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.
Active Youth Do Better In Life
Parenting is increasingly difficult in today's society due to the impact of social media and its influence on children. This has resulted in high levels of low self-esteem and mental health issues, alongside a rise in obesity and alcohol and substance abuse. However, keeping children active through participation in sports has been proven to help tackle these problems.

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.
