Anoka Ramsey Athletic Association, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation formed in 1979 to provide the youth of Anoka, Ramsey, and surrounding areas with guidance, equipment, and fields in order to participate in sports.
ARAA is an all-volunteer organization which cannot exist without the continuing efforts of committed parents, coaches, directors, commissioners, and board members. We believe this spirit of volunteerism and participation is essential to community health.
ARAA offers programs in Baseball, Basketball, Football, Lacrosse, Softball, Volleyball, Tennis, Wrestling and Soccer (Northern Lights Soccer Club). In 2012 our programs involved over 3,800 children and adults in the pursuit of athletic recreation, competition, and excellence. It is our hope that ARAA provides an opportunity for character development in all of its participants and promotes community well-being through its efforts.
ARAA Board & Individual Sport Committee Meetings:
Please visit each sport page for information regarding times, dates and locations for the meetings you would like to attend. These meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to attend, get involved and make a difference for your children and our community.
We understand that whether we like it or not, incidents, disagreements, and accidents happen in relation to youth sports. ARAA always recommends trying resolve issues with your child's coach or with the leaders of the sport first, but if you need another path for assistance please complete an Incident Report. We promise to protect your anonymity and your child in every possible way.
