CHANGE-MAKING VOLUNTEER

As a football coach for Kelowna Minor Football Association, Kendall Gross works to not only inspire his team on the field, but off the field as well. His mantra of, “Everything Counts,” is focused on the belief that every one of our actions either adds or subtracts from our goal, but is never neutral. For a team of teenage boys, this is extremely impactful. In 2016, Kendall’s Junior Bantam Lions remained undefeated during the tackle season, winning both the Southern Interior Football League and the Provincial Championships. In addition to coaching the U14 Bantam Lions, Kendall also coached the U14 Flag Football team. Out of 50 teams across the province, he led them to a second place finish. Kendall sits on the board of directors for Kelowna Minor Football as both a director and registrar. He spends countless hours, balancing teams with best player placement for the 600 player membership as well as fielding registration related calls. Kendall’s involvement with Kelowna Minor Football goes back to 2012 when he coached both the U10 team and the U10 flag football team to winning provincial championships. During 2016, Kendall donated more than 400 hours to Kelowna Minor Football. City of Kelowna
