Mission Statement


To build character, families, and faith in the youth of East Palo Alto and the Belle Haven community through positive sports programs at all levels of play.

Description


RYAA is a faith-based, non-denominational organization. RYAA began with a very successful recreational and competitive soccer program, and continues to expand its sports offerings. However, we do not see sports as the end-result, but rather a means to create relationships that will mentor, teach and encourage the participants in our programs. Critical to our success are our church partners. RYAA is a positive, uplifting place for church members to put their gifts and talents to work. Local churches have benefited from the relationships that form between volunteers, children and parents. East Palo Alto has many churches, and a rich tradition of Christian faith and Christian activism which we foster and encourage. Another focus of the RYAA is to work with the city and school district to maintain current sports facilities, expand the facilities, and to make them more accessible to the community.
