R.V.F.A.

Rainier Valley Football Association otherwise known as R.V.F.A.,, R.V.F.A. is an organization created to give inner city kids a chance to play, learn and build up their self-esteem. This program strives to keep kids off the streets and out of trouble by instilling our youth with self-esteem, pride and respect for each other, family and the community they live in. R.V.F.A. will accomplish this goal by teaching youth about the importance of education, skills to positively solve problems, why team work is essential and taking responsibility for their own actions. R.V.F.A. has envolved into a full fledged organization, taking our kids back from the streets, teaching the fundamentals of football and cheerleading to kids from all walks of life. Currently our local public school district does not offer football to this age group (6-14yrs) due to budget constraints.

The Rainier Valley Football Association will be serving over 300 youth in the 2014 season while competing in the Nisqually Junior Football League. With the increasing cost of league fees, insurance and equipment for the kids, we are seeking assistance to be able to provide this service at a continually low rate. We are a non profit organization with a 501c(3) and we are accepting any and all donations at this time to assist with out budget costs.
