Reminder about Saturday's equipment handout

RYA Families,

The 2nd equipment handout will be held this Saturday July 30 from 9:00am-12:00pm at "The Shed" at Langston Hughes Middle School.  Please note players that don't pickup their equipment Saturday may be without equipment the first week of practice.

For new families who don’t know where our equipment trailer is, it is located on the grass field behind the turf field at Langston Hughes Middle School next to the fenced softball field.  The address for Langston Hughes is 11401 Ridge Heights Rd.  Reston, VA 20191.

If you haven’t registered yet you may do so online at http://www.restonseahawks.org/registration

Equipment will only be handed out to members that have paid the necessary registration fees.

Scholarship families must bring a Printed Copy(photocopy) of their county "free and reduced lunch" form or a photocopy of county/state issued medical card for us to keep along with payment in order to receive equipment. 

The equipment handout schedule is as follow:

Time Slot Age Group
9:00am 7 and 8
10:00am 9 and 10
11:00am 11 and 12
12:00pm 13 and older

Please expect some wait time.  We are expecting a large number of players to show. 

Again we would like to stress out that equipment will only be issued to players that have fully paid their balance.  Scholarship players with missing papers will not receive equipment.  If you register after 6:00pm today please bring a copy of the registration to the field. 

An adult must be present with the child to receive the equipment.  Also we advise all players to try their game pants with pads on before leaving the shed.

Lastly players who received their equipment last handout and need to exchange for a different size may bring their items to Saturday's handout.

RYA SKILLS CAMP ANNOUNCEMENT

Parents and Players,

RYA is excited to announce that we will be having a Skills Camp for players ages 7-14 (Age as of October 1) on Saturday August 6th from 10am-12Noon on the turf at Langston Hughes Middle School. 

This campa is based on the Reston Youth Association Football Program’s commitment to teaching basic football skills in a FUN and energetic environment. This one day, two hour camp session will include offensive and defensive position drills under the instruction of RYA coaches. Campers will learn how to apply the drill work to game situations in a non-contact setting with an emphasis on player safety and injury prevention.

This will also give players the opportunity to get a feel for the flow of a typical practice throughout the season.  All campers will be separated into appropriate age groupings for all camp activities. Skills and drills selected are based on USA Football's Player Progression Development Model, ensuring that children are learning in an age-appropriate manner while creating an ideal atmosphere for FUN!  All of our coaches are trained and certified in Heads Up Football and meet USA Football's standards for providing instruction to youth football players.  Every weight division from Anklebiter to 130lb. will be represented at the camp.  Once the camp has concluded we will be available to answer any questions that you might have.

Campers should bring a full water bottle (additional water will be provided) and athletic shoes (cleats are encouraged but not required) Mouth guards are also encouraged but not required. All campers will receive a camp T-shirt. The camp fee is $25. Please visit http://www.restonseahawks.org/registration to register. Sign-up deadline is Friday August 5th.

Oh and did I mention that we might have a special guest in attendance? I won't give away the surprise but I will say that this special guest played in the NFL, is a Super Bowl MVP and played for some school in Ohio.  Who could it be? Guess you'll have to be there to find out.

See you there!

GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Information about Walker-ID

RYA Families,

As we finish the school year and move into the summer, we wanted to remind parents that each player must have an active Walker ID card to play tackle football in the Fall.  All players must have a valid Walker ID card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.  The ID cards are used to verify each player at the official Fairfax County Youth Football League weigh-in certifications that will take place in August. Receipts from the VA DMV will not be accepted.

These identification cards are no longer issued by the DMV in person. It will be mailed to your home within 7-14 business days. So the earlier you can get this done the better.

Please ensure your child’s name, address and date of birth are 100% accurate on the ID.  If you already have a Walker Permit please check the expiration date.  If it has expired you will need to renew it. The cost of the permit is $10.00.

For further details visit a DMV location or go to http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#id/child_id.html

If you have any questions about the tackle program please contact commissioner Jeremy Lee at
