Chiefs promote flag football at 4 schools
Kansas City Chiefs mascot K.C. Wolf and several Chief Ambassadors — including former NFL players Ricky Siglar, Gary Spani, Marc Boerigter and Chris Penn — recently delivered flag football kits to physical education classes at four Lee’s Summit elementary schools.
Lee’s Summit, Summit Pointe, Pleasant Lea and Hazel Grove schools are participating in a pilot program for the Chiefs that aims to inspire confidence and teamwork in children by promoting flag football.
The visitors showed the flag football gear, including Chiefs jerseys, to students before playing games and conducting drills with the youngsters.

Starting in November, Lee’s Summit CARES will offer a five-week Love and Logic parenting course designed for families with children ages 11 to 17.
Parents will learn how to adapt their approach to help young people move into adulthood.
