The Western Kenosha County Youth Football (WKCYF) organization was created in 2000.  The program provides elementary and middle school-aged children of all Western Kenosha County an opportunity to enjoy participating in tackle football, cheerleading, and flag football. We strive to provide a fun opportunity for our participants while teaching fundamentals, sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership in a safe manner.  

You will find information about our league throughout this web site. Please check back often. The Board thanks all of the loyal supporters of the Western Kenosha County Youth Football Program. The sponsors, volunteers, parents, and players all make this program possible, we hope everyone has a great season.

TCYFL Cancels 2020 Season

Dear WKCYF Jr. Panther Family, 

With the recent announcement from the TCYFL, we are saddened to announce the cancellation of the 2020 season for Jr. Panthers Football and Cheer.  The health and safety of our participants, coaches, and fans has always been the WKCYF as well as the TCYFL’s number one consideration in making any and all decisions as it pertains to the season.  

Our Organization, including our Board, coaches, and volunteers, have worked tirelessly to organize a memorable season for our families.  Rest assured we are fully committed to bringing you the same quality, competitive experience in 2021, bigger and better!

There is no question that this is an unprecedented time for all of us as it relates not only to our organization, but also to our society as a whole.  We will make every effort to continue providing opportunities for our participants to be active and learning the game of football and the skills of cheerleading under the guidelines and regulations that are provided by the County as soon as we are able to meet those standards. So stay tuned and check your emails and our social media pages. 

We know there are many questions that you may have and we will do our best to answer them all in the upcoming days.  Please be on the lookout for more information via the website as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.  Those families who have already registered are asked to fill THIS FORM regarding registration fees.

On behalf of your entire WKCYF Board, Coaches, and Volunteers, thank you for your continued support of the Jr. Panthers, and most importantly, stay well.
