schedules are now posted. This is the KMSL’s first full post COVID season
and it is going to be full and exciting. We have 50 teams this year so
fields and referee crews are tight. We have been able to get back to our
distinct divisions which means the league will implement promotion and
relegation next season to help balance the 2024 season. The board and our
league scheduler have done our best to insure fair play and a balance of teams.
We ask that you do your part, play fair, follow the rules and have some
fun as we move back to our regular formats. Playoff schedules will be
posted soon along with the individual team league fees.
