The Kemptville Minor Football Club is home to the Kemptville Jaguars. The upcoming 2017 season is open to boys and girls of all skill levels and will run from April through June. The goal will be to allow boys and girls the opportunity to learn tackle football skills while having fun and enjoying social aspects of the game. This league will provide a wonderful opportunity to instill the value of good sportsmanship in our town's youth, while at the same time developing their athletic skills.

With the wet conditions, we'll be starting the season on the only space available to us during this time of year in South Mountain at the fair ground, 2967 Lough Rd, South Mountain. We're hoping the area has dried out in time for us to begin but we'll be monitoring it regularly and will update you all if anything changes.
To get the season going all teams will practice in FULL EQUIPMENT 3 days for the first 2 weeks starting April 18th as follows:
|Tues, Apr 18||6pm-8pm|

|Thurs, Apr 20||6pm-8pm|
|Tues, Apr 25||6pm-8pm|

Details about further practices to follow. We'll be moving practices to Riverside Park in Kemptville as soon as we're allowed on the fields there for all age groups.
Please be sure to park only in the lot beside the main building or on the road. DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING OR DRIVE OUT TO THE PRACTICE LOCATION. Also, please remember to pick up all of your garbage and water bottles after every practice.
Now is a great time before the football season starts to think about getting your football player Baseline Tested for concussion. If your child sustains a concussion, baseline testing helps your medical professional determine severity of concussion and helps them plan a proper return-to-play regimen.
Why play football in Kemptville? Football is not only a great way for kids to stay active, but it encourages discipline, teamwork and helps foster new friendships.
Below is one of the many KMFC success stories.
Dear Coach Dave,
I am writing this letter to let you know how grateful I am for the football program that you run in Kemptville.
A couple of years ago, my son who was a shy kid with no friends and low self esteem, at my suggestion tried for your spring program. He was so scared and ready to quit after 10 minutes. During the tryouts, the manager of your team took my son aside and with patience encouraged him not to give up. Since that day my son's life changed completely.
I would like let you know that the team sprit that you promote during your training session, respect, discipline and fun, made my son to feel that he belongs, that being a big kid is OK and that friends do still exists. After the first year his self confidence increased , he developed friendships on the football field as well at school and he started to excel in his studies. Last year he received Honor Roll for the first time.
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks to you and to your team manager for all your hard work that you put year after year as you touch in such positive way the life of many kids and teenagers. I am sure that my son is one of the many success stories.
Thank you again.
One of the many happy football moms
