Registration for the 2019 Season

The 2019 Kennewick Grid Kids season is upon us! We all look forward to another great season for this year. None of this is possible without the support of the City of Kennewick, volunteers, coaches, players and the many parents that support this league. Thank you!

Kennewick Grid Kids will be offering online registration again this season! You can register your player for cheerleading, tackle or flag football online. After listening to some feedback, we have also streamlined the online process once again and in-person paperwork. You will again be able to electronically sign your waiver forms this year. We are also allowing pre-registered players to start 30 minutes earlier than in-person registrations this year. We may still have a backlog at the equipment shed as we always have a shortage of volunteers that can fit equipment on athletes. Please be patient and know we are trying listen. IF YOU ARE NEW PLAYER IN 2019, you will need to bring a copy of your birth certificate for each participant in tackle football, unless you upload it online.

All information below can be found on the KGK Handouts portion of the website: http://kennewickgridkids.com/handouts/

Registration Costs

Tackle  $120 (before July 1st)
Tackle Jersey $45
Tackle Pants $20

Early bird pricing expires July 1st, 2019. After July 1st the base registration fee will be $150 for tackle football and $80 for Cheerleading.

Returning cheerleaders or tackle players only need to purchase a uniform if their current items do not fit or they need to be replaced for 2019. All new players need purchase a uniform.

Age Requirements

Participants must be 5-7 years old for flag football and 7-13 years old for tackle football as of July 1st, 2019. A parent or legal guardian must accompany the participant at the time of registration/weigh-ins. A Birth Certificate copy must be submitted to KGK at the time of registration/weigh-ins for all tackle players who did not play in a previous KGK season. No exceptions will be granted. 

NOTE: 6 yr olds that have an older sibling playing tackle must sign up for flag football. This is a change from previous years.

Cheerleading will be offered to individuals ages 5-13 years old. You may register online this season. Your cheerleader will be placed on the team with siblings playing tackle football. If you do not have a team, KGK will find you a team/squad to be placed with.

Weight Requirements

Kennewick Grid Kids tries to do everything we can to reduce the risk of serious injury while playing this game we love.  Because of that, Kennewick Grid Kids has always had a weight limit restriction.  KGK distributes its players into different squads based upon the weight limits of all the registered participants. Therefore, we may not know what squad your child will ultimately play on until the time of the new player tryouts.

KGK does institute a MAXIMUM player weight limit for all of its participants. All players must weight no more than 185 pounds at the time of registration.  If a child fails to meet the first max weight weigh-in, they will be eligible for ONE re-weigh during one of the 2019 regular registration sessions (listed below). There will be no exceptions. Pre weigh ins on KGK scales are not allowed under any circumstance.

Important Date and Times

All locations are at Eastgate Park in Kennewick. All times are subject to change. The start times listed are for pre-registered participants, in-person registrations will start approximately 30 minutes after the listed times.

GAME and PRACTICE LOCATIONS

Kennewick Grid Kids operates all games on Saturdays at Eastgate Park in Kennewick. This location, near the fairgrounds, has been the gameday location for KGK since the early 1990s. This helps to ensure that our families get to watch their young ones perform at one location all year long with no out of town travel.

Practice locations for our 6 organizations occur at a variety of different Kennewick School District properties. Most teams practice 3 days a week on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
