It’s not just college, NFL and high school football that’s back — the ‘little’ folks are hitting the fields, too.Throughout the Mid-Columbia last week,  numerous youth football programs in Richland, Pasco and Kennewick began practicing for games starting mid September. Each city has youth football programs for kids ranging from as young six up to 12 or 13 for most leagues.

Richland Youth Football offers a variety of teams for players that include  four divisions  with as many as seven teams in each division. Games are played at a variety of fields for the different teams.

Pasco Youth Football also has a number of different teams for different ages, and begins play Sept. 8. They play games at Chiawana, Pasco High School, and the Pasco Youth Fields located near North 1st. and Clark St. in Pasco.

Kennewick has the Grid Kid Program, with eight organizations featuring five teams each for players from 6 through 13 years of age. They feature ‘E’ squads for the very little ones up to ‘A’ for the bigger players. All Kennewick games start Sept. 15, and are played at the Eastgate Grid Kid complex next to Eastgate Elementary School on 10th. Ave. in Kennewick, right next to the Benton Franklin Fairgrounds.

Perhaps you know someone with a child playing in one of these leagues. Take some time on a Saturday and head out to support these boys and girls. There have been a number of girls who’ve played and are currently playing who do quite well.

Perhaps some of the stars of tomorrow will be playing this fall in a youth league near you. The Tri-Cities has a very strong high school football tradition, and it starts with the kids having fun on Saturdays in the Mid-Columbia!
