Welcome to Valley United Striders!
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce the VALLEY UNITED STRIDERS ALL STAR TEAM (VUNS).
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 compete 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.
2021 CROSS COUNTRY
Due to the uncertainty of the USATF competition this year we have decided to go to AAU, we will be taking A & B teams to the National race in Charlette, North Carolina on December 4, 2021.
Teams will be assigned according to rankings of our meets up thru October 30, 2021.
There will be no qualifying races required to go to the Charlette, North Carolina meet.
All athletes will need to get an AAU membership card, its best to do that now.
Team hotel in Charlette North Carolina will be sent out as soon as it has been set.
Here are important details of the next few weeks.

We will still be supporting USATF events in November for all who would like to attend as there will be 2 races at Central Park Nov 14th and 21st! We hope to run the concession stand to help fund our Season!

AAU Hotel For Las Vegas –The Regional AAU race will be on Saturday November 6th in North Las Vegas at Floyd Lamb Park.
There are a lot of events in North Las Vegas that weekend and I was not able to secure enough rooms near the park as they were all either booked up or the few I found were all over $300.00 per night.
The AAU has a nice discount at the Westgate Hotel . It is 19 miles from the course and the rate is $98.00 per night with free parking for 2 people there is a charge of $35.00 per person over 2 per room. I usually do not like Casinos’ but there are not a lot of rooms out there. You can stay here, or choose your own accommodations

This year we have decided to support the AAU Nationals Junior Olympics on December 4th, in Charlotte North Carolina. After much investigation we determined for this year it is the most stable location. We love USATF, but with the meet possibly being changed to a 2 day meet and the course being so far out from Lexington the VVC teams fell that for this year AAU would be the better venue. We will still be supporting USATF events in November for all who would like to attend as there will be 2 races at Central Park Nov 14th and 21st!
We will be setting up sign up links in the next few weeks, but for now the most important thing to do if you are wanting to be on the Valley United team, is to get or renew your AAU Card! A and B teams will be decided after our Oct 30th meet at Crescenta Valley Community Park meet.
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.
