The tackle season of 2018 marks the beginning of a new era in Kelowna Minor Football ~ Junior Sun Football!

We are excited to announce that all teams will now be united under the Junior Sun banner as we are one football family here at KMFA. Football in Kelowna is growing in popularity and it was time to increase the number of teams available for more opportunity for kids to play. With this, changes were made to how teams are formed, giving kids a great new chance to meet new teammates and experience different coaches for an enhanced playing experience. Stay tuned to see what’s next….
