The Karen FA

Welcome to the Karen Football Association (KFA). The goal for our organization is to provide pathways for our players to college and professional environments, both on and off the field, using a holistic approach to development that emphasizes technical, cognitive, and social growth.

"KFA means so much to me. I never thought that I would be able to play in the US National Youth Futsal Tournament. I am honored to represent my community and showcase the many incredible athletes we have."

Beyond the Pitch

Our goals reach far beyond the pitch. Our mission is to unite the community’s passion for soccer with the importance of gender equity, while giving opportunities to young women and men that sit outside the mainstream youth sports, and academic systems. Learn more about the Karen community, their history and culture below.

BEYOND THE PITCH

Culture + History

The Karen people began to inhabit what eventually became Burma about two thousand years ago. They traveled from Tibet and China and settled largely in the hills bordering the eastern mountainous region of Burma.

As an organization, we know that it is our responsibility to be an influential role model for other teams, businesses, and organizations; teaching society, that women and men will always be on an equal on and off the field.
