Utah's Hometown ~ Baseball, hot dogs and apple pie -- we don't just say it, we live it! Kaysville is the type of city people love to call home. An active community where traditions are kept, families are valued, and citizens enjoy a sense of belonging and the spirit of community.
We're uniquely situated and conveniently located "in the middle of everything." Kaysville isn't just a great place to live, it's a great place to do business. Great accessibility and low taxes are just some of the benefits our businesses enjoy. Come see what all of the fuss is about.

November Volunteer Honored - John Toone
Congratulations to John Toone for being awarded Kaysville's Volunteer of the Month. John and his family have called Kaysville home since July of 1999. John is the father of three very active and “sports-loving” boys, and he enjoys being involved in the Kaysville community. John has been an assistant baseball coach, assistant basketball coach, head soccer coach, and a football coach for 11 years. The last eight years, he was a head football coach. John has served as Kaysville’s representative for USA Football’s “Heads Up” training for the last few years where he trained all of the Kaysville coaches. He has also served as the WFFL Rules Committee Chairman.
He is recognized as a passionate coach that is very demanding of his players, insisting that kids today are capable of being disciplined, can operate unselfishly as teammates, and can do very hard things. But sport should be fun, he insists, so he has incorporated movies, costumes, music, and other non-traditional methods into his coaching repertoire. He is known to love his players deeply. Throughout the years, knowing the impact he could have on his players, he has received visits from parents and teachers requesting that he discuss with his athletes their personal challenges, their need to improve scholastically, and when to improve their classroom behavior. In return, his players respect him and want to do their very best for him. John was inspired to coach because of his youthful heart, love for sport (football especially), and the impact that his own youth coaches had on him, including one who offered John counsel after receiving a college football-ending injury and then gave continued guidance for many years after. Coaching can be grueling, but seeing growth in his boys, after life lessons learned through athletics, makes his willingness to coach now and in the future more than worth it.
