Support of local, family-owned businesses: PJ's Sports
PJ's Sports in Falls Church has been a tremendously reliable and helpful vendor for VYI Lacrosse for many, many years - their service has always been above and beyond. :-) Below is from Mike Galipo, the owner and manager of PJ's:
PJ’s Sports is open! We have been working extremely hard to make sure the store meets and exceeds COVID-19 safety precautions that have been set forth. We will continue to monitor official state recommendations and will follow all guidelines as issued by Fairfax County and the state of Virginia. The safety and well-being of our customers and employees is paramount. We have increased sanitation and we will have systems in place to minimize risk of exposure. We will offer curbside pickup and limit the number of customers in store at one time. In addition, customers and store employees will need to wear a mask and observe the 6ft social distancing rule.
*We are very excited to see our customers again soon and be safe*
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:
