The CVA is the state level organization for Volkssporting in California. Its
purpose is to coordinate the activities between the 18 regional clubs and to hold an
annual convention. The CVA is a non-profit association. Individuals cannot become members
of the CVA, but instead are encouraged to join a regional club. The regional clubs are
responsible for creating the events and activities.
The majority of events are walks, but there are also bicycling events, cross-county
ski events, and swimming events. All events are non-competitive and self paced. The
motto of the AVA is "Fun, Fitness, and Friendship" which pretty much says it all. All
events must meet standards set by AVA and the IVV for safety and other factors.
This web site is intended to help people who wish to find out more about volksporting
and how they can participate. It also provides the information and coordination that
the regional clubs need. The Compass magazine provides a lot of up to date information as well as
articles and event information.
