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.
