Why play football? 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 spirit 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
