About Us:
The Valley Raiders Sports Organization began in 1978 as a youth sports club providing youth athletes (girls and boys 5-15 years old) with coaching and competition in football, basketball and track. We are organized under the umbrella of the Valley Youth Conference.
The Valley Raiders continue to provide coaching and training using facilities at Birmingham High School, at the corner of Victory and Balboa Boulevard in Lake Balboa (Van Nuys), California. The Valley Raiders Track Club has gained one of the finest reputations in the Los Angeles area due to the dedication and commitment of the athletes, coaches, parents and other adult participants engaging in the program.
The Valley Raiders Track Club is a non-profit organization. The Valley Raiders Track Club is self-supporting (tax deductible donations are always welcome and receipts will be gladly provided) and all of its personnel are volunteers.
Valley Raiders Track Club youth athletes have competed in State, National and International competition. In addition, many Valley Raiders Track Club athletes continue their track & field careers in high schools, colleges, and universities across the nation.
