Welcome To Richland Youth Association

Richland Youth Association 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 Basketball, Baseball, Football and Cheerleading.

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 background checks annually, our coaches also maintain coaching certifications by completing online classes through the National Association of Youth Sports (NAYS). 

Referees and Umpires complete several hours of training and are certified by their respective organizations annually as well.

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 Cheer leading at all levels of age and competition.

Thank you for taking time to review our program and we look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
