The Kansas City Chiefs, in partnership with Nike, will be hosting eight high school football teams for an "11-On" competition at Friends University (2100 W. University Ave.) in Wichita, Kansas, on Friday, June 10.
The "11-On" initiative is a unique, half-day, team experience that supports scholastic high school football team competition. It focuses on building character and life skills along with team foundations throughout the exciting, fast-paced, competitive event.
The participating schools include:
- Andover Central
- Lee's Summit North
- Wichita East
- Wichita Northwest
The event begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at 5 p.m., with different schools participating throughout the day. The event format includes multiple 7-on-7 games going on along with position-specific drills being conducted in alternating drill stations to work on skills and technique.
Chiefs 11-On powered by Nike is open to the public and is free to attend, whether you have a family member or friend competing, or are just a football fan.
In addition to the exciting on-field competition, the Chiefs are bringing a Lombardi Trophy display for photo opportunities. The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission will also open an auction of autographed items from Chiefs players at Friday's event to help raise money for families who were impacted by the recent tornado in Andover, Kansas.
In addition, the Chiefs Training Lab powered by GEHA – the club's mobile, interactive experience for teaching youth about the importance of health, wellness and being active – will be on-site throughout the event, and USA Football will be running a free youth football clinic for children ages 5-14 from noon to 5 p.m. Parents who are interested in having their children participate in the youth clinic need to fill out a waiver at https://usafootball.tfaforms.net/292393.
The club is planning another Chiefs 11-On event for Topeka on Friday, June 24. Additional details about the Topeka Chiefs 11-On event will be announced at a later date.
