The Kinsmen Football League shows off the sport of tackle football in its purist form.

The KFL has been a staple on Saskatoon’s sports scene since 1968. It has been the circuit where a lot of kids first learn how to play the game of tackle football.

Over that time, most of those games have been played at Saskatoon Minor Football Field here at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex.

Before the start of the 2020 season, the KFL came under the control of Saskatoon Minor Football. Thanks to the great work by the SMF staff, the KFL was able to hit the turf with a season in 2020, while lots of other sports and leagues were grounded due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has gripped the world.

For this month’s content upload, the “Howe Happenings” blog checked in with the KFL for the main feature piece. The piece talks about the basics of how the KFL looks in the current day, and how much fun players have learning the game of tackle football.

On top of checking in with the KFL, there is a new photo post on “Howe Happenings” that gives a glimpse on what has been happening on the Gordie Howe Sports Complex this fall. The views are similar to those of past years on our grounds.

You can find these items on the “Howe Happenings” blog at howehappenings306.blogspot.com.

New content will be released on the ninth day of each month. We hope you will enjoy the stories that make up the posts on the “Howe Happenings” blog.
