As an energetic mom of three, she and her husband have always enjoyed coaching their children in sports. Vona soon recognized a stark lack of quality football programming in her community. So true to her engineering spirit of “see a need, fill a need”, she started her own youth football program called Red Zone Youth Football.
In 2016, with the help of former NFL and NCAA Div-1 football players, Vona launched her first summer training clinic, “Train Like a Pro”. TLP was very well received, with 41 families enrolling in the first session. Word of the fun and education camp spread quickly. In just two short years, Red Zone has grown to over 200 families and now offers options such as flag-football league play, private and small group training, transition to tackle training, and coaching clinics, in addition to its popular summer camps. Vona is dedicated to creating youth sporting environments that are both healthy and competitive. Her programs reflect a mom's perspective on what sports should be for children, and her mission is to ensure that the adults who surround young athletes keep the athletes' growth, development, and well-being as the highest priority.
