Welcome to Valley United Striders!
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the VALLEY UNITED STRIDERS ALL STAR TEAM. Restructured in 1986, Valley United has served as a vehicle for our top athletes of the VYC to unite together and compete locally and nationally. The team originally goes back into the 1960s. The Valley United Striders is the second oldest team in the State. Our USATF team number is 15.
The Valley United Striders competes in the USA Track and Field circuit as well as the AAU. Over the past decade Valley United has proven itself to be a dominating force locally and a nationally recognized power house. Our club has produced many National Champions, broken records, set records and won National Team Titles in both Cross Country and Track and Field.

Who we are …
The Valley Youth Conference simply put is the Best Conference in Southern California, 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.
We are a non-profit 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.
The Valley Youth Conference helps develop and guide the youth of today into the leaders of tomorrow. Over the past forty years our members have grown up and returned to the Valley Youth Conference as leaders, coaches and volunteers to give children the same opportunities, benefits and rewarding memories that can last a lifetime to the over 5,000 families that participate annually.
