Fall Tackle Football


The fall tackle program is for 3rd through 8th graders and teams are formed by high school area. 

Participants in the tackle program must register on-line after May 1 and then attend one of our weigh-in & equipment check out days scheduled on several Saturdays and weeknights throughout the summer.
We recommend that when you register your child for the fall program, select to PAY BY CHECK. This completes the registration at the time, but does not require you to pay the registration fee and equipment rental.  Those fees can be paid at the time rented equipment is received or prior to the start of the season. 

Generally, there are six weeks of practice prior to the start of the season -- the first week is for non-contact practices with a minimum number of hours of conditioning to be completed by all tackle players prior to starting contact practices. Players may not participate in practices (non-contact OR contact) until registered on-line, officially weighed in at the complex and provided a copy of a 2020 physical to the coach.

The 2020 tackle season will consist of 6 regular season games beginning Saturday, September 5 and completed by the weekend of October 17.  All teams will play 2 postseason games the weekends of October 24 and 31.

Restricted Ball Carrier Weights for start of season:

3rd Grade - 87
4th Grade - 100
5th Grade - 115
6th Grade - 130
7th Grade - 145
8th Grade - 175

Equipment Information

Rental Equipment:
Equipment may be rented at one of the Weigh-In & Equipment Rental Dates at Heritage Football Complex, 162nd & Pflumm, Olathe KS.

Owned Equipment:
Individuals who own their own equipment must bring it to weigh-in to have the equipment checked and approved by KCFC Staff for use during the season.  

Player-owned helmets should be reconditioned every two or three years.  Helmets manufactured in 2017 are due for reconditioning before use in 2020. It is recommended that it be sent in by late February 2020 as it generally takes 4-6 weeks. Parents should expect to pay for the cost of reconditioning, tax and shipping. The Riddell contact for reconditioning is Steve Washam ([email protected]).  ASA Football also reconditions helmets -- contact is Ken Lewis at [email protected] 
Even though you may purchase a “new” helmet, check the manufactured date to make sure that it is not due for reconditioning before usage.

Helmets which were manufactured more than two years ago are out of date and may not be used if they have not been reconditioned. KCFC recommends that helmets be reconditioned every three years.

Returning Equipment:
Players choosing to quit should return their equipment to the KCFC office at 15030 W 106th St. Lenexa, KS 66215, during regular business hours (Mon-Fri, 10 am to 4 pm). If quitting before games begin, the equipment rental fee will be refunded, less a $5 administrative fee.

Ball Size
Game balls shall be Pee Wee size for 3rd grade, Junior size for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, and Youth/Intermediate size for 7th and 8th grades.

Financial Assistance

Families in need of financial assistance for the equipment rental fee or registration fee may complete a scholarship request form. Deadlines have been established for each scholarship program and are noted on the appropriate scholarship application.
Please note that scholarships are reviewed after the posted deadline.  If approved, scholarships will be applied once your portion has been paid. As a reminder, a maximum of 50% can be awarded. You may log in and make payments if paying the full amount is not possible all at once.
