The fall season started on 9/3 at Nottoway Park (Tuesday and Friday practices from 530-630) Registration is now open!
we will practice at Lake Fairfax 1400 Lake Fairfax Drive Reston on Tuesday for a chance to run a big hill!
meet at the cricket fields at 530pm end at 630pm
Directions: enter the park and pass the water mine. Turn left at the end of the water mine parking lot and then after crossing the bridge you will get to a stop sign.
there is a lot to the left and road to the soccer fields to the right. But if you go straight for 50 feet or so then turn right up a small road (it will say Cricket Fields, but the sign is small and easy to miss.)
follow that small road up to the top of the hill and park in the front left of the parking lot. There is a high school race that will be ending right around 530pm so we will meet right near the parking lot edge of the field (in that front left corner of the parking lot)
There will be school buses to the far right end of the parkign lot, so best to avoid them!
Meet on Sunday 10/20 at Providence park (no pre-registration required)
Meet on Saturday 10/26 at Ida Lee PArk in Leesburg (pre-register by sending Coach Craig an email by end of practice on 10/18)

Field and Facility Conduct
Dear Parents and Coaches,
VYI has received some complaints concerning the behavior of some parents, coaches and/or children using area sports facilities. While many of these complaints are eventually discovered to be related to other sports that are not related to VYI, we want to ensure our members continue to be respectful of the neighborhoods, schools, and parks that host our practices and events. Some of the specific complaints we’ve received include:
Parking in front of neighborhood houses and obstructing resident access
Walking through private property
Generally disturbing the peace and quiet of the people living around the fields and gyms
As stated previously, we don’t know if any of the incidents reported involve VYI parents, coaches or children but it is appropriate that we establish guidelines so that everyone knows what is expected of them. Anything a parent, coach or player does while attending a VYI activity reflects on VYI and all of us individually.
Use of area gyms and fields is a privilege not a right. VYI has an excellent reputation in the community and because of that we enjoy certain privileges. It is imperative that we maintain this reputation. We are guests in these neighborhoods and must conduct ourselves accordingly.
We will be amending the parents Code of Conduct rules to spell out specific expectations but here are some rules that we must all follow:
Parking on residential side streets is only permitted when all lots adjacent to a facility are full.
Do not park in the designated SACC (School Age Child Care) parking areas in school parking lots
When it is necessary to park on a neighborhood street we must be quiet and respectful of the residents and their property. This means there should be no yelling, littering or trespassing on private property.
Never park in such a way as to block a driveway or otherwise obstruct the resident from leaving their home or parking in front of it.
Make sure we leave each facility clean and free of trash.
Be a leader. If you witness inappropriate behavior intervene and report to a coach or commissioner as appropriate.
We appreciate your support in ensuring that we have continued access to the facilities that are vital to our sports programs.
