The premier 7v7 travel program in Canada. Contact us to find out when try-out dates are being held.
As a player or parent hearing of 7v7 for the first time you may have a lot of questions. Well we have the answers. Again we would like to stress that our team is NOT for everybody this is an Elite program with the end goal of receiving a NCAA D1 scholarship. Our aim with this team is to put yourself or your child in the best position to attain that goal.01. Why should I play 7v7?
Play against highest level of competition TOP Regional NCAA D-1prospects – see where you are relative to top athletes in your grade and position. You can read about how important 7v7 has become to NCAA recruiters HERE. The rules of 7v7 can be found right HERE.02. What if I want to play with my friends on a community football team?
You can. We do not recommend it for a host of reasons but you are more than welcome to play with your community football team. Just know that 0 NCAA scouts attended a community football game in Ontario last summer and if they did they violated NCAA recruiting rules.03. How much does it cost?
We believe that we created an unprecedented opportunity for student-athlete football players in Ontario. While most advanced level travel teams can cost upwards of $4000 to $5000, we have managed to put together a comprehensive program for elite high school football players that is absolutely cost effective for parents and players. Our team fee covers field time, instruction, coaching, uniforms, tournament fees, travel, accommodation expenses, and administrative costs. The only additional cost players will have will be breakfast, and lunch for tournament days, and we are working on getting those covered as well.04. What if I can’t afford the fee?
Financial Aid – The KF Football Academy provides every student-athlete the opportunity to play. Financial Aid is available on an individualized basis. All information will be strictly confidential. We also work with partners in the community including Their Opportunity and the Canadian Tire JUMPSTART program. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.05. Will there be Tryouts?
Of Course! Tryouts will take place at Pickering Indoor Soccer Dome in Pickering on Saturday, December 10 from 4PM-6PM.06. How is the team selected?
The KF Football Academy determines who will be on the team roster based on a combination of the results of the tryouts and a pre-evaluation by the coaches. All players that are invited to be on the team shall be notified within 10 days of the tryout. Some players may not be initially invited, but may be offered a second workout. Players who are not selected to the International/Select Travel Teams may still be asked to be part of the KF Football Academy program. This includes: training, participation in local tournaments, and open invitations to train and play with other regional organizations with our International/Select teams. Throughout the course of the season roster spots become vacant and additional players are asked to participate.07. How long is the season and where are we going?
The season begins with our first practice in early January, playing games in our league through February and March. Our season runs through July. This allows for ample recovery time and weightlifting work for the high school season. We are slated to compete in multiple international 7v7 tournaments, including:
