On Tuesday morning, USA Football announced that together with the 15 and the Mahomies Foundation, they plan to “enhance the youth football experiences of kids throughout the greater Kansas City area this season.”
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and USA Football will do that this summer by hosting three free youth football coach clinics — and by awarding grants to youth football leagues across the Eastern Kansas/Western Missouri region.
Coaches may register online at no cost for any of USA Football’s three coaching clinics. Here are the three clinic dates:
- Tuesday, July 27 at Homefield Olathe from 6-9 p.m.
- Saturday, July 31 at Webb City (Mo.) High School from 9 a.m. to Noon
- Saturday August 7 at Park Hill High School from 9 a.m. to Noon
Playing off of Mahomes’ No. 15 jersey number, 15 area youth leagues will earn a $2,000 operating grant by way of his foundation. Youth football programs may complete an online grant application now through July 14.
“Smart coaching can make a lasting and positive impact on kids and their sports development,” said Mahomes. “I’m happy to partner with USA Football to support healthy football practices for coaches and youth athletes across the KC region.”
“Patrick’s commitment to kids through his 15 and the Mahomies Foundation is immense and uncommon,” added USA Football CEO and executive director Scott Hallenbeck. “We value Patrick’s friendship and love of the game to deliver best-in-class coach training and grants to help elevate youth football programs throughout Greater Kansas City.”
15 and the Mahomies is dedicated to improving the lives of children. The Foundation supports initiatives that focus on health, wellness, communities in need of resources and other charitable causes.
