Coming in February, the Kennewick Grid Kids are going to be presenting a month long conditioning camp to get players ready for what is hoped is a spring season.

The Back to Business Training Camp will begin February with sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The sessions will be presented and monitored with guidance from the CDC and using WIAA (WA high school) protocols concerning player safety when it comes to COVID.

The cost is $40 per participant, and it's open to all boys and girls 1st through 8th grade. Sign up is limited to the first 200, so hurry. (There have been and continue to be a number of girls who play in the tackle league).

There is financial aid available for families who qualify. KGK President Jeff Boyus said in a statement that read in part:

“Most kids haven’t set foot on a sports field for 9 months, many haven’t even returned to classrooms. We know that sports provide  valuable opportunities for the physical activity, camaraderie, and routine that is vital to good mental health. Local high schools have safely and successfully implemented group training for the past three months. Our vision is to bring those same opportunities to younger athletes in 1st-8th grades.”

Participation is NOT limited to football players or cheerleaders. Other kids who are seeking to get in shape for their sports are welcome.  KGK is made up of six organizations, the Colts, Huskies, Panthers, Bears, Eagles and Coyotes, each with four squads (D, C, B, and A-based upon age and size) who all participate in the tackle league. There's also a flag league for younger children.

Kennewick Grid Kids are also an official USA Football (NFL) Partner, observing all training, coaching, health and safety rules and training handed down by the NFL.
