About Us


Killeen-Cove Chiefs Youth Sports Association

KCCYSA was established in 2009 by Dale Seitter to provide a non-select all inclusive youth football and cheerleading alternative in the Fort Hood area. KCCYSA promotes successful performance on the field and in the classroom by instilling core ethics based on hard work, discipline, respect, determination and desire. The goal of KCCYSA is to teach youth that the value and capability of the entire group is dependent upon each individual doing their best to achieve a single goal. No one player, coach, parent or entity is more important the team itself. KCCYSA develops leaders on and off the field for today and the future. The youth of today are our future and the ethics and values learned in KCCYSA are intended to help them establish a firm foundation for athletics, academics and life. KCCYSA believes we owe our best to the kids entrusted to our care and mentorship before, during and after each season.


The mission of the KCCYSA is to teach children the fundamental skills of football and cheerleading while implementing and encouraging good sportsmanship, honesty, integrity, courage and loyalty for oneself and others; and for all KCCYSA athletes, parents, and spectators to follow the rules of the game and the by-laws as set forth by KCCYSA and the governing league. KCCYSA also requires community involvement of athletes, volunteers, and parents as part of the educational and social development process for all.


KCCYSA will instill in our youth the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, the importance of commitment and the spirit of community.  These goals will be achieved through organizing our dedicated volunteers, caring parents, and business associates who wish to partner with our great youth program.

KCCYSA will continue to expand opportunities to include more youth programs in sports, academics and social development.  KCCYSA is more than an athletic program, we are a community asset that extends our support with actions and partnerships throughout the entire year. 

Developing Our Future Leaders!
