The Richland Youth Association (RYA) was established in 1964 and for over 50 years has provided year round sports experiences to the North Richland Hills and surrounding areas. Youth from age 3 to 14 participate in Baseball, 4 to 13 participate in Cheer, and age 5 to 12 participate in Basketball and Football. RYA strives to provide the highest level of competition for our athletes stressing the importance of team work, commitment, and of course FUN!
Our coaches in all sports are held to a very high standard. In addition to all coaches completing annual background checks, coaches also maintain coaching certifications by completing online classes through the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS).
Referees and Umpires complete several hours of training and are certified by their respective organizations annually as well. All referees and umpires additionally must complete an RYA background check annually and baseball umpires are all required to gain certification through NAYS Officials Training as well.
The Richland Youth Association is non-profit and educational organization whose mission is to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America's youth through the sports of Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Cheerleading at all levels of age and competition.

Lightning Advisory Info
Perry Weather has a lightning advisory feature that detects lightning within 10 miles of our parks. If lightning is observed within 10 miles, all practices and games must be suspended for 30 minutes. This 30 minute timer will reset with each lightning strike within 10 miles.
When activated, the indicator at the parks will make a loud series of sounds and the indicator will begin flashing yellow. Once all clear, the indicator will stop flashing yellow and will make another loud sound to announce it is clear to resume activities.
WBGT (WetBulb Globe Temperature)
Use the links below to see the current WBGT (WetBulb Globe Temperature)
This is the temperature that RYA and the City of NRH use to determine if weather conditions are safe for outdoor activities such as practices and games.
If the WBGT is 90.1-92, coaches are required to limit practices to 60 minutes.
If the WBGT is above 92, all practices and/or games will be suspended until the WBGT is below 92.
Player safety is our number one priority. Please let us know if there are any safety concerns or comments you would like to share:
Check here between 2-3pm on rainy days, as the city's Parks and Recreation department will update us on the fields being open or closed for practices and games.
