WILSHIRE YOUTH ATHLETIC CLUB

HUSKIES FOOTBALL AND CHEERLEADING


    

The Wilshire Youth Athletic Club (WYAC) was founded in March 1977 as a non-profit corporation under federal guidelines 501(c)3, to sponsor supervised activities for disadvantage youth in the Los Angeles surrounding areas. The Club's mission is to divert youth from negative activities to positive activities and healthy influences.  Wilshire goal is to teach the youth the fundamentals of the sports, sportsmanship, the ability to follow instructions and interact with others, as well as, the ability to build strong personal characteristics.  All football players and cheerleaders are also given an opportunity to participate in our scholastic program.

The Wilshire Huskies provide competition in tackle football for youth ages 6-13 (placement on teams will be according to your child's age as of August 1, 2014) and cheerleading ages 6-14 (mascots ages 5).

 

Wilshire joined the King Football Conference their first season (1977) and played under their umbrella through the 1998 season.  Our original team divisions and names were: Tiny Mite-Wildcats, Mity Mite-Youngbloods, Pee Wee-Athletes, Midget-Cobras and Jr. Bantam-Saints. 

In 1999, the Club joined the Valley Youth Conference.  In 2000, we changed our team names to Huskies.  The Club has seven (7) team divisions: Junior Clinic (age 6); Senior Clinic (ages 7-8); Gremlin (ages 8-10); Tiny Mites (ages 9-11); Mity Mites ( ages 9-12); Pee Wee (ages 10-13) and Midget (ages11- 14).  The Gremlin, Tiny Mite, Mity Mite and Pee Wee divisions have a play down rule (only 12 players at the top age per team).


 As part of the Valley Youth Conference, we engage in friendly competition with other self-supporting clubs in the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley areas.
