The Folsom Athletic Association (FAA) began in 1979 with a small group of prominent, community-driven friends who realized the economic and social values of creating a parks and recreation system and what the value would bring Folsom, CA.
Folsom Athletic Association is a non-profit service organization working to assist in the administration of community youth sports, creating recreation and athletic opportunities through teamwork, fundraising, programs, events, and scholarships.
The partnership with the City of Folsom and Folsom Cordova Unified School District allows the FAA to advocate for the youth groups to create opportunities to acquire land, develop and share facilities and costs, enhance the value of facilities of adjacent schools and parks, and design amenities that overlap schools and parks. Today, the partnership involves 16 parks and 15 schools with 360 multi-use facilities and amenities.
Folsom’s first rate parks and recreation system offers youth sports athletic opportunities through programs and events. A Never in Our Town” Youth Assistance Program assures all youths have the opportunity to participate in recreational services, scholarships are available for youth sports and high school graduating seniors, and fundraising supports the clubs in a number of ways opening doors for many.
