DADS' CLUB

CKS Dads' Club - Fantasy Football League

Show your knowledge, win prizes, help our school


All fathers are encouraged to join the Christ the King School Dads' Club Fantasy Football League. This is an excellent opportunity to connect with other fathers, enjoy the NFL season and win great prizes - all while helping Christ the King School.


The Fantasy Draft will be held Sunday, September 6, from 5-8 p.m. at Beerworks (213 N. Limestone). The goal is to have as many 10-player leagues as possible. It is $50 to enter a team. Half the proceeds will go to a project to get new outdoor basketball goals at Christ the King. The remaining half will go to the three top winners in each league: 1st place - $125 in cash or tab at Beerworks; 2nd - $75 in cash or tab at Beerworks; 3rd - $50 in cash or tab at Beerworks.


In the event you cannot be there in person, you're still welcome to play as you will be able to draft remotely! We plan to use ESPN Fantasy Football as our platform.


To sign or if questions, please contact Brant Welch at Brant.Welch@gmail.com. Thanks to all those who have already signed up!
