The Kansas City Chiefs are devoting efforts toward creating opportunities for young women to participate in the game of football and helping sanction the sport of girls high school flag at the state level in both Missouri and Kansas, ultimately opening doors for more local and national scholarship opportunities.

In addition to the inclusive girls clinic for athletes in grades 6-12 from 7 to 7:45 p.m., the Chiefs are convening with local athletic directors from the Springfield area to discuss resources available to enable the launch of high school girls flag football in their school districts.
