Valley Thunder Thanks LA84

Supporting Youth Sports in Our Community

Updated Wednesday January 25, 2017 by Clifford Robinson.

The LA84 Foundation is a nationally recognized leader in support of youth sport programs and public education and advocates for the important role sports participation plays in positive youth development. Created with a share of the 1984 Olympic Games surplus, LA84 began operations in 1985 as a grant making and educational foundation. The foundation supports hundreds of non-profit youth sports organizations throughout Southern California annually, trains coaches, commissions research, convenes conferences and maintains the world’s premier Olympic and sports library collection.

LA84 has played a vital role in helping Valley Thunder further develop it's programs through Gridiron Youth Football Academy and our other sponsors. Future advancement will include, improvement in safety equipment, participation, sideline defibrillators, tackle wheels and new technologies.
