Mission Statement
Posted Dec 22, 2013

Greater Lehigh Valley Athletics (GLVA), established in 2013, is a non-profit 501c (3) coed youth sports league.  The organization was established to promote the wholesome development of youth through their association with adult leaders.  GLVA is dedicated to the philosophy that all athletes will receive equal amounts of playing time regardless of skill, experience or ability.  Rules and regulations are established to ensure that players play in an atmosphere of safety with a competitive balance between teams.

GLVA is dedicated to teaching youth through positive role models with an emphasis on learning and enjoying a sport while instilling high moral standards by stressing the importance of academic achievement and community involvement. Helping kids become leaders and teammates, GLVA players will learn to both foster confidence and a sense of self-worth that extend beyond the field and into the school, family and community.

Sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, responsibility and self-discipline are among the traits needed by today’s youth to face the future with positive aspirations and confidence.  Through the teaching of positive lessons, such as playing by the rules, our young athletes will learn to live by the rules.
