Celebrating Diverse Communities

Now more than ever we see an opportunity to celebrate the diverse communities that makes up the Twin Cities metropolitan area. We are excited to announce a sports league like no other, using the beautiful game to champion people, and learn more about each other on and off the court.

As Seen In

A Different Approach

Values & Community are at our core.

In a world of pay to play athletics, where many communities are left out, we have developed a model that gives kids the opportunity to play competitive futsal in a positive environment that promotes giving back to the community. We have partnered with local community organizations to have our athletes provide an hour of service each week giving back to the community and learning from each other, while developing relationships that may have never been cultivated before. We have eliminated the financial component and have developed a positive sense of community that has never been done before.

Making an Impact

Creating Change

Our unique futsal league combines one hour of community service from each player every week, free meals, and a great environment to play. This is the impact it had in 2021.

Leaders

Developing Leaders for Generations to Come

Our unique approach has put kids and the community first. We recognize that to make a positive impact we need to provide positive experiences for our youth, while giving back to the communities they are from. Our service model eliminates the financial barrier in youth sports while emphasizing the importance of developing a strong positive community for all.

It has brought me and my friends together. It really helped me find something that I love to do every day, but they brought me more than just soccer they tot me community. Stick together.”

Health & Well Being

Placing an Emphasis on Physical & Mental Health

Studies have shown the negative affects of kids not getting enough physical activity in their lives. The rate of childhood obesity in marginalized communities is on the rise. Our goal is to help bring those numbers down by providing healthy environments where kids can be physically active and enjoy the beautiful game.

"Playing has given me opportunities to represent my community."

I love the game, but in my community it is not something that young women are encouraged to do. I am so happy to be a part of KFA and the Women’s National Team. It gives me the opportunity to show young women that they can do anything they want if they put their time and dedication into it.”

In Honor of Keith Kiecker

We dedicated our inaugural 2021 season to Keith Kiecker. Keith was a leader in the community advocating for athletes from all communities to have opportunities through the game. His passion and commitment to people is what we stand for.

It takes a community to build a community. Thank you to all of the businesses, organizations, and individual donors who have helped create this amazing league. Without your support we could not make this happen.
