“We believe we have one of the best Spring tackle youth football programs in North Texas. Many players from all over DFW register to play at KYA in the Spring because we are one, of only a few, youth football leagues that offer tackle football in the Spring. Spring football is also a great time for new players to learn tackle football. I would like to invite anyone interested, or even curious about youth football, to come out to the grass drills over the next two weekends and learn more about KYA Football,” said KYA Football VP, Garvin Fouts.
