Chiefs and Y Flag Football Partnership

The Y is proud to partner with the Kansas City Chiefs for youth flag football. Children 5 and older have the opportunity to improve their technique, build social skills, gain confidence and develop leadership abilities.

About this Partnership

NFL Flag Official League

The Y’s youth flag football programs for ages 5 and older are now sponsored by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Flag football participants receive exclusive Chiefs jerseys and medals. Families may also have access to special events for families, football camps and appearances by KC Wolf and Chiefs cheerleaders.

The Chiefs involvement in flag football is a key tenant of Chiefs Kingdom Kids, the Chiefs new youth-focused programming. Chiefs Kingdom Kids aims to provide unique experiences both at Arrowhead and around Kansas City – including movie nights, the Legends Youth Football Camp, Jr. Chiefs Cheer Camps and more. 

The Chiefs have a long history of supporting youth football within the community. Throughout the years, the Chiefs have hosted youth football events geared to educate parents and coaches and prepare youth athletes for the next level of play. The Hunt family has made corporate citizenship and charitable giving a priority for the entire organization. Those efforts focus on programs which improve the civic climate in our region, support families and children in crisis, improve health and wellness among children, as well as preserve the legacy and history of the game of football and the National Football League.
