The Alvin Youth Livestock and Arena Association was founded by a group of 40 Alvin citizens in 1976. They were granted a charter by the state of Texas in 1976 for a non-profit organization with tax exempt status. Land was purchased on County Road 351 near FM 517. AYLAA was formed to provide a place for area youth to participate in agricultural related activities.
Thirty-four years later, the association is still operated by an all-volunteer state of officers and Board of Directors. Most of the current board members are children or grandchildren of those who founded the association or were members in earlier years. There are currently 300 family memberships.
AYLAA is dedicated to supporting youth in the area. Approximately 850 youth benefit from activities held at AYLAA each year. An average of 350 youth participate in the Summer Series rodeo events. Five area 4-H groups consisting of 200 members hold their monthly meetings and other related activities in the main building and the arena. Cowboy Ministries which is a Fellowship of Christian Athletes organization hold church services every Sunday. Cowboy Ministries also hosts several fundraisers for non profit organizations. The youth softball and baseball associations uses the practice field with backstops for practices. The Alvin FFA Booster Club and the AYLAA co-sponsor two youth rodeo to raise funds for the Alvin FFA chapter and the AYLAA. Approximately 250 families from all over Texas come to Alvin to participate in the youth rodeos held throughout the year. The AYLAA hosts the annual AYLAA Summer Series held for 6 weeks on Mondays and Tuesdays nights in the summer. AYLAA awards at least four $500 scholarships to Alvin area youth.
AYLAA is funded solely by donations from area businesses, individuals, and fund raising activities by members. The facilities are not maintained by the city or the county. All upkeep and maintenance is done by volunteers. AYLAA members are constantly refurbishing the facilities and modernizing the building and arena to make it more useful for area events.
