The NKYFL. Who are we?

The Northern Kentucky Youth Football League is your home for Tackle Football, Flag Football, & Cheerleading in Northern Kentucky! Established in 1958, we have over 65 seasons behind us. Making us one of the longest running youth football & cheer organizations in the nation and the longest running in Kentucky.

Our league currently boasts 20 member organizations covering all of Boone, Kenton, Campbell, Gallatin, Bracken, Pendleton & Grant counties.  Most of which work directly with local high schools and play all of our league games throughout NKY, which helps alleviate travel concerns for our families. No matter where you live in NKY we have an organization for your young athletes.

We offer a variety of age divisions to provide maximum playing time and the development of our youth athletes including 5 age divisions of tackle football ranging from 5-12 years old, 1 flag division for our youngest athletes, and 6 cheer divisions which includes a league wide NKYFL Cheer Competition and other opportunities to compete.

Providing a quality, competitive, and most importantly safe environment for kids to learn, develop, and enjoy football and cheer is our main goal. If you have any questions feel free to reach out, we look forward to adding your family for the upcoming NKYFL season!
