Welcome to the Texas Volkssport Association (TVA) Home Page and greetings from all the Texas walking clubs and their members!
TVA is an association of 20+ Volkssporting Clubs throughout Texas who sponsor hundreds of family-oriented, outdoor activities. Most of these activities are walking events, a few are more challenging hikes, and occasionally we sponsor cycling, swimming, and skating events. All these events are non-competitive. You complete them at your own pace and everyone is a winner!
We have events in the Panhandle, the Piney Woods, along the Gulf, in major cities and small towns, State Parks, City Parks, and even in the West Texas mountains. Our hallmark is exploring Texas, having fun, and sharing friendships.
TVA and its member Clubs, and all events, are sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association (AVA - America's Walking Club). AVA boasts 200 member clubs nationwide that sponsor over 3000 events each year.
We link you to Texas Clubs and Texas events, as well as to the AVA national website so wherever you travel or whenever you want you can find safe and enjoyable walks. Finally, there are numerous, fun award programs that help you keep track of and take pride in your accomplishments.
