Welcome to the Vienna Youth, Inc. (VYI) Lacrosse home page. VYI Lacrosse participates in the Northern Virginia Youth Lacrosse League (NVYLL). The purpose of the NVYLL is to provide the youth residing within the geographical boundaries of northern Virginia a healthful, enjoyable leisure time activity and as a corollary to develop qualities that may help them in later life, sportsmanship, team play, and integrity.
Support of local, family-owned businesses: PJ's Sports
PJ's Sports has been a tremendously reliable and helpful vendor for VYI Lacrosse for many, many years - their service has always been above and beyond. :-)
Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, PJ's Sports in Falls Church (also known as "PJ's Soccer/Lacrosse") has been forced to temporarily close. During this difficult time, PJ's is offering their customers the opportunity to purchase $100 gift cards in which they will receive $120 value.
The staff, management, and ownership of PJ's greatly appreciates the support during these difficult times.
For the safety and well-being of our participants and in compliance with the Governor’s orders, VYI will be cancelling the spring sports seasons for lacrosse, volleyball, flag football, rugby, and track.
VYI understands that some families are impacted more than others and will therefore offer each family one of three choices related to fees already paid for the season (including – if applicable for your sport - base registration fees, any late fees, and any non-volunteer fees that were paid).
The choices are enumerated at our website on a registration form that each family, which is currently registered for a VYI Spring sport, must fill out. You need to go to www.vyi.org and at our home page, click on "REGISTER ONLINE" in the left hand column and hit "SUBMIT" after your personal info and then complete the registration form questions.
YOU MUST COMPLETE THE REGISTRATION FORM TO QUALIFY FOR ONE OF THE THREE FOLLOWING CHOICES:
DONATE - VYI is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization and your donations are always appreciated. VYI uses these donated funds to serve our community and to obtain fields and gyms, buy equipment, store equipment, pay fees for those in need, and many other uses related to providing our youth sports programs. We expect INCREASED NEED for scholarships in the near future. If you wish to donate, click on "DONATE" and you will be offered a thank you letter where you can fill in the amount of your fees for tax related purposes.
CREDIT - VYI offers you the opportunity to leave your money with VYI to be credited toward a future season. By clicking on "CREDIT" VYI will maintain these amounts on credit at our website and in our physical records and they may be used as a credit against future fees for other VYI seasons. Credits must be used by 7/1/2021.
REFUND - VYI offers a third alternative by clicking on "REFUND" and that is to get a credit on your credit card bill or a check for fees already paid.
Processing this many requests at once is unprecedented for us and will require a significant effort on the part of our volunteers. Please bear with us as we process your requests.
Concussion awareness is a growing topic in youth sports. In support of our athletes, VYI Lacrosse is providing an overview of concussions to both raise concussion awareness and also instill knowledge about the symptoms and risks of concussions across our coaching staff and parent community.
Please take a few minutes to review the information, which includes signs and symptoms of concussion and return to play risks and guidelines.
Parents are also encouraged to visit the "Heads-up" page on the CDC website to review concussion information and symptoms:
All VYI families can update their contact information: addresses, phone numbers and e-mails at any time. Here's how:
1) Click on the 'Edit My Account' button at the bottom of the lower left hand menu options.
2) Enter your e-mail address and password. (Don't know your password, just read the instructions above the data entry box.)
3) Click on any family member's name and you will have access to change what you need.
Keeping your information up to date is important. All VYI sports rely on the contact information in our database and out dated information may cause you to miss important updates.
