Message from the Fields’ Desk:
VYS partners with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), Fairfax County Parks Authority (FCPA) and private entities to provide over twenty-five fields for VYS’ 250 house and travel teams. We are responsible for the upkeep (including seeding, mowing and lining) of the majority of our grass fields and must contribute to any repairs on our turf fields. As a result, it is important that all VYS members (coaches, parents, players, and spectators) employ proper use and care for these fields so that our players have the best possible fields on which to train and play. Please help us protect our fields by following the information in the VYS Fields Policy and reminding others to do the same when you are at practices or games. Each VYS member contributes to a fields’ fund upon registration which helps ensure not only the maintenance of our current fields, but also enables the Club to invest in the development of new fields for our Club.
We are always looking for members to assist in making our current fields better and to identify new opportunities for future fields. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in getting involved in our strategic fields’ plan or if you have ideas that you would like to pass along.
