FIYA GIRLS ARE UNSTOPPABLE!

In honor of Women's Equality Day, we wanted to celebrate all of our amazing female student-athletes, as well as coaches, athletic directors, officials, and more, who are such an integral part of our organization and our mission.

We're looking forward to the return of our youth sports programs this school year and to get our students back out on the playing field! To learn more about our nonprofit, who we serve, and what after-school programs we provide for Los Angeles elementary and middle schools please continue exploring our website.

NEARLY HALF

of our participating schools serve predominantly lower to moderate income families

APPROX. 80%

of our student athletes represent minority groups

AND OVER 33%

are female.

Beyond the numbers, we continuously receive feedback from parents, teachers and school administrators that our school-based sports programs provide the incentive for their kids to excel in the classroom. Our mission of strengthening schools through sports is alive and well and we look forward to seeing it back in action for the 2021-2022 School Year!

FIYA believes in the power of school-based sports and the impact a school athletic program makes on schools and their communities. Our organization is proudly made up of school participants from over 40 Los Angeles zip codes (and counting) that range from the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach. As we continue to grow, it is our belief that every child should have an equal chance to play sports, and we hope one way that's possible is through FIYA and our partnership with our member schools' athletic programs!
