Who we are ...
The Valley Youth Conference simply put is the Best Conference of its kind in the nation! Having been in existence since 1966. The Conference acts as a governing body with well established playing rules and standards that are first and foremost, fair to all competitors. The Valley Youth Conference Track & Field competition is exclusive to its member clubs.
Through associations with our member teams, we provide some of the best sporting events in the country. Our Standards have been well established using technology to its fullest. The Valley Conference has required all sprint events to use fully automatic timing systems since 2002, being the first conference in the nation to go fully automatic in timing sprint events. In most cases our results are posted on this website the same day the event takes place. Some of our clubs are posting events to their websites during the meet so parents can view the results from the stands via smart phone technology, another first in the nation!
The Valley Youth Conference for over 45 years has been voluntarily helping boys and girls , many of whom are from single parent families - some from latch key homes - to develop athletically, academically and socially. The Los Angeles School Board and other area school boards have made this possible by providing use of their athletic facilities.
We are a non-profit 100% all volunteer organization devoted to youth through athletics. We offer a year round sports program through football, track & field , cross country, and cheerleading for boys and girls ages 5 to 18. Our goal is to provide a safe, healthy environment for our youth to develop in both athletics and citizenship. We encourage scholastic achievement, and have annually awarded thousands of dollars in academic scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have participated in one of our many athletic programs. We encompass the entire San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, Pasadena, West Los Angeles area, and Simi Valley.
Additionally, since its inception the Conference has been addressing the growing problem of obesity among today's youth.
Consequently, many thousands of young boys and girls have benefited from the disciplined program that requires demanding standards of behavior and academic grades to remain eligible for team competition.
Further, countless youngsters trained by veteran coaches have parlayed their advanced development into more proficient high school athleticism which, in turn, enabled them to earn college athletic scholarships at institutions that they might not otherwise been able to afford.
The Valley Youth Conference develops and guides the youth of today into the leaders of tomorrow in business and commerce. Over the past forty eight years our members have grown-up, and returned to the Valley Youth Conference as coaches to offer other children the same benefit of a lifetime of rewarding memories and friendships. Over 7,500 families annually participate in all of our programs.
Over 50% of all the college/pro athletes in the U.S. come from California, specifically, the San Fernando Valley area such as USC football great and Heisman Trophy Winner Charles White, NFL Houston Oilers Head Coach Jeff Fisher, and Olympic 400M Gold Medal Winner Quincy Watts, Olympic 800M and USA National Champion Alysia Montano to mention only a few. Therefore, our program demonstrates that we must be doing something right. Please support our children.
