IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR 2015 VIENNA FOOTBALL
The 2015 football season will officially begin on August 10, 2015. This is a change in schedule. We had originally planned to start practice on August 3, however, because Labor Day is late this year, and because the FCYFL game schedule commences on September 19, we have decided to delay the start of our season by one week. Here is the location of the weight class practices beginning at 5:45 on August 10:
AB’s: Southside Park
80’s: Oakton High School
90’s: Waters Field
100’s: Nottoway Park
115’s: Nottoway Park
130’s: Cedar Lane
150’s: Cedar Lane
All other dates previously set will remain the same. Your weight class commissioner may run some events the week prior to August 10, please look for that information as it comes along.
The equipment hand out dates and our preseason camp will proceed as originally scheduled. The first weigh in will be on August 15 at Falls Church High School. All players need a DMV identification card in order to weigh in. These ID’s take a couple of weeks to acquire, so please don’t wait until the last minute to attempt to get an ID card if you don’t already have one
We are looking forward to a successful and safe 2015 season for everyone. We have outstanding coaches working with the kids this season and we are very excited to watch all of our teams work to win together.
Program reduces concussion risk by teaching players to take the “head” out of tackling.

All players must have a DMV issued ID in order to play
Everyone participating in the VYI Football must have a valid VA DMV ID card in hand for weigh-in. No other form of ID is acceptable to the football's governing body - the Fairfax County Youth Football League (FCYFL). This means the FCYFL will not accept birth certificates, military IDs, passports or any form of ID other than a VA DMV ID.
For our returning players this is a gentle reminder to check the expiration date on your current ID. Older versions of the ID expire after 5 years. For our new players here is a link to the VA DMV website that explains how to obtain a VA DMV ID.
Due to security issues, the VA DMV will not issue an ID at the time of application. These IDs are mailed to your home and the process can take up to 2 weeks.
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.
The FCYFL urgently needs more officials to cover all of our games. If you know of someone who may be interested in a great part-time job that's a lot of fun, please contact the Fairfax County Football Officiating Assocation (FCFOA)
Candidates must be at least 16 years old and have reliable transportation. Training will be provided. This is a great job for high school students or adults.
