Even though the Eagles won the Super Bowl this past Sunday, football doesn’t have to end. KYA’s Spring football is a great place to continue to enjoy football and allow young players to continue to learn and grow in the sport. “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 and learn more about KYA Football,” said KYA Football Commissioner, Garvin Fouts.
Close to 500 youth football players will show off their football skills hoping to be the next Dak Prescott or Sean Lee as the Keller Youth Association (KYA) Football kicks off its 2018 Spring tackle season. Spring 2018 tackle football registration is currently open to all Keller, North Fort Worth, and DFW area youth between 5 and 12 years of age not already in middle school. Players may register online at KYAFootball.com until February 13th. On-site registrations will also be accepted during the grass drills at the Keller Sports Complex Football - Field #2 on Saturday, February 10th.
Grass Drills are similar to a mini NLF combine. These drills require a player to participate in a 40-yard sprint and an agility course that includes, passing, receiving, tackling and footwork. View our Grass drills YouTube video.
Registration fee for KYA Football includes game uniform (Jersey, Pants, and helmet decals). Registration fee is $165 and there is a $30 non-Keller resident fee. Players will be allocated to teams based on the coach’s draft throughout the weekend of February 16. All of our head coaches are NYSCA (National Alliance for Youth Sports) certified. Teams are allocated among divisions, which include Mite (ages 5-6), Bantam (ages 7-8), Junior (age 9-10) and Senior (age 11-12). The current KYA Football Spring registration numbers look strong but more 11-12 year-old players are needed to round out the Senior division.
The Spring season includes an exciting array of six to eight games and a playoff Super Bowl Championship bracket. Practices begin the week of February 19 and are held within the Keller ISD school boundaries. Games will be played on Saturdays from 9am to 7pm at Keller Sports Complex and at local Keller High Schools. The first game is scheduled for March 24 and ends with the Super Bowl Championship game on May 19. All of the games are officiated by referees that are UIL certified.
KYA Football is one of the oldest and most respected youth football organizations in DFW and the North Texas region. Each year over 1,000 youth football players learn the game of football from KYA Football's experienced youth football coaches. Many of KYA's youth football players have gone on to be leaders within their High School athletic programs. Please visit us at KYAFootball.com for more information
