About RYA

Mission Statement:

Reston Youth Association’s mission is to provide an opportunity for children of Reston and surrounding areas to participate in an organized youth football and cheerleading program. We aspire to build a successful youth organization by applying standards and activities that will create an environment of athletic enthusiasm and learning with a focus on achieving high academic standards. RYA’s executive board strongly believes it is our responsibility to be positive role models by giving back to our youth and continually strive to build a healthy positive community.  

Vision (Reason for being):

Reston Youth Association believes children who remain active in organized activities will be better students, responsible citizens and grow into responsible adults. In addition to learning the game of football and cheerleading, our children will learn responsibility, respect for authority, respect for their peers, sportsmanship, and develop courage for future life challenges. Our goal is to achieve athletic success while nourishing healthier, smarter and happier children.
