area offers 7th and 8th grade football. Columbia Basin Youth Football also offers a variety of offerings depending on your geographical location and high school boundary that you live in.

It's never easy to cancel a season. Our covid season of 2020 taught us that our constituents were faithful and strong willed and stuck by KGK. We hope to see that continued support in the future. Please support our children in the community at this time. There is going to be a flood of participants to other offerings, and we would hate to see any child left behind that wants to play this great game or cheer them on.

We want to send out a special thank you to all of our volunteers so far this year and all in the past. Your time and effort given to this association is what keeps this going. Without you, this would not be possible.

Good luck to all of our children of KGK. We will miss your smiling faces this fall.

Thank you,

Your 2024 KGK Board of Directors
