Welcome to the 2022 season! Instructions for assessments

Parents and players:

 

Hello and welcome to the 2022 season of VYI Lacrosse!  We are delighted to be able to get the kids back on the playing field this year.

 

A few housekeeping notes to share with you in advance of player assessments:

 

  1.  All players must be registered in order to attend assessments.  Wait listed players should also attend assessments, unless informed otherwise by their respective Age Group Coordinator (AGC). 
  2. The schedules for our player assessment sessions can be found on our home page (www.vyilacrosse.org).  As a general rule, “A” teams are comprised of our most advanced, experienced, and skilled players.  For boys’ 10U and girls’ G3/4, we encourage participation in “A” assessments by players with at least one season of playing lacrosse.  If your player is not planning to attend the “A” team assessments, please refer to the “B/MF” assessment schedule.
  3. Weather is always a challenge this time of year (!!).  Any cancellations/changes to our assessment schedules will be posted on our home page (www.vyilacrosse.org).
  4. IT WILL BE COLD – please dress appropriately.  😊
  5. All players should bring and wear a REVERSIBLE PRACTICE PINNIE (preferably dark to white).
  6. FOR IDENTIFICATION PURPOSES, please do the following before arriving at the field: 
    1. BOYS:  Last name printed in black Sharpie on white medical tape – one on the front of the helmet, and one on the back of the helmet.
    2. GIRLS:  Last name printed in black Sharpie on white medical tape – one on the front of their practice pinnie, and one on the back of their practice pinnie.
  7.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to check-in (we will have a check-in table outside the field).  Assessment sessions will start promptly at the stated time.
  8. REQUIRED EQUIPMENT:
    1. GIRLS:  lacrosse stick, eye goggles, mouth guard, cleats, reversible practice pinnie.
    2. BOYS:  lacrosse stick, helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, arm pads, athletic cup, mouth guard, cleats, reversible practice pinnie.
  9. COVID PROTOCOLS:
    1. VYI follows FCPS protocols re: COVID.  https://www.fcps.edu/return-school/health-and-safety-guidance-document#students-who-tested-positive-or-have-been-diagnosed-with-covid-19  
    2. Please do NOT attend assessments if:
      1. Your player has a cough/sore throat;
      2. Your player has had a fever in the last 72 hours;
      3. Your player has shortness of breath;
      4. Anyone in your house is ill;
      5. Anyone in your house has had contact with someone known to have or under investigation for COVID.

 

Again, we are thrilled to be able to get the kids back on the field this season.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation with and adherence to our COVID protocols.

Mary Forde

We will have a rental equipment pick up session on Wednesday, 2/2/22, 6:00-7:00 pm, at the VYI Equipment Annex (the small brick building behind the Vienna Community Center, next to the bike path).  The lacrosse door is to the right, as you face the Annex building from the parking lot.

Your player must be present to pick up equipment, so that he can properly fitted.

Please bring a $200 check made payable to "VYI Lacrosse."  This is your security deposit, and will be returned to you when you return your rental equipment after the season concludes.

Updated equipment standards - USA Lacrosse
UPDATED EQUIPMENT STANDARDS

Effective January 1, 2022, shoulder pads for boys’ field players must be designed for lacrosse and meet NOCSAE standard ND200.

Effective January 1, 2021, boys' and girls' goalie chest protectors must be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE standard, ND200.

All chest protectors and shoulder pads must contain the NOCSAE logo and SEI certification mark on both the packaging and the product to be legal for play.

A list of all certified products can be found here.

IMPORTANT:  At this time, the implementation date requiring that shoulder pads designed for lacrosse and meeting NOCSAE standard ND200 remains as January 1, 2022. USA Lacrosse is aware of concerns raised by some that there will not be enough products for the start of the 2022 season. USA Lacrosse has spoken with multiple manufacturers and retailers, and they do not expect that current supply chain issues would affect the start of next season. USAL encourages consumers to consider multiple online and brick-and-mortar providers to find needed equipment. If there are any changes or new developments, USA Lacrosse will keep our members updated with the latest information. (updated Nov. 17, 2021)

Concussion Awareness & Information
