Come join the Higher Achievement Young Professionals Board for the 4th annual Field Day RVA! Field Day RVA is a community fundraising event for Higher Achievement, a nonprofit organization partnered with Richmond Public Schools to provide academic enrichment in order to close the achievement gap during the pivotal middle school years.

Get back to your youth and compete in teams of 5-8 people in field day events just like when you were in middle school! The competition will include a water balloon toss, relay races, capture the flag, corn hole, and, of course, tug of war. There will be prizes, music, beer and food trucks, and more!

Tickets are $40 and include entry, a t-shirt, event cup, and one free beer ticket. Teams are encouraged to dress up for the uniform contest judged by a surprise guest judge!

Field Goal Kicking Competition

Back by popular request, we will have a Field Goal Kicking Competition again this year. For $10, compete to make the most field goals out of 3 (If there is a tie, we'll go for distance). There will be a prize! When registering for Field Day RVA you can pre-register for the competition. Day-of registration will be available as well. And, good news! You don't have to be on a team to participate - spectators are welcome to compete in this event as well!
