PYAC's athletic program is dedicated to providing athletic opportunities for the youth of our area, which will build confidence and self-esteem. We believe that every youth should be able to participate in the athletic programs of his/her choice, regardless of race, religion, creed, sex, ability, or financial status.
While winning is, and should be, a part of organized athletics, it should remain just that -- a part. Winning is not the focus of our programs and is not used as a measure of success.
Most of our athletics have game schedules that live online and are regularly updated. These can be found on the Valley League Sports website.
