Caruso Youth Sports and Fitness Complex filled up with excited children and parents as Fort Knox Child and Youth Services kicked off another fall season of fun Sept. 11, 2019.

The Fort Knox Garrison command team of Col. CJ King and Command Sgt. Maj. Garrick Griffin spoke to the crowd after Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation staff announced the teams participating in this year's events.

King encouraged parents to not expect their children to be professional athletes at their level of competition, let coaches coach, and enjoy watching their children develop throughout the season.

The ceremony included a moment of silence for those who died in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The season opener wrapped up with fun games and activities that included football toss rings, bounce houses, fun interaction with police and fire officials and food and drinks.

Some football and soccer teams played season games after the ceremony.
