Youth Sports Thrive in Awesometown

It’s no secret that Awesometown is a wonderful place for kids to grow up — fantastic parks, award-winning schools and friendly neighbors. But you may not know that Valencia is also home to some of the best children’s sports teams around,  proving again and again just how awesome this town is.

Children in Valencia have their choice when it comes to sports. Locally offered athletic programs include soccer, baseball, softball, football, golf, cheerleading, tennis, volleyball and much more, with several champion teams hailing from Awesometown.

Perhaps the most distinguished team, Hart Baseball, has established Valencia as both the place to be and the place to beat. Hart Baseball recently made headlines when their Hart Mustang Red team was crowned first in the Pony Mustang World Series, a second win since 2007 for the hardworking team.

Adding to the excitement, several other teams are representing the Santa Clarita Valley in style and with a passion for excellence. Canyon County Little League scored big with their second consecutive win at this year’s District 40 Championship. Not to be outdone, the Canyon Country Athletic Association senior cheer team took home the title at Sharps National Cheer Championship this year.

And we cannot forget the Canyon’s Aquatics Club who recently sent 5 of its members to the USA Swimming National Championships to compete against the top swimmers in the U.S.

The Community Hiking Club is another great way to get outdoors and get active. The group has regular hikes of all levels, so anyone can participate and enjoy the great outdoors around Valencia.
