The History of QVRA

QVRA was first organized in the 1970s by community volunteers to provide youth baseball and softball programs for boys and girls in the area.

In 1976, Sewickley Area Soccer (SAS) was formed to organize youth soccer programs for the same children within the community.

In July 2006, QVRA and SAS merged into a single 501(c)3. Quaker Valley Softball and Baseball (QVSB) was formed as a wholly-owned division of QVRA to continue the tradition of baseball and softball previously delivered by QVRA.


In 2009, Sewickley Valley Lacrosse (SVLAX) joined the organization and became a wholly-owned division of QVRA.
